101st WOYWW

I am having to schedule this post as I'm writing it quickly on Tuesday night - last night as you read it.
My desk only has 2 items on it but both are craft ones. The first is the set of stamps I won in the Artistic Stamper draw the other week, Botanical Plate 3. Let me tell you, these stamps are really lovely and wonderful quality which I love about the company. The other item is the latest supplement from Cardcraft Plus in Preston. I have been on their mail list for ages, but as the store is only about 13 miles away, it's a regular stop off for me.
Well, at long last the rendering is finished. The change in the weather put the lads back a couple of days but they battled on and it's done. Today sees the big clear up outside and putting the water barrels and outside cupboards back in place. However, it also means another pile of washing which I hope to peg out instead of having to use the dryer all day.
Talking of pegs, it was 'peg leg's' 70th birthday yesterday plus our 22nd wedding anniversary. With the work outside still in progress, we only managed to pop to a local pub for a carvery at tea time. We hope to go out tomorrow though and make up for lost time.
Here is a picture of his birthday cake and cake pops made by our Susanna. Now there's clever for you.
I may not get round every one's desk again this week, but I will try. In the meantime, if you pop over to Julia's blog, you will see some extremely interesting desks and projects in the making.
