The Family Are Arriving!!

You can probably imagine that I'm writing this post with a song in my heart (no, don't ask me which song!!) as my little family are arriving from France later on today - daughter, son-in-law, 13 year old granddaughter, AND Alfred, their little French Bulldog puppy.  We haven't seen them since Christmas and they are actually staying for ten days.  Yes, that's right, TEN days.  Woop Woop!!

My dear friend Shady (I always just call him Shady, but I suppose I should give him his full title of Shady Del Knight!) has been nagging me to see more photos of Alfred, and I have promised to take some whilst he is over here staying with us.  But, just to make Shady's day, I shall post this photo just to keep him going!!




It will be lovely to have the whole family together again (for newer followers, my other daughter with her two little ones only lives five minutes away from me) and I expect there will be lots of talk about the wedding which is due to take place in June.  Eeek!  I'm sure it will be here before we know it, so it's getting very exciting.




Well, I must dash just now - got to make sure the house is spit-spot before they arrive!!  Hope all my lovely Followers have a super weekend and look forward to catching up with you all soon.

Hope you have the most wonderful time with your precious family this week! Take lots of pictures and make plenty of memories :) Also, please FORGET ABOUT US, will you? You need to focus on them solely and we'll be waiting to hear all about it once you've dried your tears, as I'm sure you'll feel very sad for a day or two once they leave and life returns to normal. Holding thumbs for perfect weather! MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY SINGLE SECOND!

Hugs,

Yay Alfred!!! Thank you for the puppy picture, Thisisme, and for remembering me in your text. I never forgot that Friday's the big day when Alfred begins his visit. I love dogs and unfortunately was not allowed to have one as a boy because my mother thought it would make the house a mess. I made up for it by owning a Yorkshire in the 1970s and my Cocker Spaniel which I have owned since 1999. I hope you and your family have a wonderful ten days together starting with a fab weekend, dear friend!
