WOYWW 188 - return of the Morti

Hello strangers!  Who am I kidding - I'm the strangest one around... as long as you don't look too closely at the rest of my crowd "to everyone else we're a normal family".  LOL  Well, I'm back after my break from WOYWW and my recuperation is still in full swing but this is the first week I've really felt like joining in.  That's if the dogs give me five minutes peace - they know someone is in the house and they do NOT like being left alone in those circumstances.  Every hour....woof woof woof woof woof.... sheesh.  Worse than kids... Anyhooo - wanted to say A BIG THANK YOU to everyone for your kind well-wishes, and I'm sorry I've not been by your blogs to say thank you personally.....

So, why are we here?  Oh yes - back to the old WOYWW.  If you've happened upon my blogginess by accident and are wondering what on earth I'm on about, go HERE and read Queen Dunnit's post, and then if you've a mind to - join in!

Soooooooo - my desk this week.....



Scary, isn't it?

Very messy and untidy.  You wouldn't think that I'd had not just one but TWO different visitors staying!  Mum went to my brother's for New Year, and Mr B then took her home *why brother couldn't do it, I don't know, but that's normal* to London.  The day after Mum went, my God-daughter came down from Cheshire for a couple of days but only stayed overnight because she was "homesick" (at 15? Ohhhhhkaaaaayyyyy, anything she says!) Praise where it's due though - it was her first solo journey on public transport...!

I'm digressing aren't I?

SOWWY.....

The desk, Morti, the desk!

Ok, the reason for the muddle is that said God-daughter had a go at making her first card and in the flurry to get her back home next day, we didn't tidy up.  I will rectify that later.

I have been a bit busy creatively but there's not much to show here.  I've made a couple more crochet squares, completed several weeks of Project Life (but the photos are waiting for processing, home printing just ain't cutting the mustard) as well as made a start on 2013 (I WILL get caught up on last year's by the end of this month) AND I finished the gothic tassel on Christmas Eve......


And just to finish, I thought I'd throw in a random Christmas tree shot, just for the heck of it.  Because it was Christmas, and I didn't do it before...


Hope to see you on the 'hop!

Happy WOYWW. I understand why your desk is untidy if a 15 year old has been let near it! Love the tree - and your sofa looks seriously cosy! Ali x #40

Hurrah!!!! Great to see you back Morti!! Glad to hear you are on the road to recovery too. Love your 'danglies' and so pleased to know your mojo is in full working order. Don't talk to me about teenagers... frankly there are times when a pack of dogs would be preferable! Here's hoping you have a wonderful year ahead in 2013. Hugs, Jenny x #35

Looks and sounds like you need a time of recuperation all over again! Hectic life but don't forget you've not long had an operation. Take it easy! Your desk really isn't bad at all, all things considered and it can wait!
Lots of love for a craft 2013

You make me smile! Though I did mis-read if the 'dogs' leave you alone for 'drugs' - must be something to do with your recovery update! sorry.... Love your tassel, too. Hope you have a good week. Helen, 7

What a brilliant post. I laughed out loud at your reference to your brother. Funny I talk about my sister in the same tone, thank goodness I'm not the only one!!!!

Welcome back! You were missed, and I am glad to hear (read) that you are definately on the mend. You sound like your old self already. Love the tassle and the desk does not look scary at all, in fact, I would love to come for a play date.
