Matthieu got home yesterday at 1pm and was at work a half an hour later with strick instructions that I was not allowed to look in his suitcase! Now, if he hadn't said that I would not have been incredible tempted everytime I passed by it all afternoon yesterday. Then, last night he pulled out gift after gift after gift. the kids all got tees and a beautiful new playmat. I got a gorgeous 'real' pashmina scarf. Who knew that mountain goat beard could be so soft!! who knew that real pashmina comes from mountain goat beard LOL!! Then out came the bling, a silk painting, an embroidered bed cover, an embroidered shirt with a heart on it and he's keeping some aside for Valentine's day and my birthday :D A week alone with the kids was totally worth all this spoiling!!
