WOYWW 74 - at least I think it is!

Hi y'all!!!  Sorry.  Americanism.  Colonial sister-in-law.....

Well, I'm back in the land of the living, even if I'm somewhat zombiefied.  Mr Doctor prescribed a course of antibiotics and signed me off work for a further week with a "chest infection".  I'm typing this from the comfort of my desk at home.  Somewhat shocked, might I add, to see that it's 7.40am and there are ALREADY over 40 links on WOYWW.  Have to get up early these days to get in at #1!!!!

So here we are at another WOYWW - and for those who are unaware of what in the heck that is, go and visit Julia's Stamping Ground for more info.

On my desk this week we have.....


New rubber!

I still haven't done that CJ - woe is me! - but as I'm at home this week it will definitely be done today.  I've been too poorly to even think about crafting.  Anyway, the gorgeous stamps you can see come from Smeared Ink.  Some small ones on the left come from Xelacrafts.  I also won some blog candy but in my brain addled fug of memory I can't remember whose blog it was... sob.... but thank you very much to the lovely lady who sent them..... sob.....

Ok, I'm off.  Just a short blog from me this week.  I won't bore you with tales of the last fortnight, which include (but are not limited to) an hour in the dental chair followed by my crowns falling out three days later, after all the dentists are shut and 8 hours before we're due to leave(at 3am) for Blackpool. The sorry tale of me going on the Pepsi Max Big One and screaming myself completely hoarse that it was a full 10 mins before I could physically say a word....the Valhalla ride which got us so wet my Goddaughter POURED water out of her shoes.... The ensuing laryngitis.... the return visit to get my crowns put in.... Halloween where we all went out dressed up round a deserted village, only to find that all the kids were going round en masse, and we finally get to meet all our neighbours 5 months after moving in....

Nope, I'll save all those for another post - and will start the long blog hop to catch up on the doing of you guys - catch you around!

Aww, I hope you feel better soon. Being poorly sucks. Sounds like a good excuse to stay wrapped up and do some crafting.

I always get a tad confused when you write about CJ - as them's my initials!

Take care chuck,

Sounds to me like being sick is preferable to all the madness you've been through! Hope you get completely better, including the teeth! Eek! very soon. Amazingly through all this that desk is sitting neatly waiting for something else to happen... we'll watch that space!

Mad ramblings, it is indeed! What a lot for you to deal with! But at least your desk is neat and organized! I've been living in my neighborhood for 1 and a half years, and I have yet to meet my neighbors!

Lovely area to work at and I like the look of those new stamps. Hope you have been sorted out by the dentist - you sound as lucky as me with my teeth!!! Thanks for sharing your workspace. Best wishes, Kym xxx (WOYWW No 36)

Paula Gale said...

OMG Morti - you poor thing... i can absoloutely sympathise with the chest infection thing as i've suffered with them all my life :O( a couple of things were worse for setting them off and that it drinking out of glasses in a pub, and shouting or singing really loud - so you shouting while on that ride could have been the start of yours!!! I find that plenty of sleep sees mine get better quicker.

Wow - those sheets of stamps are massive on your desk - just hope you feel better enough to play with them soon.

Take care

Paula x x x

Sherry said...

Your new stamps look lush! Your desk looks very idustrious (if that's the right word!) Hope your chest infection has gone - or is going and that you're enjoying your time resting up - sounds as though you needed it!

Thanks for stopping by my workdesk earlier x

Sounds like you've been having it rough, doctors and dentists, that's a years worth of both!!!!! Hope you are feeling much better very soon.
What a gorgeous desk, lots of lovely things to nosey at. Your stamps look great and I like the look of all those pens.
Thanks so much for your sticky thoughts. I think you may be right!!!

Leo said...

Oo loads of lovely stamps to play with there. Sounds like you need some quiet crafty time to recover!
:) xx Leo

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Sounds like a week of ups and downs, much like a water ride! Sounds like you needed the week off to recoup. You either have to get up early or stay up late to be number 1. But, it seems this number 1 is really coming in number last! Happy belated WOYWW.

Forgot to mention, I love the Poe stamps.

Carrie said...

What a fabulously interesting work desk....I love those images and your pen collection makes me soooo jealous. Thanks for popping by and visiting my workspace xxx

Sunshine Girl said...

This is a very late WOYWW comment from me! glad to hear you are feeling better now - I just had to go and have my teeth cleaned last week and that was bad enough so I hope you are ok after all the dental work now! It was me that sent you the blog candy - glad you liked it and thanks for commenting on my blog last week.

Peggy L said...

Morti!

wow what a lovely desk! thanks for stopping by my blog.

I owned an online store, so I ordered the copic storage directly from wholesale.. but if you are in the States, I believe a place called oozak.com carries them.

hope that helps!
have a great day!

Peggy

Anneliese said...
