25 weeks ago, I last posted on my blog... nearly half a year without "What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday"
There's always an excuse... and I have a few lined up - but basically, I'm busy (running around in circles!)
So, today I am back for another WOYWW hosted as always by the amazingingly well-travelled Ms Dunnit over at the Stamping Ground.
So... my desk...
I've recently had to have a HUGE tidy in the craft-room, so my desk (and room) are almost tidy now :) The tidying had to be completed as we are waiting for the builders to arrive here, when utter chaos will ensue and all semblance of normal living will be annihilated.
I'm making more boxes for my Etsy store, have just finished a quickie-make of the little curio cabinet, have a little basket with smaller bottles in... and I have had to repair a green-man wall plaque I made recently. My grandbabies decided to try and pick some leaves from him :(
He's quite a jolly looking fellow :)
I've been playing with left-over clay lately too - I decided to 'use it or lose it'... and upcycled some bottles and a jar:
The boxes in the background there are more shop stuff... and the wooden diffuser fills my little room with a lemon scent to keep me going and creating lol
The curio-type cabinet is pretty neat, I thought :)
The vaseline on the desk is not for crafting... it's for my poor wee doggy. I have to oil up his nose regularly throughout the day as he has a nose infection! He has cost us a small fortune in vets bills of late - infected paws, bits up his nose, weepy eye, smelly bottom lol. Still, I guess he's worth it :)
Sadly, other news is not as fun. My 'other mummy' (mum-in-law) has recently been diagnosed with vascular dementia, and we (as a family) are trying to arrange our lives around her needs and care right now. Hopefully, after the builders are finished we can start getting quotes on prices to build an extension so she can come and live with us. It'll be hard and exhausting... but it's what you do for those we love isn't it?!
My poor mum had a cataract operation two weeks ago that went disastrously wrong, and she has been rushed back into hospital for corrective surgery to save her sight. She's also had to start using hearing aids now too...
As for me... well it's never good news lol - but I'm too busy to worry about myself right now. Maybe next week :D
I do hope everyone has a fantastic Wednesday. I'm looking forward to spending some time catching up with desks and people here.
Have a great week everyone!
Nearly forgot... I am number 23 this week :)
