WOYWW 148 - back to normality!

Welcome  back to WOYWW - the Wednesday wander through the realms of the neat, the not so neat, and the downright untidy! 

My desk this week is back to its usual untidy state - what you witness below is the aftermath of an "ohmyGodit'sKaren'sbirthdayonFriday" and "Ihaven'tmadeheracardanditneedstogointotheposttomorrow" session.  We've all had one of those, I'm sure!


Close up of the card (Karen doesn't do PCs full stop, let alone bloghop!) - image is one of the Li'l Grumpies by Smeared Ink.  I love them.  They're so downright....grumpy.  With phrases like "suck it up" and "bite me", could they be anything else?  I made my own insert - it reads "live a little, I dare ya".  As a cancer survivor, Karen will appreciate the sentiment, and her rock chick heart will love the Grumpie.  Hehehe.




A swift glance behind us on the bed reveals the death-throes of a prepping-for-a-crop flurry.  Yup, crop this month is on Saturday, and having almost literally bumped into Laura (airingcupboardstamping) in Salisbury BHS last Sat, I said I'd go, so I'm going.  Wish me luck in my prepping!



See you somewhere in a comments box near you - after the Blogger issues this week, I didn't managed to get round many folks!

i actually bought birthday cards this year...so there... i also had the unfortunate opportunity to point someone to the Willow Foundation, very recently

then thought,

blimmin heck, they only go up to 40 years of age, and they ( i quote) use the age discrimination because ' it's the age bracket where you really should be out there enjoying life'

I swear to God from now on I'm taking ten years off my age when asked,

and I am not stopping living until the moment I gasp in my last breath....

hence no time to tidy... or put up with stroppy offspring for whose clothes one usually pays (they get very short shrift if they are not suitably appreciative of my purse and presence...)

I really must try to get to one of your and Julia's craft fests....now that Would be Living...and Boy could we practice Grumpy 'Lying About Our Age' but Yes I am Old because I'm a female over twenty, Woman Strop Techniques....

Hey I wrote an essay

I've just had one of those sessions with my Easter cards...they've got to go 12,000 miles in 2 days! Oops!
I think the Grumpy is great. Sometimes it's so refreshing seeing a card that's different.
It sounds like your going to be busy so I better let you get on...
Have a great Easter weekend ~ Enjoy :D

Lovin' that Grumpie. Sums me up at the moment. I do like the top shot of your desk with the light illuminating the middle section. Clever.
Sorry I am so late, things got in the way. Thanks for sharing, stopping by me and putting your number (so appreciated.) Happy Easter - Hugs, Neet #10 xx

Sam said...

That card is brilliant and I am sure Karen will love it! I know what you are saying about crop packing. I have one tomorrow and I haven't packed a thing yet!!! I have been a good girl playing in the dirt today!! 2 rows of tatties dug in, should have been 3 but 3 out of 10 of the spuds were mouldy so have to take them back on the way to the crop which I haven't yet packed for!! Eeeeek!!

Thanks (I think) for introducing me to a new set of stamps!:) You are right, they are perfect for any rock chick!( or chap) Happy WOYWW, Shaz #96

Shazsilverwolf said...

Follow on to my comment- I have just been to Smeared Ink. Morti- what have you done? Do you have any idea how much money I will spend there now? There is not a stamp I don't need! Honestly.You are such a bad influence. I'm so lucky to have good friends like you,LOL. Shaz xxx
