a land down 'unda

I'm very excited for mart tonight as he has just finished booking a trip to Brisbane for early next March. He is off with his parents to see his brother Trevor and Beckie as they will have a newly born babe in arms by then (currently trading under the name of Sparkles!!).

It's all very exciting as I'll be a scary old Aunt and Mart an Uncle for the first time (thanks Trev for the comparison with Father Jack and Mrs. Doyle in Father Ted by the least Sparkles will be well warned of our madness anyhow!).

I'm not going which is a total bummer...the usual financial restrictions along with plans to have our extension in full swing by then. I will of course be skyping Sparkles lots and absolutely cannot wait to meet the little mite later on in the year when hopefully the Australian Smith clan come to visit us here.

The gorgeous photo above of Beckie and Trevor is on their wedding day just over a year ago. It was the last time we saw them in the flesh, so we are looking forward to a good catch up in 2009.
