Oooh - I bet you thought i'd forgotten didn't you... Well, I am late in posting for WOYWW (click on this link to Stamping Ground and Julia's blog if you want to join in the fun) ...
But this is the reason I am late today - if you are of nervous disposition - please look away NOW
Well, the other night I had to go and fetch Ashley from tennis - on the way back I needed to call into TESCO :O(... The last time I went shopping was New Years Eve and my darling husband has done all the shopping since - for obvious reasons. Anyway, I was drawn like a magnet to the stationery aisle.. so the desk became a bit of a dumping ground for said shopping... You will see that grey box - which is a set of drawers that cost £2.50... - yes that what I thought - so I bought two sets - well you would wouldn't you... The green folder cost me 20p so I got two of those too. These are to file my stamps in. Not sure how successful this will be but we'll give it a try.
On the back wall you may be able to spy a lovely card sent to me by the lovely Tracey from 'Handmade with Love' - its been made using that lovely stamp my Kanban (need it)... She also very kindly included several stamped images of it so I can use it on cards too.
Here's another view of the bombsite:
Not much to say really apart from "what a mess"!!!
The lovely Lynn from Crafty Linby came to see me yesterday and it was absolutely fab to meet her. We NEVER STOPPED TALKING... I hadn't talk so much in ages (or since I was at work)... - if you read this Lynn, thanks for coming and putting up with the bombsite of a craftroom, smelly cats, hyper dog, cheeky kids and talkative old me!!! Lynn brought me some goodies in a bag which I'll blog in next couple of days... I felt like it was my Birthday (oh - it is tomorrow tee hee)!!!
HOWEVER - after some tidying and chaning shelves round etc, here is the desk now:
I've moved my cuttlebug and drawers back to my desk. Also - do you see my new cupcake stand - bargain... £14.50 off e-bay. I've put my adhesives in the botton, punches in the middle and pins/pin cushion and tape measure in the top - although they won't be staying there as they have their own home. I've spun my silhouette round just to make more room.
Here's the new printer in situ (I haven't installed the CISS (continuous inky supply system) yet as the printer came with cartridges so thought I might as well use those up first as they'll never be needed once the CISS is installed. The new £2.50 drawers now have all my print paper of different types in - to save me keep moving the plastic boxes round (I always seemed to need the one at the bottom or middle).
Just a little update to provide you with, as I have just spoken with my surgeon's secretary:
I will be going to the hospital next Friday (19th) for a pre-op assessment, then will be going in for surgery on 22nd March and having surgery on 23rd March. Surgeon said I should expect to be staying in at least 3 days.
Right, I'm just going to have a relaxing bath to sooth my back then will return to have a nosey at a desk near you!!! If you haven't already - go join the fun, visit all the other WOYWWers via Julia's blog - have a nosey, see what they're up to and what they've got - whether messy or not and be sure to leave a comment - even if it's just to say hi. Click here and have fun!!!
Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this post. Please come back again.
Apologies for any typos, spelling mistakes and/or bad grammar but the bath is calling and i've somewhat rushed this post!!!
