Hello my friends. Away again last week – but what a precious time I had being pampered by my family – and it turned out, by my friends! Spoiled rotten, I had almost forgotten how to make a cup of tea by the time I got home! Seeing the whole of my family is always special as they live the other side of Britain – so plenty of driving to be done, and visits to wallpaper shops (need to do the lounge) and craft shops became a real treat for us all – along with the required trips to tea and coffee places!!! The week finished with a meet-up with Chris and Adrian (Mr & Mrs D). They continue to make their way slowly across the canal system toward their new home – it has all taken a frustratingly long time, but it seems the end of the house purchase is almost within grasp. Currently they are in Derbyshire, and will quite possibly cross into Nottinghamshire today. Every few days they stop, catch up with friends in the Boaters Christian Fellowship,meet new folks on the canal, do some shopping, or generally have a lazy day. They will soon be in the right place!! Watch this space, as they say.

So, my desk today shows a complete contrast from one end to the other. I-spy two pairs of specs, two pairs of scissors, hand cream, sweets, an empty cutting mat, DST on the glass mat, a pile of little tag shaped packs waiting to be coloured in – and that’s on the tidy side! On the rather more cluttered (polite word!) side is a pile of cards waiting to be photographed before going to the hotel, large white basket with diary and church notice sheet info, large blue folder which means, yes, it’s my turn to lead worship on Sunday, lead for re-charging the phone (it was about to die!) and my early morning cuppa. The image on the computer is the one from my visit to Bodnant Gardens on Good Friday. Under the desk is my knitting pattern folder, and some boxes ready for a craft stall I have been asked to partake in. Nothing in them yet as I can’t think as far as June!! I’m having enough trouble sorting out one day at a time!

So that’s me this week folks. I’ll be around to visit after I have done the shopping and sorted the soup for Step Inside.

Take care my friends. God bless.

    What a lovely open space to work on! Since I’ve started using the laptop on my work table, moving it has become a necessity to crafting. I’ll show you a picture next week of what has taken up my laptop space. hehe. Glad you had a lovely holiday. You should be pampered 😉 Creative Blessings! Kelly #27

    Nice neat desk today! I have been eying those glass mats – might need to get one! Too bad you missed Spring and went right into summer, but really, at the moment, I would love that! We finally got a nice sunny day, but still chilly at 48F. Thanks for your visit! Lindart #29

    Morning, my lovely busy bee! So glad you had a lot of pampering whilst away last week, you deserve it as you do so much for so many others – last week was ‘your’ time. Nice to see Chris and her husband too. Bodnant! A lovely place to visit and such a changing face with the seasons I guess. Love the arch (shh, wont say why) must be coming to bloom time. Will you visit then? Ever busy, I will let you get on, you have so much to do. Take care and God Bless, Neet 3 xx

    How fun to spend time with family and friends!! We’ll get to see family in early June (granddaughter’s graduation) and I’ll get to see friends end of June (our company’s annual convention). Hope you have a most wonderful week! Carol N #28

    Lovely post Margaret, I absolutely loved reading about your being with all the family. Worth the miles, huh. Great news for Mr and Mrs D, am delighted that they are on the move in both senses, they seem as busy on the water as you are on dry land! I think I Spy is probably the best description for a WOYWW desk, it’s just what I like to do! And, not to promote panic, but in about 10 days, June will be next month and well, argh!

    Hi Margaret, glad to hear you had such a relaxing time with your family and how nice that you were able to meet up with Chris and Adrian again. It will be so nice for them to be in their own home again although their meanderings among the waterways sounds pretty idyllic to me. Thanks for your earlier comment – and thanks, I had a lovely time with my sister. Have a great week. Hugs, Elizabeth x #25

    Hi Margaret, nice to hear that Chris and Adrian are nearly here, sounds like a great trip they’re having. Bet they had a nice day today as the weather here has suddenly gone really warm. Your desk looks tidy today but sounds like you’ve been too busy having a good time to craft which can’t be bad. Have a great woyww and happy crafty week, Angela x18x

    Yay, I’m so glad that you had such a good time on your road trip – even better is the property news for Mr&Mrs D. Fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly for them from now on. You’re even busier than I am, missus! How great that your cards are flying from the hotel shop, I only hope that mine do the same at WI 😀 Now you’re back, I must get that parcel of bags off to you!

    So thrilled that you’ve been well and truly spoilt….you deserve it. I’m up to 10 bags now and have put a pic on my blog for you….feel free to copy the pics. I’ve enjoyed making them and even managed to acquire a few more pieces of lining fabric from Jo’s last night so there may be more to come yet. Have a fun week. Hugs, Annie x #14

    Welcome home! Glad you’ve had such an enjoyable time being looked after for a change rather than you putting yourself out for others all the time. Love the image on the pc, I enlarged it for a good look. Helen #2
