Hello my friends. So, here it is late Tuesday afternoon. My desk looking almost neat and tidy. At the top left are all the service sheets printed and folded in readiness for my Dad’s funeral on Monday. There’s a set of alphabet stamps, a baby wipe I’ve been using to wipe up distress inks, some printed photos, memento inks, an empty cutting mat, and a few bits and bobs. It’s tidy because I had just finished photographing the last of Mrs D’s cards, and put them ready for her, and photographing a commission of boxes and handbags which are also finished and need to travel with me at the weekend. I had made a lovely inky mess colouring the ATCs for Saturday, laid them on the floor to dry, cleaned up, and so had a gloriously empty desk. I had treated myself for my birthday to the die which made that rather cute triangle box. I just HAD to play with it…
The floor, as you can see, is another matter. I had actually put away the RUB containing the distress inks when I took this photo, AND two boxes of ribbons, AND tidied the waste bin into a sensible place. I had, however, also placed a box containing a tyre pump (birthday present from my daughters), an RUB with the boxes and handbags, the ice cream container of Mrs D’s cards, and a wallet of cards for the hotel, all near the top of the stairs to be taken down whenever I was going that way. You can see the four pieces of paper on which are all the little ATC backgrounds. You can see that I haven’t hovered yet – paper poo all over the carpet. You can also see the houseplants hanging their tongues out, gasping for water! Note to self – MUST do that…
So that’s my little space in the universe today. It’s only three more sleeps until the Crop – and I’m really looking forward to welcoming so many to the Homeland. Lunch is organised in my head and on paper, tables are already in the room, plus lovely comfy chairs – even organised for the heating to be on if we need it. Feeling jealous that you are not among those who are coming? There’s still room – just let me know in your comments… Mrs D has announced she is DEFINITELY coming as she is beginning to feel somewhat better. She has booked my spare bed for the weekend.
That’s it this week folks. Shorter than usual because I still have plenty to do. Thank you to those who have wished me a special birthday today – thanks Jan for the card! It has been a good day – a little retail therapy!
Take care folk. See you next week with photos of the crop. God bless.
