(Firstly thank you for all the lovely comments last week - I was so pleased and surprised. I replied to all I could by Wednesday evening. We then went to my son's home , in Yorkshire until Sunday - I cannot access unpublished comments for some reason via my phone so couldn't reply - I am so sorry - I don't usually join in if I know I can't visit people who visit me - doesn't seem fair - but I'd expected to be able to :-( I will try to do better this week )
It's Wednesday again!!! Gosh that came round even more quickly than usual.
So it's time for WOYWW - and this week it's a very special one!!! The Seventh Anniversary of this wonderful, weekly sharing of desks around the world. Want to know more, join in the fun then go to the lovely Julia's Blog where you can learn more. For the next few weeks WOYWW is being hosted by the lovely LLJ ( Jan) - all is explained on Julia's Blog.
Sadly I'm not able to join in with the ATC swap but look forward to seeing them all as they are shared, have fun everyone!!!
I managed to start paper crafting after a bit of a break as I have been busy ( see last week if you are interested! As I'm due to do some crafting with five ladies on Saturday I though I'd better get my act together!! It's somehow proved difficult, I didn't seem to have the ideas or energy. It would seem I may have a cold/cough so that might explain it. :-(
My desk/dining table
I also spread out to the sideboard - as usual - the card/3D item are for Saturday - still not finished though and there's another that I'm not happy with so still messing with it.
I will visit everyone who visits me -I promise, this week and all ending with same number - that caused me confusion last week. I started as number 24 on the list but hadn't checked later and I went to number 23 so that messed up my system as well!!!
To finish - as I said earlier we went up to Yorkshire to visit our eldest son and family.
Thursday evening we had dinner with Matthew and Carolynn ( boys had eaten earlier) and caught up with each others news.
We also did a spot of babysitting :-) Our D.I.L. went for a Spa day on the Friday and stayed at her friend's on the Friday evening and our son went off to London on Friday afternoon to catch up with friends he knew from his Uni days.
Matthew treated us to lunch on Friday- it was good to chat and lunch was delicious and then DH took him to the station to get his train to Huddersfield and I think from there to Leeds and on to London.
Carolynn returned early on Saturday morning and took Sam to his cricket tournament - which his team won :-) We had a quick lunch on her return and then all set off to Wakefield to watch the Wizard of OZ - it was a musical production by an amateur society but it was excellent. Afterwards we went to a pub for tea.
On Sunday Harry, eldest grandson went to football practise while DH. Caro, Sam and I just chilled out - DH and I played a game of table tennis with Sam.
Harry all ready to go off to football practise,
After lunch it was time to start back home. Had a good journey, no hold ups so only took a couple of hours. Sad to leave though look forward to catching up with younger son and family this week.
