How can it be Wednesday again? Thank you to all of you who commented on my blog last week - hope I get round to more of you this week!

 Anyway I am linking to the Stamping Ground!

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #717

No Aquarobics class this week as I am staying at my son Matty's to help with the girls while he is busy with work.

SO my desk today is the dining table!

I am putting together a Wanderlust spread based on a workshop by Carolyn Dube. I am colouring some black and white photos with pastels.

I am at the stage of cutting words from book paper to add some descriptions.

The week has not gone quite so smoothly as usual as Isabell (10) developed appendicitis - she had to have her appendix out on Monday afternoon which meant a lot of time at the hospital. However all's good...

There was just an echidna in the garden - but he had hidden before I could get a photo!

My son got this photo - he's hiding in a pot!

Wishing you a happy week...

Happy  WOYWW!
