WOYWW 84 - the non-descript one

Good Morning all!  And how are we this fine day?  Tired?  Happy?  Bored?  Fed Up?

Likewise....

This is the worst week of January, methinks.  Only in my case it's tempered by the fact that my company pays us on the 15th - which this month will be the 14th cos the 15th is a Saturday.  Gives one something to look forward to! 

It's also a week where I feel suspended in mid air.  Coiled like a gazelle ready to spring into action.  In the distance I hear the ghostly chants of "He's behind you" and "Oh no it isn't" as we're almost at the panto.   Last night a photographer arrived from the New Forest Journal and I managed to get this somewhat humourous shot of Tink and Hook together:



The proximity to the main panto event should hopefully go some way to explaining why my desk looks like this:



Fairly bare, just a cross stitch piece on that I'm working on for the mo.  I should add at this point that I'm not just a stamper - I do loads of other crafts too (so many hobbies, so little time!) and every year I try to make an ornament for the Christmas tree.  I have three other charmed stockings on my tree, so I bit the bullet, ordered the remaining three just before Christmas, and now have some small projects to undertake before next year.  No rush!

In case you're wondering why I'm blathering on about my desk, every week there is a phenomenon, yes, truly a phenomenon (heheheh managed to get big word in twice!) known as What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Go and pay Julia a visit here to find out more.

I haz to dash............. see you on the bloghop!

Hope the panto goes well, and you get to do some more cross stitch!

Doone said...

what do you mean you are not a stamper - you cannot be totally mad unless you is a Stampeur.

I quite like January it feels less depressing than November when we have a whole long dark time to get through. And i love it that my snowdrops appear.

BTW you are a mad liar I can see from your slider show that You Do Stamp or else you are showing off someome elses work and claiming it as your own?

Panto explains the desk. But, what role do you play in the panto ... tinks, hook, photographer, stage manager, producer, driver, cleaner or proud parent? Just curious.

I must get my cross stitch going again, that is after I finish knitting the shawl for the new grandchild. I also like mixing up my crafts, stops me from getting bored with one. There are loads mor things I want to try, but there are not enough hours.

It's so annoying when time gets in the way of craft.

What a small world! I did a search for the panto, came across your blog & discovered your desk looks very like mine lol - I made a big effort to clear some space on it last week! Having read back through your entries, I realise we sat together at the fundraising party, our daughters chatting together. Enjoy the production, hope you have fab audiences xx
