What's On My Workdesk Wednesday

Hi folks...I'm abandoning any hope of Summer now...time to look out my winter togs and turn up the heating because the weather's gone crazy in my neck of the woods...
waves breaking over the South Sea Wall at Aberdeen Harbour yesterday...
whipping the sea into an angry cauldron of sea foam which engulfed the houses around the harbour at Footdee or in Aberdeen speak...Fittie
I've never seen anything like this before in my lifetime...
And who in their right mind would be crawling out of bed when it's still dark...the rain's lashing against the window and the wind's doing it's hardest to whip the roof of the house...no chance of turning over for an extra hour of snuggliness in this house with the Furry Alarm Clock bouncing on and off the bed doing his baby elephant impression...ignore him and he assumes I must be in need of mouth to mouth resuscitation...trust me it's easier to get up...head downstairs...put the kettle on while his Lordship wolfs down his breakfast before heading back upstairs to resume his slumbers by which time I'm wide awake and feeling non too chirpy either.
But on a cheerier note...it's Wednesday and that means I'm heading over to Julia's place aka WOYWW where lots of lovely crafty folks allow us to snoop around their crafty spaces...so what's on my workdesk today...
the debris left over from Saturday's workshop project which is sorted and kitted up...I just need to get busy with the demo stuff now but first I have to get kitted out in the stormy weather gear for our morning stroll...I will be keeping a tight hold of my furry partner...surely his 42 kilo coffee table style body will prevent me from becoming airborne and flying off into the wild blue yonder Mary Poppins style.  Stay cosy and safe everyone...I'll see you all tomorrow to share some demo sneaky peeks
Hugs Kath xxx

Oh my goodness...I have never seen anything like it either! That looks shockingly scary. Hope everyone there is alright!

Take care...I know Buddy needs walked but...take care.

Your kits looks lovely so far...always look forward to checking out the finished projects though.

Back surgery for me on Monday so I'll be absent from commenting for a while:(

Pia said...

Wow - amazing pictures! I've never seen anything like this - it must be very scary to live in one of those houses! Have a great day!

May said...

We had this foam last year Kath it was everywhere! The weather here in the northwest isn't much better, we had someone coming for tea last night but after trying 4 different routes they had to give up as everywhere was flooded mmmm wonder if that means another hose pipe ban is round the corner???? Your worktop looks busy and I know what you will be doing today!! x

jill said...

I was watching on the news about the sea foam. happy crafting & take care jill #28

Ribbon Girl said...

Look after youself Kath - your foam looks very strange andd scary. I feel so sorry for all those who have suffered flooding once again - so many in this part of the country. hugs Mary G x

Anne said...

Take care when you're out Kath. I've never seen anything like it, the weather's certainly gone mad. Hope you and Buddy have a good day. x

Chloe's Nan said...

Oh my word Kath! I've never seen anything like that sea foam before - almost looks like a freak snow fall! Hope you and Buddy are keeping safe and warm, happy crafting x

Redanne said...

Hi Kath, I saw it on the news, never seen anything like it before. Hope it does not get worse in your area and that those who have been flooded are safe. Take card and hang on tight to Buddy! Crafty hugs, Anne x

lilyf said...

Could hardly believe the scenes on the local news last night Kath. Never seen anything like it.

Busy in the crafty room today by the looks of your desk.

Helen said...

I saw those pics on the news yesterday - didn't realise that's where you are! Hope you are ok..... Happy WOYWW, Helen, 35

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Goodness me Kath . . . astonishing pictures. Please take care. Stay safe.

DoodleSuze said...

Wow Kath!
Those pics are amazing .. hope everyone's ok ... Can't believe they didn't show this on the news .. it was all about the flooding.
Winter is definitely around the corner, I sorted my winter clothes yesterday.

You made me chuckle about Buddy's wake up antics .. I had the same treatment this morning from Shona .. Pity it's one of my days off but I think she's returning the favour as I give her a snuggle before I go to work (very early lol!)

Paula (PEP) said...

Sounds like you have a very effective alarm clock! Those photos are unbelievable. You take care - 42 kilos is a little less than my weight & doesn't help much as ballast!

rachel said...

I couldn't believe that foam when I saw it on the news - its just crazy - you stay in the cubby hole - its much nicer in there!!!! Hugs Rachel xx

Sharon (glitterangel) said...

Gosh that looks scary! I hope you manage to keep your feet firmly on the ground on your walk this morning :) Sharon x

Ann Rosie said...

