What 'Was' on my Work Desk on Wednesday!

I wasn’t planning on posting but I really have to share with you what was on my work desk on Wednesday.

As you can see, my table has become a dumping ground over the past weeks and apart from the very photogenic BoJangles, who’s hogging the picture you can just see the contents of a box that the postie had just brought.

Look on in envy girlies because I’m now the proud owner of a beautiful ‘Dumfled’ magnet clip made by the crafty sisters Wipso and Twiglet.
It was my prize for coming up with a suggestion or two for the Wedding Shelf of their on line shop...........just look at all this gorgeousness!

There was also some ‘Annie Magic’ in the parcel too, in the form of a cute little Comfort Bear, intended to help me through what is turning out to be the toughest time for my family but enough said about that.

Anyway, my main reason for posting was to thank Annie and Jo for the flower clip, teddy and the most beautiful card I’ve ever seen. I’m going to get a little frame to put it in.

Thanks girls!

There's nothing on my Work Desk this Wednesday!

You’ll have already noticed if you’ve checked out my blog over the last few weeks that I’ve not been updating it. This has been mainly due to the fact that I’ve not been crafting, well very little anyway.

I’m being plagued by migraines caused by eye strain so crafting has been kept to only things that are really necessary and I’ve even stepped down from the daring Cardmakers design team for a while to ease the strain.
I’m really not sure at all when I’ll be able to get to it again but I’m hoping that my new vari focal glasses when they eventually arrive will go some way to helping the situating.

So for now there’ll be no photos of my work desk because there’s nothing going on there but I’ll still be round to check out what everyone else is up to, even if I don’t comment on everyone’s.
Can’t believe how may of you are joining in now and it takes nearly all week to get round everyone.

Also added to the stress of the above, my 86 year old dad was rushed to A & E on Saturday with a suspected blocked bowel and is still in hospital. He’s in so much pain, which they don’t seem to be able to control and I hate seeing him like that, it makes you feel so helpless.

Can’t say I’m impressed with his treatment so far either.
It seems that everything shuts down over the bank holiday weekend so dad’s still waiting for a CT scan so they can find out exactly what’s going on. First they told me it would be done on Tuesday and then they changed their mind and said Monday. Then it was back to Tuesday again and when I went to see him yesterday afternoon he said they had cancelled it again because of an emergency and it’s now supposed to be being done this morning. Not only that, you can’t find anyone to tell you what’s going on, so it’s a sorry state of affair if you ask me.

Well, I’m off out to do a quick spot of shopping now and then it’s up to the hospital but I’ll be back later if I get time to check out your desks. And just because I’m not join in this week it doesn’t mean you can’t so get on over to Julia’s Blog and join in the fun.

Have a good week
