WOYWW 637 (I think!)

 Hello and Welcome back to my blog for another edition of What's on your Workdesk Wednesday, the lovely blog hop hosted by Julia.

This is my desk as it was yesterday evening, various washi stickers, my bullet journal in which I write my timetable for the day, my to do list and then record the events of the day and exercise taken in the evening. Each page has a similar layout and I add just a few stickers for interest and colour.

I have done some other crafting this week and have mostly caught my main little journal (the one where I put photos in) up to date.... I am just a week behind now which is pretty good going.  These are the latest pages so you can see how far behind I was.

Some of you will have realised that I was missing last week. This is because I went on an mini-adventure with Alex - a 2 day jaunt to London to see Everybody's Talking About Jamie. The show was incredible, and both of us really got into it, cheering certain speeches and all the songs and gave it a standing ovation at the end. I thoroughly recommend going to see it if you get the chance. We packed a lot into our trip to London including seeing the London Dungeon, going on the London Eye, seeing the Holocaust exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, clambering round HMS Belfast for 2.5 hours, eating at Borough Market, and shopping. 

I mentioned last week that Alex had recently got back into Warhammer - well we discovered that there is a Warhammer World in Nottingham, so we took Tim with us (he played Warhammer as a teenager) and spent a happy morning exploring all the amazing dioramas and painting. That's all from me for now.  Take care and keep safe.

With love & God Bless,

I’m so pleased you’ve had a good time away, you deserve it after all the house stuff recently! You certainly packed a lot in, I loved Borough market and have never seen so much cheese in all my life! The boys look happy at Warhammer World, I didn’t know it existed, shall have to tell Son No 1! My new paints are Daniel Smith watercolours from Jackson Arts online, they are very different to my old ones, much more highly pigmented so I’m getting used to them slowly!

What lovely photos of your days in London. Reminds me of a trip I once took when a boy at school won a nationwide competition and we had to go to the Houses of Parliament for the presentation. I thought I was treating him to a trip around to see various sites but apparently he found it boring. Kids!
Glad your Alex is not the same and he enjoyed himself.
Not a clue what Warhammer is - but then I am too old to know these things and absent from grand children.
Enjoy your week and catch up on the crafting.
Blessings, Neet 11 xx

I'm well impressed that you keep you Bullet journal up to date. Looks like you've been having a good time. We're thinking that we may go to the coast when the children go back to school and things quiet down as we need to be so careful because of mum but I sure missed the skiing this year and just hope we'll still be fit enough to do it when things improve. Have a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x14x

Annie said...

I’m running late doing my visits but at least I’m here this week.
I love the journal pages and what a wonderful time you had in London.

Marit said...

wowzah, the two of you packed a whole lot of activities in just a few days London... love the photos! I also love the journal pages, I have diaries (only written) from the time I was 10 until I was about 28 or so... it's a treasure to be able to read back (and see! I wish I included photos back then!) Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday, enjoy your week/weekend dear! Love from Holland. Marit #5

Take care

Caro, what fun!! You and your son always seem to have a blast together! My baby girl and I seem to have a similar relationship!! Love all the photos and the "high in the sky" photo looks a little nerve-racking! LOLOL What a treat that you guys went to the musical as well. How cool that he actually wanted to go see a musical!!! You know, guys and the whole "cool" factor! LOLOL I always love to see your journals and just in awe that you are able to fill each day up with so much! I don't do ANYTHING that interesting on a daily basis, so that would never go over for me! LOLOL Have a great rest of your week and sorry I am visiting late this week! :) Felicia #26

You really have made the most of two days away, at that pace I’d have had to have a week to recover. Not heard of that show, but am about to go and acquaint myself! Lovely photos of Alex and his Dad outside the war hammer place, another amazing place. I know you may think you’re behind with the journaling, but really, you have to live a life worth journaling about, and I think that’s the priority!

Mary Anne said...

You totally deserved your mini break! love the photos. I miss living in London and going to live theatre all the time. Amazing you managed to keep up wit your journal even so! And funny, I was just thinking "Did I miss her last week? I don't recall..." and then read you DID miss. Phew. I thought it was me LOL!

Happy WOYWW late again

So glad you had such a fun time in London, Caro. Alex looks as if he's really enjoying himself! What a lot of adventures you had. You are certainly very diligent, keeping up with your journal - I'm afraid I'd lack the discipline for that.

I'm very late getting round this week as it's been an extremely busy time lately.

Happy belated WOYWW and God bless,
