Well, as usual it’s late in the day as I start to write this. With best intentions, I took my pictures yesterday although in failing light. I thought I’d be all prepared and even start writing this post early. As if.
My brother turned up last night with a model fashioned out of a shoe box… my niece who’s 5, got some homework to make a Tudor House. Who did little brother turn to? Yep, me. Me with all the paper, sticky stuff, tools – and of course talent (well, perhaps not the latter then)! Doing all that really ate into my evening. He turned up at 7pm and went at well turned 1.30am. By the time I’d tidied up it was 2am. I went to bed, took the laptop and camera with the intention of at least taking the pictures off and getting them ready for this post – alas, it wasn’t to be. I felt to sleep with the laptop open and on my knee…
I came downstairs this morning and took pics again while the light was really good. With distractions from the cat, who wants me to hand feed her the biscuits in her bowl or stroke her while she eats, then the dog trying to shove his nose where it shouldn’t be (this morning in the cat litter igloo) so my day so far has gone it’s usual way.
So, here is the desk looking tidied up quite frankly! I had used my cutter when my brother came round but I thought I would actually share that visit as another blog post altogether!
First though, I want to show you my little visitor that I found on my desk when I was sat to the laptop.
|ooh this feels good, i'll just scratch my chin...|
|i'll just move on to my ear because this is heaven.. this white thing is great for scratching on!|
|oops! caught out!|
|I'll just roll on my back and look cute, then My Mummy won't tell me off!|
|All that scratching has worn me out! ....Laters!!!!|
She finally settled down after a good 10 minutes playing, then eating a feather butterfly that the dog had already destroyed, then had a go at my camera wrist strap….
When she woke up and got back in her box, I had a quick tidy before my brother turned up.. Then it had everything all over it because I had to move things to accommodate him. When he went at approx. 1.30am I had another quick tidy up.
Here is what it looked like before I sat down to the desk today.
Pretty tidy for me. And very boring, so I do apologise. If there is anything you want to ask about - please feel free! The scales were out so that I could weigh some stuff to see how much it is going to cost to post (sorry Di – not done it yet)!!!… other than that, I've just swung my Cameo round to the side so that I could spread out a bit more. Having pens and tools on the desk takes most of the room up – I might have to do something to remedy that because I don’t have a big desk in the first place and now I have a grand calibur, I want somewhere to put it so it’s also on hand, just as the Cameo is where I've put it on the desk.
Not much else to say about it so I may as well let you go back to Julia’s so that you can visit the next desk.
Thank you for visiting – please leave a comment. I looked at my stats and noticed how many people come to visit without leaving a message. It makes me feel sad that people didn’t stop to say hello
If you want to go to Julia’s over at the Stamping Ground – the link is HERE.
ENJOY and happy crafting
