What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 316

Hurrah, it's a holiday desk! I'm doing some work, just nothing very crafty....These are the glass light shades off the bedroom ceiling fans. I washed 'em. These and the fan blades are real dust magnets, so when we get here, we try to do the sort of deep cleany bits and maintenance bits that need doing. It gives us a reason to get up. And you need that on the first day of a holiday don't you! All is drying fast...our second drink of the day is not cooling much in the direct sun and Mr Dunnit is talking about beaches and cool winds. I'm guessing that we've done today's chores!
Now don't be jealous; instead, show us all what you're doing whilst I'm not even making excuses for idleness.
Put WOYWW in your post title, link here and visit each other. It's nice. I promise you won't need sunglasses to protect your eyes from dazzling whites in the sun next week!

I wonder if anyone vacationing here would do that for me. Mine are in need.
Enjoy a great time.

Neet said...

Not jealous at all, I have just woken up, there is no sunshine outside, bet it rains again and I bet we have to put the heating on, I have the spare room to sort now my friend has gone washing to do, cleaning to do - so no, I am not jealous. Oh, and I can fib when I want to.
Hugs, Neet xx

misteejay said...

So the chores are out of the way - enjoy your hols. I'm looking at that lovely sunshine in your photo. Seems as if the weather has done an about turn here since the lonest day on Saturday - far too much cloud and drizzle for my liking.

Annie said...

You arrive at your holiday home and the first thing you do is wash the lamp shades?????? I hope Sam doesn't tell anyone about the layer of dush she could see here when she came this week. :-) :-) Have a great holiday my friend......and dont find too much housework to do :-)

Sounds blissful. I think I could cope with a bit of housework if there was the bonus of beaches and cool sea breezes afterwards. Have a wonderful holiday.

Chores on holiday ?
A womans work is never done lol
Glorious sunshine here on the sunny south coast so I am not overly jealous. Well ok maybe a tad but at least it's sunny.
Enjoy yourself Julia and I look forward to seeing lots of piccies. :) #27

Angela Radford said...

Hi Julia, I guess whilst doing the house chores you have time to think about where to go during your holiday as I am sure you wont spend it all doing the housework. Have a good rest and please take pics. We are off to the Lincolnshire show today so no crafting till later. Happy woyww, Angela x 30

I am not jealous at all. I would far rather shampoo the hall carpet. I tell fibs too. anyone fancy taking that job over for me. I always have to get the instruction book out to remind myself which part of which tank to put the solutions and the water. Have a wonderful holiday and make sure there are no nasty hospital trips this time. Looking forward to the Crop in October. Just need to book my B&B (must ask for a mini breakfast otherwise I will not be able to eat Jan's lovely food) and book the dogs into kennels. xxx Maggie #8

Barb said...

I've decided to take the plunge today and link up with you for the first time many visits looking at others work spaces. I'm very excited to be taking part.

It's a really fun idea. I love seeing what other crafters are up to.

Sue said...

Hope you get the chores done, so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. Sue

Nannie4 said...

Yup --- been there, done that, Julia. ;) The HH is going back to the cottage today to finish the opening up process. We have not been there to just enjoy as of yet, but soon.... Enjoy your holiday!

RosA said...

I'm not keen on chores at home, let alone on holidays! Hope you get some nice relaxing time there :)

Lisca Meijer said...

Cleaning on your holiday? Surely that's not what holidays are about. Your husband is right whispering the right words in your ear...
Have a great week and I hope lots of good weather,
Lisca

Sandy Leigh said...

I like how Mr. Dunnit thinks! I'm like you though--I feel like I can get on with my day when that stuff is done. And this is reminding me to clean my bedroom ceiling fan! I am much more creative in a clean house. Hugs! Sandy Leigh

The beach sounds like fun, so enjoy it!

Ohhh Snap said...

Is that a glass fan blade at the bottom? Don't you love it when all the days to-do can be done by the second cuppa? : D. Looks like you are having a splendid vacation (knock wood)! And ditto on what Christine said (plus I don't need to put them in a scrapbook lol) #47

Bernice said...

Ohh - lucky you - it has just started to rain here :-( Enjoy your trip and don't do too many chores!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Such great lighting on your desk today. It looks quite relaxing even though you are cleaning household things. Enjoy! Judy #50

Lizzie said...

Awww... from those shadows and the strong light, I'm guessing you are definitely not in UK! My guess is Spain... Or Majorca! I hope you have a lovely holiday.
My desk is just messy this week, though there are some progress shots of last time's leather book covers.

April Story said...

Too late! I'm jealous. But I shared my desk too. :-)

Doing chores while on holiday doesn't sound like much of a holiday. But since I'm a neat freak, I applaud you for taking care of those dust magnets. They really ARE, aren't they? Hope you're enjoying the rest of your holiday. Looking for photos, of course.
