What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday..55

Morning everyone....well summer has returned to this far flung part of the UK..it was cooking yesterday and it's getting me in the mood for tennis......thoughts of sitting getting all red and lobstery.....eating strawberries and cream...the click clack of the ball as it wings it's way time and time again over the net in a marathon Federer rally...oh yes did I mention I am off to Wimbledon tomorrow.....and I can't wait....am so excited.
But why oh why do the British media always have to pour a damper on things.....the mighty Mr F gave me a few scary moments on Monday but pulled back to win through to the next round.....and the media go crazy.....is the mighty one finished...going to be out in the next round.....for goodness sake the guy is human and probably just having an off day....we can all relate to off days can't we....he's not some super machine playing every shot perfectly.....so give the guy a break.
And not content with that....they are now whipping up a storm about who is or is not going to bow and curtsey to Her Maj on Thursday....not helped by comments from Andy Murray who thinks he will look foolish if he bows and his opponent doesn't......what planet is this guy on....as my old Mum used to say "don't follow the flock....do what you think is right"....and if I was his Mum I would be giving him a clip round the ear and a good talking to....time to grow up young man.   And haven't they been in their element with the goings on at the World Cup.....players going on strike...dissent in the England camp....oh for goodness sake...lots of prima donna behaviour from a bunch of overpaid little boys who have come to believe the hype about how wonderful they all are.....the sooner it's over the better but the media will then move on to the next lot of sensational news...anything that will sell newspapers.
I feel better for getting that off the old chest and after that little rant it's time to play along at WOYWW this week.   The work stuff is all up to date so today I am having a little play with some felt and Tim's Tattered Florals...


no I haven't got World Cup fever....making some cards to be sold in aid of a very worthwhile cause....and you can join in the fun too....will post details tomorrow.....am abandoning the cubbyhole for the garden....a crafting session out in the sun...


and will be taking this with me


so I had better get a move on but I leave you with this thought......has the furry boy got wind of my girlie trip away and in his own funny way trying to tell me something....he deposited this at my feet this morning....


Catch up with you all tomorrow with news of a fun day out at Simply Create
Hugs Kath xxx

Morning Kath
Enjoy yourself at wimbledon tomorrow and don't forget the sunscreen, I saw a few people looking a bit lobster like on the tele yesterday. Its been beautiful up here hasn't it. Hopefully it'll last for the rest of the week as today will be spent indoors for me as I'm helping at Rachaels school!

OMG Kath I wish I was as tidy as you. My desk looks like Steptoe's yard. I envy you going to Wimbledon tomorrow (have a great time), if you happen to come across Rafa then I will be tragically jealous.I adore the felt flowers, wish I had just a fraction of your imagination.cThanks for sharing.

Hiya Kath

funny I live in london and have never been to wimbledon for the tennis lol, have a wonderful time, I am in full agreement about the clip round the ear if you run into him give him one from me too, as for those footballers as much as I want them to win I agree they are overpaid and think the sun shines out of their ***** lol gone are the proud days!!! loving all the red!

Hi Kath Enjoy your day out at Wimbledon. I'm not a fan but would enjoy the strawberries. Love the look of your flowers and ribbons. x Hugs CHrisB

mustavcoffee said...

Good afternoon Kath, had to laugh at your post today, what is it with these chaps, what are they thinking? They are at the top of their game and behaving like little boys, Ah well we can be as bad to be honest.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow, looks as if you should have lovely weather.....and strawberries, what more can a girl ask for?

Sunshine Girl said...

Glad you feel better after your rant - it helps sometimes doesnt it! and hope you had a fabulous day at Wimbledon too. Love those flowers - you have now reminded me that I bought some red felt at the Malvern Quilt show to do exactly the same thing with my tattered flower die but havent gotten around to it yet - wonder where I put the felt? off to have a look...

Nat said...

beautiful felt flowers, love the ribbon too!

Hunters Moon said...

ursula Uphof said...

I am as green as the lawns of Wimbledon with envy. Was stuck to my chair, when Roger was playing. Enjoy the day. I am also enjoying the soccer. Big hug for Bud.

Linda Elbourne said...

The mighty one is sooooooooo not finished ... I am not a huge Tennis fan but I am glad you are enjoying it ... I do Love Mr Roger ... a lot though ;0)

Heather x said...

oh a woman after my own heart! I love the tennis, hubby and I have been watching it avidly, wish we could go and watch for real!
We both think that the football prima donna's need to get back to real life and real wages...thats why they are so crap, cos all they think about is the money.....other countries play alot better because they aren't paid anywhere near as much as our lot are.
*hugs* Heather x

butlersabroad said...

Stupid papers, and TV news for that matter. I never bother with it any more as it's all doom and gloom and if they have no news they just make it up! Enjoy your trip South of the border too, hope you've been saving up your pennies for the strawberries... just keep in mind how many stamps you could buy for that amount!! Thanks for the PB love on my card yesterday, it's muchly appreciated!

Hugs to Buddy
Brenda

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I have a friend who just called me and said there was a match that was still in progress and it was up to 48 games. Longest game in Wimbledon history. So, hope you have that same excitement tomorrow. Enjoy your day.

TinaB said...

Wimbledon you lucky thing xx Have a great time hun and great space xx

Kat said...

Love those flowers Kath. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

Agree with you about the papers. I only read the Herald and the P&J so when I see the front pages of the gutter press I don't usually know who they're talking about!

Have a lovely time at Wimbledon.

Kat xx

Rufus said...

Ok, NOW I'm really jealous! Would love to go to Wimbledon! Instead I just watch it on ESPN and The Tennis Channel. If you've been watching maybe you should hustle over to court 18! You've certainly picked what promises to be an exciting day. Have lots of fun. Maybe I'll catch you on the big screen!
