What better place than woyww to tell Julia and all you lovely woywwers throughout the world, to watch out on live tv on Saturday morning for me!! I think you can get the stream on your computer from typing in 2012 Olympics/flame, or
Well I suppose I have gone a little overboard with that intro, but I hope you will see me because the Olympic flame will be passing through my village and past my house around 7.25am BST.  I'll be there with my camera trying to capture the moment. It starts off from the Royal Lytham and St. Annes golf course where this year's British open is being held in a few weeks, travels along Clifton Drive, past the White Church and my lovely Susi and family, round the corner where Lytham fair is set up for this weekend's gala, to Lytham where it will pass Lytham green and our famous windmill, shown in many adverts and plays etc on the tele. It then goes by coach to the new Land Registry building in Warton, my village, passing houses, BAe - where the Typhoon jet fighter is built - and then ME, before going back on the coach just a few yards from me at the roundabout to travel on to Preston. How exciting. I'll try and give you all a wave.
So to the real reason for a woyww post. Here is my desk:

A new set of Tim stamps - new to me that is - I just got these on Ebay, some lovely Tim and K & Co papers, an open exploding box that I have been taking the measurements from to do a tutorial for the lovely Jenn, the usual scissors etc. and a timetable for Condor ferries out of Poole to France. I thought we could take a trip whilst down that way in August, but the ferry times would mean having to stay in Cherbourg for 2 nights thus leaving the motorhome unattended longer than we would wish. Not looking good.
I hope I can get round more desks than I have managed these past few weeks. I have been crafting but mainly to get ahead of myself in readiness for our holiday. I know you lovely crafters understand.
So, see you Saturday then.

Sounds very exciting! Better find a good spot, in front of a famous landmark, if you hope to be on tv... Have fun!
The flame goes through our town in a couple of weeks' time, but unfortunately, it's early on a Saturday, when we are away for the whole weekend... So I'll just have to enjoy it all vicariously, through various bloggy folks' reports!

The stamps look nice... Enjoy your creating!

I sa the torch when it came near us, a fantastic atmosphere and well worth the little wait. You described the route so well I can picture it in my head (know the White Church well).
If I get up early enough I will steam it and try to spot you - wave something Tim Holtzish.

Enjoy the torch relay, it is so much fun just to see it go bye. I remember when it was here in Melbourne just down the road from us it was awesome, I do hope you get some photos or even get on the TV.

Happy crafting this week

What a lovely saying! Love that stamp.

I did not know that you lived in or around Lytham. What a beautiful town. We were there on holidays a couple of years ago. I remember it as such a beautiful area. It was school let out time and there were ever so many Mom's picking up their children and most were in skirts...gorgeous skirts.
I was impressed with the town, the area, the golf course:) and the sense of style!

Lucky you to live there!
