WEDNESDAY BLUES ...


OK I admit it - got out of bed the wrong side this morning - and then fell over a piece of furniture left on the landing waiting for someone to shift it (eg not me) and have now got a bruise the size of Wales on my thigh. NOT a happy bunny ...

But this week's desk contains a work in progress which is coming only slowly, despite using the most gorgeous, scrumptious and utterly beautiful papers from the Basic Grey "Granola" range. Honestly, this stuff is so yummy it's positively criminal to use it! I'm doing a Shimelle class where you document your year in one album, so this is January I'm trying to put together, a kind of collage of the month. Since I don't get out all that much (all together now, say 'aahhh') there didn't seem to be a whole lot to record, but when you actually look for it there is! We are supposed to keep an envelope of stuff like receipts etc for the month, but I kept forgetting ....

Also forgot to do the swinging around part to reveal more of the room, in accordance with HRH Dunnit's instructions, so yer tis ...

This is the bay window where I craft 75% of the time, just not in the deep midwinter because it's frigging freezing! Dec/Jan/Feb I decamp to the table in the middle of the room, nearer the heater. As you can see I tend to just dump stuff over there at this time of year ... and yes I do know I'm dead lucky (hypothermia excluded) to have all this space, and I do share it with lots of people!!

Anyway, will be back later to admire other desks, but if you want to see some more, get on over to Julia's place! I'm off out to buy myself some SMALLER trousers, because my other ones are all baggy!!

Documenting the everyday - amazing how much does go on, huh! Sorry about your bruising...I have alot of sympathy with you over the circumstances! Your desk certainly puts you in the 'Works neatly' section of WOYWWers!

Ohhh Rosie - I had a day like that yesterday - I was having a clear out of the utility room, and somehow dropped a couple of trays edges down on my poor foot - oh how my toes hurt, my whimpering was enough to bring hubby (who was working from home) racing down the stairs to see if I was ok. Hope your bruise gets better soon - get some arnica cream to put on it if you can.

You did make me chuckle by calling me a tidy worker - you've forgotten the mess my desk is generally in when I do the WOTWW thing, methinks! hehehe

Oh what a wonderful space! I love how you've got it all arranged, I can imagine it's a bit chilly in the window but how lovely to sit there on warm sunny days! Hope the bruise is better.
