Well we have been enjoying the last few days of the holidays here with treat outings. I collected Alex from my parents at a service station near Birmingham on Saturday and we went to Dinosaur Valley at Twycross Zoo on the way back (more photos on Friday, but this is a favourite).
Yesterday was the last day before going back to school so we went to Gullivers Kingdom at Matlock Spa where we went on pretty much every ride (I felt rather sick after the pirate ship, but Alex went on three times!).
However, as you have probably come from Julia's you didn't come here to see what we have been up to but rather my desk so here is my entry for this week's WOYWW. It is looking a little tidier this week, but there has been some actual crafting as well! To the left you can see my smash book with the latest pages open and resting on it is the church magazine, which contains a photo of me and a friend and will feature on one of my next smash pages. Most of the massive pile of stamps that have been sitting around since our holiday at the end of July have now been put away with only three remaining and for some reason a skeleton leaf - I have no idea what that is doing there! As usual there is my trusty mug of tea, a mass of cables from my laptop and my phone.
Here is one of the pages from my smash book...a double page spread of the time my parents came to stay with us for a weekend.
The next page is one of some soft toys that an extremely lovely (and somewhat mad) on-line friend sent me and who live on the back of my desk (except Headstarterpus who was adopted by Alex) - can you spot them in the photo of my desk?!
Finally this is a layout of Alex's first zorbing adventure which uses the actual words on the page itself and needed no embellishments. That is all from me for now...more on Friday!
