Wow, it's Wednesday again! Where did that last week go?? I had been intending to post loads and get back into the swing of blogging again but then life happened and all my best intentions shacked up with my will power and they both fled the country. Consequently, not only am I blog-postless but I'm also feeling fat. Oh, and I'm also waaaaay behind on the things I need to do.

All this has not been helped by Herself who decided on Monday that it would be a good idea to trip over her own feet and break her fall with her face. This resulted in the school phoning me at 9.20am to come fetch her. When I got there she was covered in blood and not in a happy frame of mind. Once we'd cleaned her up a bit more it turned out she'd grazed her forehead, cheek and nose; bitten her tongue and top lip and also dislodged three teeth. They're not completely out, thank goodness, but they're more than a little wobbly! Luckily they're still her baby teeth so it's not a complete disaster but still not what I (or her) needed on a Monday morning. After the emergency dental appointment we came home and she suddenly decided she was fine. And then she decided she was bored. And then she whinged..... the whole day! So consequently, I spent all day entertaining her and got nothing done. Remind me again, why I volunteered to become a parent??

Anyway, so here I am on Wednesday posting a photo of my Workdesk. Several of you have told me that this is not a mess... but when you consider how small my space is it definitely feels messy. I've had to clear some of the things away that I was working on as they're a secret until the new Stampin' Up European Mini Catalogue is launched on Friday. After that date I'll be able to share again. The other thing that I'm working on is all preparation for a workshop on Friday night. The hostess wants ideas for wedding invites and her colours are Purple and Silver... hence all the purple cardstock and inkpads on my desk!!

If you'd like to join in with the WOYWW meme then head over to Julia's blog for more details! Thanks for popping by and all your wonderful comments. I really appreciate them!

Now, I'm off back to my desk to see if I can come up with some more Purple and Silver ideas! Wish me luck!!


  1. ACK for "herself"! Sounds as if it all worked out. Very cool hanging storage on the workspace and wishing you luck with purple and silver:)

  2. Thanks for popping over Anthea, I am sorry to hear about your daughter's calamity.. truly they are treasures, but try you they do! one day it will seem worth it all!
    looking forward to the reveals.. thanks for sharing and happy WOYWW - and I too have fallen of the watching what I eat saga which I began so virtuously.. a patch of unwellness lasing for 4 weeks caused me to fall apart and am still gathering up the pieces..God bless you in all things..
    love Shaz in Oz.x

  3. Definitely not a mess - work on that, won't you?

  4. Creative mess is so much more fun, that's my excuse anyway and sticking to it! Good luck with the Wedding Invite samples and also the weight thingy, such a menace when it wont play ball! Thanks for sharing. Carolxx

  6. Sounds like you've had a real nightmare - thank god she's alright though - it could have been a lot worse. Her teeth will be fine!!

    happy WOYWW

  8. {{{much giggling going on here!}}} I thought it was funny that "all my best intentions shacked up with my will power and they both fled the country." So sounds like me this week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #83

  9. I had one of my kids home from school & bored this week too. You space looks cluttered a bit but not messy. I have a feeling you can find nearly everything you want when you need it.

  10. This is such a great site! I like the way you set this up! Great content! Thanks for sharing this!...Daniel
