Hi there - I'd love to say my desk has been a veritable hive of activity this week - but sadly life keeps getting in the way !
My poor Art Journal thinks I have emigrated & left it behind, I have neglected so long !!
And I have a pile of the cookery books & magazines I brought back from Cape Town also waiting patiently for some attention !
Saturday, I spent a fun afternoon with my friend Lynda lurking in Hobbycraft & our local Wyevale garden centre - whilst the men went to footie - & we all got back together & tucked into a curry afterwards !
Lynda & I were both bemoaning the fact that after the "18 month winter" we have had here in Wales - summer 2012 never really happened & it was the wettest in a hundred years - we can't even set foot in our gardens due to the bog like state of the soil - and it never stops raining long enough for us to do anything out there anyway !!
I have weeds galore & am desperate for a decent day of weather at a weekend to get tidying up & weeding !!
I also helped Lynda get her new blog "Sparks of Art" on the go - so I'm hoping she'll join us on WOYWW soon - do go & visit her & make her welcome as a newbie in blogland! http://beazleyart.blogspot.co.uk
Sunday was, sadly, less fun & lost to a mountain of ironing !! After 4 & 1/2 hours ploughing through sheets, shirts, tops & PJ's - I didn't have a creative bone left in my body to face anything crafty !!
So the only action on the desk this week is the Valentine's card I have made for my lovely husband - my best friend & Valentine !
And poised for action on my chair is the new scrapbook album I bought Saturday - intended for when I get going on scrapping my Africa pictures - so far I haven't even got them printed out !!
And as I am writing this on Tuesday night to link up to WOYWW tomorrow - we have just chomped through a yummy pile of pancakes !
Rich is the designated pancake maker in this household - due to his far superior rolling round the pan & flipping skills !!
I am the lowly sugar sprinkler & lemon squeezer !!
We stand in the kitchen & eat them fresh from the pan as he makes them !! Well it is only once a year !!
Mind you I am just trying to figure out where the time went since we did the same last year - as I said to my friend Jan in Spain this evening, the past year has simply whizzed by in a blur !!
Anyway better say ta-ta for now & looking forward to seeing your desks this week !
Take care, Ali x
