I really hope that everyone is ok and having a great summer so far - whether that be blogging, crafting, gardening or even going on holiday (lucky peeps)!!! Well, sadly - i've hardly been doing any of these things apart from the odd card - which I hope to share with you over the next few days.
Followers and blog buddies will probably notice that I haven't posted since 7th July and haven't really been blogging either - i've had quite a few issues to deal with so blogging and crafting have taken a bit of a back seat. However, lots of blogging friends have kindly been keeping in touch via e-mail.
Anyway, i'm going to try and make my posts a bit shorter (I hear some of you cheer)!!! leaving the everyday life stuff for the private email conversations for now.Also - I just want to apologise for not keeping up with you all through WOYWW - and thank all those who have dropped by asking how I am and noticing that i've not been 'around'...
So, without further ado - here is a pic of my desk from last week - more on WHY later!!!
Well, apart from said issues - i've not been up to much apart from being pretty miserable and in a lot of pain - this has not improved at all since I last blogged and have seen the doctor twice in the last two weeks. I am now on a lot more tablets and still waiting for an appointment letter with the pain specialist to land through my letterbox.
Some news that I can share with you is that our eldest DS is currently in Madrid with school - and has been marching his friends all over the place as, having been twice before, he really knows his way around. The three of them went to Athletico Madrid stadium on Monday (we'd been there before and watched a game against Deportivo), and yesterday he went to Madrid Zoo - (we've never been there before though) - and today he was supposed to be going to the Bernabau - where we have been twice before - and had lunch there for our birthday - you see - and i've said this before - me and eldest DS share a birthday - and youngest DS is only one week after, so we've taken them twice in the past to Madrid for their Birthday celebrations - so much more memorable than an animate object. So, even though he's gone with the school - because he's in sixth form and knows his way around (yes, even after two visits he know where everything is and had remembered everything after our first trip having said that we did stay for five nights both times), they have let him and his two friends (both 17) do a bit of their own thing. I just hope he's putting his Spanish to good use -(unless he's talking a load of crap when he's at home and pretending he's speaking fluent Spanish lol) as, we noticed when we were in Madrid - not a lot of people speak much English - at least not like the touristy holiday type places. Which is nice actually.
Anyway, the reason i've not been able to take a piccy of my desk this week is because my camera is in Madrid with DS. And hopefully he's not lost it - like he has his phone! Well, he says its been nicked - and he's probably said this as he's lost 5 phones in the past 3 years as well as breaking a brand new one after less than two weeks of having it.... DH said that he also nearly lost one in Wimbledon, plus he lost one when I took him to London last November on the tube, before that he lost one within an hour of arriving on a campsite - so, you hopefully get the picture that he's pretty rubbish with phones. He was on about going to the police station today sometime to report it and will have to claim on the insurance... he did say it was in his bag and that he never left it unattended - so i'm giving him the benefit of the doubt.
The reason I've got a pic of last weeks desk was because I had good intentions of joining in, but in the end I just never got round to it then had a really bad weekend again - hardly being able to get on and off the sofa come Sunday... Anyway - turns out it came in useful after all!!!
Here is a close up of that bathroom rack i bought from TESCO a couple of weeks ago for £6 - with all my Martha Stewart punches (and one Stampin Up punch) on.
I've made a few cards over last few weeks - it takes me a while to do each one as I have to have the usual break and come back to them later. I hope to blog them over next few days so hopefully you'll pop back again and have a look.
I will try and pop round to see some desks over next few days - but it'll be sporadic.
Really missed you all - and if you have popped in to read this post - please leave a comment. Also - if you are wandering what this WOYWW thing is all about - pop over to Julias blog and read all about it... better still - join in!!!!
Thanks for reading - please leave a comment to say you've been - then come back again. hugs, Paula x x x
