WOYWW 138 - all over bar the.....no....wait.....

Well, hello hello HELLO!

Welcome to another weekly round of WOYWW.  I'm still having trouble with posting comments as on some blogs I only seem to be able to comment at home, so it may take me a while to visit some of you!

If you haven't got a clue what I'm on about go HERE for all the deets, and the fabulous Mrs Dunnit will let you have a snoop about....

So, what goeth on in the world of Morti, eh?

Not much.  Too tired for much!  We've all been hit by a bout of post-panto sickness - namely colds and chest infections.  I think that might be down to a bit too much smoke from the pyros they used, but hey, what do I know?  LOL.  Nonetheless, we are bright spirited and happy.

On my desk this week we see the beginnings of a card for a colleague at work.  Having epically failed to find a large, plain Good Luck card which didn't say Leaving or Goodbye or Retirement or Exam, it befalls me to make one that says "Good Luck in Hong Kong".  See, the colleague isn't actually leaving the company, he's going to head up the Hong Kong office as they are sorely in need of someone over there who can make command decisions and take them to the next level.  Go, Dean!  And that's where I step in, as chief card maker.  Having won the card competition (by default as the only entry!) I get the poke in the ribs.  No worries.  Watch this space.  I see a golden chinese dragon coming up.


As for the next few weeks....well.....ever the suckers for punishment, PVADS held auditions the day after Panto finished, for the spring play "The Darling Buds of May".  Mr B desperately wanted to do it, auditioned, got THE main part.  Muggins here went along to support, knowing darned well it's the only way I'll get to see anything of him when he doesn't have his nose in a book.  And wound up landing a role too.  Deep joy.  So much for quiet Wednesday & Sunday evening.

But then you can't argue when your fella gets presented with THIS after the Panto at the party - for The Defining Performance.  Or rather, as they put it, they presented it to his leg, for having gone through hell for his art..... ROFL.....


In all seriousness though, it's a genuine award PVADS gives after each show they do, if they feel that something or someone has warranted it, and Mr B was one such individual who took the panto and the society to a whole new level with his performance as Long John Silver.  People were coming up to members and asking where he'd hidden his leg, and was he really one-legged etc....LOL.... Bless - I'm so proud of him.  And it wasn't without cost - two shows on the Saturdays and by half-way through the second he'd about had enough, his knee was in a lot of pain.  He soldiered through though, and seems to be ok now!

So, watch this space......... catch you all around!

Congrats to Mr Morti on his win - who is going to polish the cup I wonder. My late sister was into ADS from being at school and I remember going to see her every year for the panto (she was always principal girl) and being so proud. It's a brilliant hobby to have.

PS if your commenting opens in a new window, I usually succeed - if not, if you see this for approval I’ll consider it a Blogger miracle!

A cup - oh my, what a fab result..makes all the time investment so worthwhile; you must be really proud of him - and of course, nothing like the recognition of your peers. So, Darling Buds next, how fun! Hope you all pick up soon, no doubt it was being so busy that caused the chills and being so busy that kept it at bay till you could collapse and start cultivating it!

Karen said...

Hi there Morti,

Those letters look great on your card!

Congrats to your hubby for his trophy - well done!!! Also, a big nod to both of you for landing a part in the upcoming production.

On my blog you asked what stitch I was using on my knitting. It's seed stitch. Cast on an odd number of stitches and it's k1, p1 every row. I'm hooked on this stitch! It looks the same on both sides and really adds a nice texture to things. That's a baby blanket that I'm knitting. TWO friends are having babies - one in May and one in June so I have to get cracking!!

XO

Thank you for visiting my blog, my pen storage started life as a CD Holder from sainsburys bought when on sale and then hubby used mounting board and divided it into sections the perfect size for a handful of pens, Thank you for the tip on how to keep track of what desks i have visited, this week started at 1 and worked my way through keeping track of the number i stopped on each time, have managed all of them phew! My Son is an aspiring actor currently studying Drama at Derby Uni, (he chose Derby because of the Theatre) he wants to be a Drama teacher eventually but the acting bug has taken hold and he has already had a leading role in a small production with another one in April, i think he is brilliant but then i am biased. Kind Regards Lou x

Elizabeth said...

Well, they do say you have to suffer for your art but that's maybe taking it to the edge! Poor man ... I don't recall any one-legged men in the Darling Buds. BTW, you don't say what part you've landed ... not Ma, is it? Loved the TV series, perfick :) Look forward to seeing the dragon on that card. Have a great, restful week of recovery. Elizabeth x #45

Cathy said...

I am having a quick jog through everyone's desk as I am slightly late this week. Fab work space, looking very busy and creative. Had to life at the reason for your OH's trophy. Thanks for sharing.

Congrats to Mr B. Is he playing Pa?
Hope it all goes well for the production in the spring. I think blogger has finally pulled it s socks up and is behaving itself. Apparently they put new soft ware in for the comments that are imbedded and it didn't work.They couldn't fix and didn't tell anybody that they could get around it by changing to pop up comments(like this one is). Would have been helpful if they had. Hugs Mrs A.

BumbleVee said...

today I have a link to a site that talks about commenting on blogger.... maybe it'll help...

congrats to the sweetie.... what a job being one legged for hours...ouch....
