W9WTW 468

Hi everyone and welcome to WOYWWs 9th Anniversary.
I'm afraid I still haven't managed to get anywhere near anything resembling craft,  so I have no ATCs to swap, which is rather frustrating,  because I had such great plans.
However, this was what Mr D  and I tackled yesterday,

















And this is what it looked like at the end of the day.
So we are making progress but there is still a long way to go, and once again, as we still don't have a phone line and broadband,  I cannot promise to get back to you, if you visit, but I do appreciate your lovely comments.
If you are wondering why I am blathering on about my Worktop on Wednesday, especially as mine is non-existence, please visit, Julia, the desk Deva at The Stamping Ground , where everything wiĺ be made clear, and you will find links to real crafty desks.
Meantime Deskers, have a wonderful WOYWW anniversary, and I'll go back to clearing grass!
Bless you
Chris

Happy 9th anniversary Chris. You can certainly see what you have been working on. If the weather remains this good at least it won't hold you up. Hope the broadband is sorted soon. Sarah #?

Morning Chris - happy 9th anniversary! Wow!! Progress on that massive lawn - well done. Ducks still in their hotel??? I was hiding the PIF ATC with the piece of paper - it's the pile of paper I use as a base when stamping. I find I get a better result if I have something a bit softer beneath my card or whatever - use it for practising, too!
Take care. Love to you and himself. God bless.

Hi Chris, pleased to see you settling in. I think I saw washing on the line yesterday as we went past so things must be coming along okay in the kitchen! Bit cooler here today but probably better weather for gardening. Have a great woyww anniversary and hope the broadband arrives soon. Angela x20x

Happy 9th WOYWW Chris, it's been great to get to know you online and in person! You're making great strides with the house and garden, it all takes time but you'll get there. Fingers crossed for swift phone/broadband connection!!
Hugs LLJ 2 xxxx

Your yard looked about like mine did yesterday. After having NO moisture since last November, we had almost 2" of rain last week. Everything was so happy and grew faster than expected.

I know you must be disappointed, but just think. You get to participate, at least when your internet is working. Isn't that the most frustrating thing?

Thanks for visiting me earlier. Happy 9th anniversary from #13.

Here we are at year 9 of this incredible Blog group. I love you photos of the countryside as it provokes memories of a life long ago. Now live in Texas where we seem perpetually in drought. have a great week

I can so sympathize with you! When we moved we didn't have internet for 15 days! When the postman finally turned up with our router the day after the phone was connected I could have kissed him LOL! Hope everything will settle and get on the right track for you! Happy anniversary! zsuzsa #8

I am not surprised you haven't got round to crafting yet! well done on the neat lawn though, what a difference! Happy anniversary! Helen #4

Kim said...

Happy Anniversary! I hope you get your phone and internet back, and good for you for putting yard work before crafting; we've been very wet and if I don't do the same it will be a lost cause! So if not a crafty week, then I hopeyou have a very productive week.

Hi Chris, that looks a lot of work in one day! I hope you get your phone and internet sorted soon. Happy WOYWW anniversary! Have a lovely week Heather x #17

Julia Dunnit said...

It’s great to see you and so fab of you to take time and find internet when you have so much going on. My word Chris, this is distinctly measurable progress. What hard work it must have been, I hope you’re both being sensible and rest and recuperation is also on the cards! I hope the cooker and fridge are still making you smile by the way, I know they would me!

Dorlene Durham said...

Happy 9th anniversary! WOW, that was a huge job! I hope you are able to rest well after all that. Have a wonderful week. Dorlene #40

Happy 9th Anniversary Chris, now you have put me to shame with my garden. Hope your broadband is sorted soon although at times for me it's a blessing to move onto other things when it is down. Wishing you a productive Bank Holiday.
