What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? (26 June 2013)

Sadly I had to take a little break from joining in Ladies.  Life and health took over but after much rest and recuperation I’m back and raring to go.  To be honest the break away from the internet did me the world of good.  I even took time away from crafting.  Still not got much time to craft as life is super hectic here.  On Monday I will finally get the keys to the shop!  Yay, the builders, plumbers and decorators will have finished and in we go.  Not sure what the state of the floor will be like but I’m hoping it won’t need replacing after all the work has been completed as this is an expense I can do without.
Anyway, enough work talk and on to the purpose of your visit.  This is my desk last night.
I had spent the weekend on a big tidy and sort and as you can see there isn’t really anything exciting to look at.  
Don’t forget to take a look here on Julia’s blog to see lots and lots of crafty spaces all around the world.
If you have made it here, I thank you and sorry but another little bit of work!  If you take a look at the top on the left there is a competition over on my website.  Click on the logo to enter.  It closes 30 June and I’m sorry to any international Ladies but its only open to the UK.

    Thank you for your visit–and welcome back! Life and health can try to slow us down sometimes, so it is good to take a break when you need to. I had horrible back problems a year and a half ago, and didn’t even look at my blog for about three months. So I was absolutely delighted when I came back to it, and all my followers were still there, and everyone just let me jump right back in. So, happy that you are feeling good and doing well! Hugs! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #14

    Ooh! You have some wonderful posts on your blog and a wooden toyshop? Well okay a shop that sells wooden toys is what I really mean! LOVE those type of toys! Good luck! Your desk is nice and neat. Thank you for popping by my desk and yes, the physio hurts my shoulder more than my thus on the spuds did. But the fall was cheaper….! :O) #70

  17. 26th June 2013 / 2:38 pm

    There’s always something to see I find, even if the desk owner doesn’t think so! I was drawn to your box of Project Life cards as I’m about to have a go at that style of scrapping myself. Good luck with the shop opening x

    Glad you’re feeling better, we all need some ‘time out’ now and again. The shop sounds exciting, although I’m sure at the moment it must seem like a lot of hard work, but I’m sure it will be fabulous. Thank you so much for your visit and your kind words. I hope you have a great woyww week. Liz@71

    Sometimes you just need to stop and take time to recharge the batteries, which then enables you to cope a little better with what life throws at you. All the best with your new business and thank you for visiting me already.
