WOYWW #166 - Now you see me…….Now you don’t!
That’s exactly what it’s been like for me over the last few weeks. One week I manage to hop around the desks of the world for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday, and the next week I don’t make it, as happened last week, but I guess that’s the way it goes sometimes.
An added distraction to my crafting time of late has been the coverage of the Olympics and I’m ashamed to say that I’ve spent way too much time in front of the TV cheering on team GB, but haven’t they done well!
The support for the athletes has been phenomenal. Add to that the nail biting finishes we’ve witnessed, the elation of the winners and the total devastation felt by those who didn’t achieve what they had hoped for, it’s been such an emotional rollercoaster.
I’m so proud of our team because they have most definitely put the ‘Great’ back into Britain and it’s not over yet, we still have four more days and the Paralympics as well……..I can’t wait!
So, as I said, I’ve been distracted a lot this week so there’s not very much to show you on my desk except for the usual mess that I seem to always work in.
It’s scary to think that my brother reaches retirement age in October and it’s starting to hit home that we are the ‘older’ generation, now that my mum and dad are gone and most of my aunts and uncles too.
We are planning a little family get together and I’ve been making a few invitations for him to take in to his work mates, so it was out with the old Promarkers and a digi stamp that came from Mo’s Digtial Pencil, my favourite digital stamp shop.
I promise you that the writing on them isn’t all smudged as it appears in the picture. I had to take precautions because I as much as I would have loved for you to all turn up on the day to join us I don’t think my brother’s house would hold everybody, Lol.
Oh, and before I go, can I just thank Trish again.
I am the very lucky winner of the fab candy that she offered last month
which you can see Here Thanks again Trish.
So, that’s it for another week.
I’ll be calling in later to see what you’re all up to, so get the kettle on……It’s Black Coffee, No sugar for me!
