Well what a busy couple of days I've had and not a card in sight. We have sold the motorhome so I spent all day Sunday cleaning and polishing it before the buyer came, all day Monday emptying it because they were definitely buying it, and all morning Tuesday trying to work out what to do with it all. (OH who is part time chaplain at the local hospice went off to drink tea all day while I did the sorting).
We intend to replace the motorhome with a caravan at some point in the not too distant future, but the bulk of the money from the motorhome is going towards buying a bigger boat. However in the meantime the contents, it is amazing how much stuff we accumulated in just a year, have to be stored. Fortunately we have a large attic so I filled 4 large boxes and lugged them up to the attic.
So today will be spent making the 6 cards that I need before the weekend, unfortunately I think I have packed my mojo in the box with the stuff.
Anyway this is my very unexciting worktop and the only thing worthy of comment is that I have been trying to put unused ATC's to use as toppers for cards, back left and right.
So onto a more interesting subject. Since we have come back from holiday Max has found a new place to sleep. There are lots of warm pipes under the floor in the airing cupboard and Max being a bright pussy cat he has found them.
One happy cat.
And best of all, our beloved Julia appears to be back in action after having had her holiday plans somewhat rewritten. So if you are wondering why I am baring all, so to speak, go and visit her, where WOYWW will be explained and hopefully she will have links to some more exciting worktops and you can snoop to your hearts content.
Thank you for visiting me and reading my rubbish, and if you make a comment I will get back to you.
Bless you all

Morning Chris. You mean he escaped all that effort??? Might have to cross him off the Christmas card list.... tee hee.
Well done - you got there to your desk, if only for a short while to use up your ATCs.
Have a great day, and trust the cold disappears soon so we can meet up.

Cats always find the warmest place to sleep don't they or in a cardboard box which ours do!!!
Your cards are looking lovely, sounds like you have a marathon make there. Hope Mr Mojo returns soon.

A bigger boat? What, like the QE2 or something? ;-) How exciting though, lovely to have plans like that! I was at Caen Hill locks in Devizes recently, that is fun watching the boats get through that flight. I quite like sorting out stuff, I don't hang onto much but I guess you'll need it for the new caravan. This means you can come to the crop next year - Burbage has got a lovely caravan site on a farm. Ask Debbie Rock!

That is one contented cat! I hope your Mojo returns soon, but to me the cards on the desk look great and it doesn't really look like your mojo has gone far! Thanks for sharing. Happy belated WOYWW. Caro x (#41)

The cards look lovely but I understand about the mojo, it's diffficult to concentrate when there is so much going on. Walk away, have a rest and then try again.
Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x #45

Lovely cards and poor you having to do all that hard work, take it easy for a couple of days. Max is helping you, you can see that can't you, he is stopping you from doing any more house work like the cleaning and ironing which is the worst job in the whole world. See he really loves you lots. Give him a tickle under the ear from us.

Happy Belated WOYWW
