What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 363

Its a week before the seventh anniversary; we will be doing the ATC thing again. If you can join in, instructions are here.
In the worst traditions of timing, I am away on holiday for this and next Wednesday, 364.  I'll join in at some stage, but until we're there, I have no idea about internet and that is key, huh! Well, that and the electricity, but I'm hoping that power at least, is a given! We've squashed in this week away because as you know by now, I'm scheduled for surgery days after we get back.  Because I need the silly WOYWW thing to continue, Jan has again stepped up and will be hosting until I recover. So the link party will be at Jan's place for now:
Lunch Lady Jan


I did get my act together and tidy up though. So the view is a bit changed and boy, do I feel better for it. It actually only took about 15 minutes to do. I've therefore nothing to offer in terms of a decent defence. Sigh. Some people just won't change! I found four pairs of scissors and I can't remember how many sheets of stamps that I thought I would use. But didn't. And now they are put away, so won't be used anytime soon!

Wow that is one tidy space you have going on and funny how we pull things out to use and never do guess that's why I've tucked away most of my little flowers lol happy WOYWW and I thought you scissors alway multiple on your desk hugs Nikki 8-9

Just use your time away to build yourself up and get some sunshine hopefully. I do think it kind of 'bucks one up' to have sunny days.
In the meantime leave us in the capable hands of Jan and relax.

Annie said...

Hope you're having a wonderful holiday soaking up the sun and recharging your body before the op Julia. We will miss you like crazy, think of you often and every one of us will be sending you best wishes and a lot of love but never fear WOYWW will hold itself together because that's what we do :-)
Huge hugs,
Annie x

Enjoy your break and wishing you all the best for the op.
I have the same issues with my desk, it looks ;like one big mess, but all it needs is a 5 minute clean up, but instead i shift everything to the side and work on.

Your desk looks lovely, like it's waiting patiently for your return from vacation and health to get good and crafty again. Have a wonderful holiday.

Anne L said...

Hello Julia. That is one clean desk and glad you found those scissors of yours.......I did have more then two before my DH used them on who knows what and bent them.....thank goodness they where not my sewing ones he grabbed when he found out how pricey it would be to replace. Hope your surgery and recovery is successful and speedy, my thoughts are with you. Hugs~Anne L#47

Morti said...

A tidy space indeed - hope you're having a lovely time relaxing, and I look forward to hearing that your home safe and sound, and that the operation when you have it has been a success!

Your desk looks wonderfully tidy. I always feel the need to clean before we go away. I wonder why that is!

Glad you are able to have a holiday before your surgery. Hope you have a wonderful relaxing time.

What a clean shiny desk! I'll bet it is very inspiring to have such a blank canvas like that.

Hope your op goes ok. Nice to have a clean desk! :) Lea #57

Belinda Basson said...

I have come up for air in the land of the living to see what has been going on in my absence only to find you are off on a galavant somewhere and that you are then going in for surgery! That will teach me for scyving off for so long! I can't believe it is year 7! I will have to miss this one. I might be back in time for next years celebration... one year I want to do it in person! That is still on my bucket list. Hope you have a fast recovery. Love from the other side of the world!

pearshapedcrafting said...

Wooh! The desk and the view look great! It's good that the tidy only took 15 minutes - how many times have I put something off only to find that when I do eventually tackle it the job is done really quickly and I wonder why I didn't do it earlier! Hope you are getting some time to build up your strength for when you have the op!
Hugs, Chrisx 42

Christine said...

That is one neat and tidy desk to come home to after a few weeks in the sun! Hopefully relaxing.
Praying all goes well with the op and that we shall see you back here soon.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I hope you are relaxed and enjoying the time away from home, work, and responsibilities before the surgery. It was more than likely an excellent idea to schedule a holiday just prior to your surgery. Have fun in the sun and just RELAX and breathe.

Cara said...

Enjoy your break and we have everything crossed for your op and a speedy recovery. Cara x

April Story said...

Wow - that is one clean desk! I hope you mess it right back up.

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Hi there Julia,
I am sorry I am but late popping as our internet went out for more than a day so was nearly the end of Thursday downunder so didn't end up doing WOYWW. It's now over half way through our weekend ..
I just wanted to say, firstly that I am praying for you every day esp for a great break away and also for every mercy covering you during the surgery and post recovery.
I'll pop over to Jan's too and say hi. I will, God willing, be joining in next week, mind you - haven't even made one ATC. My time is not my own just at the moment.
Hugs and prayers, Shaz in Oz.x
