I'm constantly being suprised... with two small children in my life they show and teach me things I just couldn't imagine. It is wonderful (and sometimes a little exhausting!!!)

I was last surprised at my baby shower last June when my sister and mother arrived unannounced! The flew up especially for it! Yeah!

Leigh said...

I was just surprised about 15 minutes ago! I was bringing my very reluctant toddler in from playing outside. I was trying to be "fun" and carrying her by her feet, but she was too mad at having to go inside to enjoy the ride- By the time I got in the door I barely had a grip on her, and my husband thought that was a good time to jump out and scare me! Almost dropped the baby right on her head! (But it startled her out of her bad mood, so it's OK by me!)

I'm terrible with surprises if I know they're coming, he he!

The last time I had a really big surprise was my birthday last year. I was planning on having a quiet day at home with my kids and also meet someone for a quick morning tea at my place. On the day, my husband confessed to me that he had taken the day off work, gotten a babysitter and cancelled all other plans and was taking me on a day of shopping and visiting all of our favourite sites when we were first married! One of my best birthdays ever :)

Hmmmm, the last time I was surprised??? I know, last year when my husband came home from work and said " Lets just go and live there". Meaning after years of me wanting to go to Italy for a 4 week holiday without our children, He decides He wants to just pack up and go for a year with the kids of course. So we are going in July but only for 3 months, which could possibly turn into a year.
Yes this was my last and biggest Surprise.
Love you work Gemma!

A couple weeks ago I got a call from my brother saying that he was finally home from Iraq and could I come pick him up at 4am, please. I was ecstatic!

sally said...

I can't remember the last time I was surprised, it doesn't happen very much. My husband and I are both accountants and we plan everything out. Usually my sister who lives close to me surprises me all the time. IN fact just the other day she gave me some cool buttons from a giveaway she won. so I guess I have been surprised recently!!
