WOYWW520 – A GIANT Celebration!
Congratulations to everyone – and especially to Julia for thinking up this wonderful idea – on our 10th Anniversary! 10 years of showing our workspace to the world – in all its tidy, or untidy, glory! Thank you, Julia, for having the idea all those years ago – and thank you everyone for bearing with my witterings and coming to visit, making lovely comments. I think I have been looking at WOYWW since sometime in 2012 – before I had a site of my own. My first attempt to join in was to leave a comment on Patsy’s blog – and I won her draw – and received a lovely painting she had done. That fired my enthusiasm, and I soon had my own site – gone now, since I changed server – and have been fairly regular contributor since then. Didn’t make it to a crop until 2016, barely two months after John died, but enjoyed myself SO much meeting everyone, I couldn’t resist the challenge to host for the last two years. Annie and Jo’s turn this year – and can we believe it is only a week and a half to the crop??
So, my desk hasn’t any action for the past three and a half weeks, as I have been away. I arrived home Sunday afternoon, but wasn’t in the house very long before this happened…
…I started in on Monday morning, busily trying to catch up with everything. So, what can we see? Drawers out all over the floor, paper poo which missed the waste bin, boxes of card, paper, confetti, peel-offs, inks.. A half drunk glass of ginger beer, a pile of cards ready for the hotel – they are getting desperate – specs, glue, scissors, and a chocolate bar wrapper. Sorry, but the chocolate bar had already been eaten! And I honestly did leave it neat and tidy when I went away!
I confess to having had a glorious time away – Chris and Adrian’s Golden wedding anniversary, a time in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, then a meet up with my college friends in Derbyshire. The caravan is now nicely tucked up in storage until I go away again (ssshh! – the week after the crop!) Some asked to see pictures from my summer – so just a flavour…
So there you have it, folks. It feels really odd living in a house again after all that time in the van, but I expect I shall get used to it. I’m not taking part in the ATC pass-on – I haven’t even started on my things for the crop yet, so thought I should concentrate on those first.
Happy anniversary to everyone. Take care. God bless.