Those pictures are amazing and my heart goes out to anyone who has had to suffer due to the recent weather. It was thunder & lightning and torrential rain here at 5am. Couldn't believe it when hubby awoke only after the fourth flash of lightning and rumble of thunder, and within minutes he was making as much noise as the thunder as he promptly fell back asleep. Now this morning the sun is trying to shine!

My name is Cindy said...

Wow those photos really show the power of nature! The people living there must have been terrified.

I have a furry larm clock too - doesn't bother me every day (my son is often first port of call) but always seems to be when I'm ready for a lie-in!!

Great desk, but I have to ask, whatever is shadow ink?

Happy WOYWW Cindy #88

Yvette said...

Wow - amazing pictures! I've never seen anything like this: scaring but beautiful to see!

Anesha said...

Oh Kath you do make me laugh! Love those photos, they are amazing. Hope you and Buddy keep warm and dry. Hugs Anesha

Morti said...

Oh my word, all that seafoam! That stuff smells awful too...... those poor people!

Fabulously inspiring desk this week - I never knew you could get Card Candi to match Adirondack's Lettuce pigment ink... LOL.... will have to keep and eye out for that!

The hounds here wave a big hello to Buddy, Twig in particular, though Hamish is not especially backward in coming forward now. He does a good line in smacking you round the back of the leg with his paw for attention - not funny when he weighs 55kg and stands nearly 3ft tall at the hips...

Jennifer said...

OMG Kath...those photos are incredible! Although it must be so scary living there, it is really spectacular...that 1st photo is amazing - it looks more like a painting than a photo.

Do please take care when out walking Buddy.

It looks as if you all had a great time at your retreat.

Hugs,
Jennifer. x

Erika said...

Was thinking of all of you over that way yesterday with all the wild weather. Wasn't quite so bad here. Loving your desk it's looking very productive.
Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday,
hugs Erika.

Gosh look at that! Looks like snow! Bet it was a wild night for those close to the harbour. Hope you and Buddy stayed grounded on your morning walk, can't be much fun in weather like that!

Sandy Leigh said...

Oh my goodness--that first photo is so wonderfully violent of nature! I am still desperately trying to hang onto summer here in the Ozarks, in the middle of the U.S. Thank you for sharing that--and so many lovely stamps and inks on your desk. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh at #11

Kat said...

Saw some pics like these in the papers today Kath. As you say unbelievable. Can't help thinking that bad as this looks for Aberdeen some areas have had it even worse. I think it's been really bad in the Borders. Must have been a nightmare for the people at Fittie though. Makes me glad to not be as near the sea as that.

Kat xx

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, do be careful with Buddy out there, Kath! Those pictures are terrifying, yet beautiful. Doggone Mother Nature anyway, so bipolar!!

Stay in and hunker down and be safe! Darnell #74

Being firmly rooted in the center of the United States, I have never seen anything like those photos either. As the title of the post was WOYWW, I thought I was looking at either a frilly flower on your desk, or some wadded up netting left over from one of your sewing projects. Mother Nature can do some awesome things! Poor Buddy, first his Summer of being so sick, and now his Mum is comparing him to a coffee table!! Poor Boy!! Linda S. in NE

Patricia said...

Saw this on the telly,
Used to live in Torry and have seen wild seas but never anything like this.
Your worktop looks rather busy!!!!

Christine B. said...

Wow could hardy believe it sea foam. Definately looked like it had snowed. Hope you and Buddy had a safe stroll. Hugs x ChrisB

butterfly said...

Good grief, those sea pictures are extraordinary... I hope you were safely tucked up indoors at your lovely craft desk... even the leftovers look enticing! Happy WOYWW!

Krisha said...

I saw those amazing pics of the foam on the news, never seen anything like it before. What weather we've been having. I'm glad you stayed safe and dry.
Happy WOYWW

Alexandra said...

I always thought having a seaside veiw would be lovely... these photos are giving me second thoughts. I have seen wild weather at the coast but nothing as bad as this when compared to these photos.
We had high winds too Monday and Tuesday. I just missed having bones crushed in a door thrown shut with the wind at work but got away with skint knuckles instead, I pulled my hand back just in time.
Your desk looks much more inviting than the weather. Hugs Alexandra x

Katie Bolinger said...

Oh my good God. Those pictures are amazing and terrifying. I wonder if anyone was caught in that and oh the mess.
