Her Majesty, The CBC and me




O.K, Here's the scoop. On Tuesday I got an e-mail from Colleen Jones at the CBC. The queen is visiting Canada on June 28th. She will begin her tour here in Nova Scotia. In honour of her visit the National news is going to do a little piece on hats. So, Colleen googled hats and Nova Scotia and guess whose blog came up? The short of it is that on Monday morning, the CBC will be arriving at my little ramshackle home studio to film and interview me and hear my humble opinion about the queen and hats.
The whole thing is quite surreal. When I was reading the e-mail I happened to have Dusty home from school sick that day. I had made him muffins and being the bad mommy that I am I refused to allow him a fourth muffin. So, there I am reading this rather significant news while wrestling a muffin tray out of Dusty's little hands. Nothing can keep you real like a child.
This upcoming interview, it turns out, was just the thing I needed to clean my studio. I have begged them to not film the laundry and lego on the way up to the studio. They have given me their word. If anyone knows a prayer for nervous wrecks please say it for me. I'll keep you posted.
