What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks...I'm beginning to think the cubbyhole's been selected for a get-away from it all...let's go have some fun holiday by the dreaded gremlins...2 days of disasters can't be a co-incidence surely and going by this morning's shenanigans...they've booked in for more than a mini-break. Playing silly beggars with The Furry Boy's bladder control meant a rude awakener from my cosy slumber...leaping out of bed at 5.00am and rocketing downstairs for an emergency call of nature ain't a great start to anybody's day. Even making tea and toast turned into a Krypton Factor Skills Contest wrestling with the superglued seal on the top of the milk and instead of my usual dark brown and crispy "just the way I like it" toast...I ended up with a cross between cotton wool and damp cardboard barely coloured...that toaster setting knob fiddler's been at it again.
But it's not all bad news...they haven't got round to playing fast and loose with the camera YET...so it's time to share what's on my workdesk and pop over to meet up with lots of crafty folks at Julia's place aka WOYWW.  A day of mucky inky fun is on the cards with Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 fabulous Art Parts and stamps...


 for my Art Parts day at The Papeterie on Saturday 19th May...just a teeny sneaky peek...
Free Make and Takes 10.00am-12.30pm....
Make an "Art Parts Album" Class
 1.30pm-4.00pm
to book a space call 01224 802337
but we're not out of the woods yet...it seems my trusty old keyboard has been struck down in the night with the incurable sticky key syndrome...so once I've sorted out the bird's nest hair...the polyfilla has dried and if the little beggars haven't moved the car keys..I'm off to get a replacement and will be typing out a great big EVICTION NOTICE and be warned Mr Blogger if you have any funny ideas about getting a piece of the action and adding to my life of woe..it will be all-out WAR
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

  17. Sorry about your mad start to the day, how annoying the lid was stuck - last straw and all that.
    I cannot believe I have no WV stuff at all and yet I admire her work so much. Must seek a remedy.
    Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #19 xx

  24. Oooh nasty case of the gremlins! Instead of bladder issues, I have the early AM get the dog out before she barfs on the floor. Not a pleasant way to start the day. May the rest of your day flow with simplicity and ease free of further gremlin trouble. Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting! Warmly, Tracy #16

  40. I hate those days/weeks that are filled with one disaster after another. You get afraid to say, "What next?!" Your crafty space is looking good and has great things to play with, that is as long as the gremlins don't make off with it all when your back is turned.

  43. I love a woman who says what she means! I think the toaster thing is horrible, flabby toast - just makes me shudder! Loving the idea that you spend the day inking up the art parts, at least that will stop your fuses blowing!

  44. I love all the goodies on your desk and I think an early wake up call is probably better then a sleep in but have to clean up the mess.

  46. Well Kath & Buddy, I do hope things have improved for both of you by now. With so many lovely goodies to play with you need a break. Oh, and I have so got to agree with you about milk bottle tops ... I often have to resort to stab the wretched thing just to get at the contents! Elizabeth x #68

  48. I'm even later than Amy this week, but such is life!

    I'm glad I did stop by - oh my, you're having a time of it. But oh so funny, the way you've put it! I can just see you stood there, hands on hips, eyeing up the gremlins in corners they hide with one eyebrow raised and a stern retort on the tip of your tongue.... rofl....

    Hugs to Buddy from Arwen and Twig, Twig says he's sorry to hear about the Bladder woes and asks if Buddy knows anything about deafness/cataracts....
