Good morning from an EXCITED little old me! Todays the day and I having great trouble contain ing my excitement, well I'll just have to for about another ten hours, gosh that's nearly the day over! My Son Alan is going to surprise me, well I say that as he thinks I don't know but he told me a couple of months ago and has forgotton he had (some of my forgetfullness must off rubbed off). Home after nearly  eighteen months living in Australia. Everybodies coming for dinner and preparing his favourite, probably don't go together but who cares. Macaroni last minute re- think, Chicken Olives (decided it's less work for me, considering I'm feeding seven adults and two kids) and Lemon Meringue Pie, all those calories, must make sure there's not much left for me!

Don't miss the plane on the last lap up North!

Really a floor cupboard (daren't take up any more of the Sunroom floor space) but looks like it's going to stay up there, didn't take long to find stash to hide away out of sight! Top row some of my stamps!! A tiny sewing machine, yet to be used, second row Cricut boxes and box of 6x6 papers and bottom row my underused Cricut. Hope this is about to change. On the very top my adorable grandkids.

Had a tidy up yesterday, seems to be an ongoing process

Started colouring these at Saturdays class with Debbi and as you can see not any further on. So much other things getting in the way at the mo. Wedding Invites just about there with them so a nosey is on the cards once there completed. My favourite coffee cup to the right and my new free reading glasses, hopefully will be firmly on my nose when crafting now instead of hidden under all the mess I create!

That's it from me this week, pop over by Julia's Stamping Ground if you want to see what crafter's around the globe are up to on Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday! Have a great Wednesday.

oh yes, that's tidiness! I can now pretend to be tidy and only show that bit now, which is nice. I think the idea is to keep me from crafting all over the house! hope you have a great time, or have had it, as I'm sooo late getting here! Happy WOYWW!!

Tidying up is a fact of life for most of us, who have far too much stuff to pack away all the time. You seem to be very good at it though. You seem to have a beautiful view outside too. Is that inspiration or distraction?
