First of all, after the disappointment yesterday of being advised by the surgeon that whatever he did to 'peg legs' knee would not make any difference, I cheered him up a bit by letting him pick my 'blog candy' winner. Here she is then:
Please email me your address and I will send the 'goodies' off to you. well done.

Back to WOYWW. Don't know what those letters are all about?? Then pop over to our wonderful leader Julia at the Stamping Ground and you will be amazed.
I had so hoped to get to see everyone's desk last week, but failed miserably. I'm not on to a good start this week either as we have only just surfaced following a sleepless Monday night. However, the weather today is really miserable with very bad light, so I may just spend a bit of time on the computer and pop round a few.
I finished my clear out. Just got to label all the boxes. I am meeting my lovely friend Sonia on Sunday and she is taking some of the 'cleared' stash for herself and said she would give something to the NW Ambulance in exchange. Seems a good deal to me.
Another thing I managed to do was move the 4-drawer wheelie thingy full of stamps and my lock-and-lock stacks full of my Tim goodies, away from the radiator and store them in the bottom cupboard.

So much more room now and it's warmer!!
I'm still on with the chunky book pages having only 3 more to do. However, the deadline has been extended by a month so I don't have to rush the last ones. I had my timing planned anyway with everything going on, so the March one was achievable. I may just stick to that one so I can concentrate on something else for a change.

So this is my desk this morning. Not much to see except the corner of the layout for the page I am working on. Don't be fooled by what you see though. I have used that piece of 5"x5" paper for all of them!!
I hope you all have a lovely woyww and enjoy your travels today. Before I make the trip, I'm off to Tim's blog to see what CHA goodies he is showing today. Yesterday was a sneak at his new Alterations..........

Yyour stackable boxes are a very good way to store things that you need easy access to, great idea!

Great storage solutions and good news you'll have time to finish the art journal now. Not so good news for PL though.

Ooh, I'm so excited as I've won Joanne's blog candy. I can't wait for it to turn up.

I've never won blog candy before so I'm really happy.

Thanks Joanne.

glad to hear it's warmer. See all good things happen when things are in their proper place. Of course in the mess here there are things without a proper home and it's the cause of the clutter.

love the stacked boxes, I need to see my stuff otherwise it doesn't get used but the OH whises I was tidy like you!

Bad luck with the knee problem. My surgeon told me that he would not do anything for me until I really could not cope any more. The longer he can delay it the better in the end. Lots of nice storage to play with. Be warned, the labels are only as good as the last thing you stuffed into each box to tidy up fast.

Hello Joanne

A big thank you for the blog candy which arrived today.

There's some lovely goodies in there - I can't bear to give any of it away, I am definitely going to use it all, even the scrapbook although I'm not a scrapper!!!!!

Thank you, thank you, it's a bit of an early birthday present as it's my birthday tomorrow.
