It's Wednesday already so time for another peep at my workspace. If you are new to this weekly snoop, pop over to Julia's blog at Stamping Ground and you can see all the links to everyone's desk. Then you can spend a nice evening hopping around the planet looking at what we are all up to!! Fun!!
Have to say my workdesk has been rather boring of late - all work and no play is making this girl rather dull. But not so dull when the pay hits my bank account - then it all seems worthwhile!!
Sadly my neighbour's wife died suddenly a couple of weeks ago and I have been trying to support him. He is 91 and such an interesting man. He was involved in the D-Day landings and many other wartime battles and we have had many interesting conversations about the war and loads of other topics over cups of tea and coffee and if I'm lucky, a "ginger doodle" on the side (a scrummy biscuit which he makes himself!). It makes me sad that I never spent more time with him when his wife was alive. She had alzheimers and so was not great company for him although he was absolutely devoted to her and they had been together for 70 years. We have always had little chats over the fence but I could have got to know him better and enjoyed what we have now a lot sooner and helped to prevent times of loneliness for him.
Anyway, on to the desk ...
I have been completing a scrapbook page about my youngest son. Well, despite being a triplet he is still the youngest by 1 minute!! I was supplied with a kit (can't say too much about it as it's due for publication next month) which I had a free rein to use how I liked. I made two pages for the magazine and let them select the one they wanted. This one was sent back to I'm free to put it online. I did a bit more fiddling with it, adding a bit more painty bits so later on I will put a post online showing the details.
Have a great Wednesday everyone - I've got to get back to work which is hard as the sun is shining and the beach hut is tempting me!!
