WOYWW 117

Morning all (depending on where you are and when you get here, of course!) Hope you are all well and enjoying your tour of the workdesks of the universe hosted by the delectable Julia

By the time you read this I will be at work as usual - unfortunately! Only because I thought today was the start of a few days off, but I got the week wrong and it's actually from NEXT Wednesday I will be off... Grrrr!!  I was gutted when I realised on Tuesday.

So, what is on my floor today? Not a lot - well, that's a bare faced lie - it's covered with the usual craft stores - but not a lot crafty.  It's been a really unproductive time.  Perhaps I need to go shopping (lol! So far I've kept my pledge not to till Ally Pally - late September... will I make it? )

This really stoopid tag I made for the Everything Wendy Vecchi yahoo group challenge ('use a bottle or bottles') I was close to the deadline and couldn't think of anything 'proper' - was reluctant to use one of my Tim idea-ology bottles/vials - don't know why! so this was a bit of daftness!








Not sure what I will do with my days off - haven't got anything planned (just as well as I got the dates wrong!) - may have a day up in London - not been for a while and I love mooching around London. Just not having to get up at 5.30 and going to work will be break enough!  I don't have a car so I can't go far unless I can get there by bus or train.... or foot!

I would be sick as a parrot if I thought I was going to have a few days off and then realised it was next week... hope the days fly by and you enjoy your leisure time, whatever you decide to do!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I can relate to getting my week wrong. That happened once when I worked in industry. I think you will have fun on your days off, even without a car. And I think if you truly put your mind to it, you can wait for Ally Pally. After all, you have a TON of supplies to get you through the lean times!

jude said...

Your 'Seriously' tag made me lol!! Don't know why, think it's the moustache... *grin* Actually, it's a refreshing change to see that steampunky vintage look in a different colourway from, and I quote Julia herself here, seven shades of wee-wee!! Have fun up in The Smoke! I'm desperate to go and see the jewellery galleries in the V & A, see some quality bling :) xx

Sue said...

Susan Flynn said...

Oh you poor thing you must be devastated but at least you've got it to look forward to by next Monday it would all have been over but this way it will still be to come! You are a wonder not buying anything until AP I really admire your resolve, thanks for sharing x

Tertia said...

Love it when I think its Thursday and its actually Friday, but getting the week off wrong, might take years of therapy to get over! LOL You poor thing, it must be a horrible feeling!
Really like your bottle tag though.
Happy WOYWW

That's a fab tag and he is always so dandily funny. Love the splots!
Thanks for the peek! Sarah (at 4)

Julia Dunnit said...

Argh, bummer with the dates - i do that often when there's something I'm looking forward to..and worse, have turned up for appointments a week early too!
Well I like the tag. I think it displays your sense of humour well. And I also understand the not using a vial thingy...not ready yet!

Cathy said...

Opps on the dates mix up - I can totally relate to how you must feel.
Fab tag, love the green.
Happy WOYWW

Sharne Davies said...

Hi there Helen sorry to hear of mix-up with dates but also very pleased that it was Tuesday you realised and not Wed morning when you were sleeping on and enjoying it and being rung up as to why you weren't there??!! and thanks for sharing the tag - smiled at LLJan's comment :D and thanks for popping over. Happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz.x

SueH said...

Oh Helen, what a downer to think you had more days off only to find you hadn’t.
I’m not going to Ally Pally this time. If I’m honest I was a bit disappointed earlier in the year. A lot of the stands I like to visit weren’t there and the whole place was heaving more than I’ve ever seen it before. It just wasn’t very pleasant trying to get around.

Have a good week and…………
Happy Crafting!

angelfish said...

That's the kind of thing I would do too. As I've proved by getting the number wrong this week, although you seem to be on #117 like me!

Lisa-Jane said...

Oooh yes, a day in London would be lovely (so long as you stay away from the craft shops...)

April said...

Oh no poor you! I hate it when I do things like that... bit like waking up on a Thursday and thinking it's friday!! love the tag, great idea! enjoy your days off when they finally do come around! Thanks for sharing x

Jingle said...

Fun tag!

Sue said...

Lovely crafty mess, love your tag and hey you still have your days off to look forward to, least the kids will be back at school when you go up town! have fun, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Elizabeth said...

Argh, what a sickener ... a whole week to go still. Sounds like the spending moratorium is in danger of being broken but tomorrow is September already so can't be too long before the Ally Pally thing. Like you tag - love the colour - and quite understand the vial thing ... it's like being asked to give away your baby, you just wouldn't/couldn't do it. Hope your week cheers up. Elizabeth x

butlersabroad said...

Oh but next week will seem even sweeter when it finally gets here. Lots to do without a car in your neck of the woods, especially with London so close. I agree with LLJ, head to the V&A, The National Portrait Gallery or the British Museum, great venues. Oh! You could try boating on the Serpentine, lol! I'm on a short lunch break and trying to get round a few peeps!

Hugs
Brenda

Aj* said...

Doone said...

now there is an idea - do a three graces cast, and graffiti the statue...

thanks for dropping by my workdesk this morning,

have a fab few days off, check out Somerset House, if the Toulouse Lautrec is still on it is worth the admit fee...

Sam said...

How on earth do you create such lovely work whilst sat on the floor?

Poor girl I would have been miffed at the mistake in days too. Since I have retired I can't keep them straight either. Hope you get a couple of fun days while you are off next week. Have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie

Oh no, how disappointing to realize you still had another week of work. But I am posting this on Thursday night and you won't read it til Friday at the earliest and see, you are almost there into next week! Enjoy it when it comes! I like your tag with the spilled ink bottle!

S said...

Bummer about your days of freedom being a whole other week away. Your tag looks like you had fun. Thanks for stopping by my blog - sorry it took me so long to stop back.

MaggieC said...

Thanks for your visit this week - sorry it has take so long to get back to you. Just finished titivating the BluRays and DVD's ready to pass on. The best food on our trip, apart from all of it, was the fried baby squid and the wonderful langoustines. Hope you enjoy your days off next week.

Sarah Anderson said...

Oh no!! How disappointing!! But yay, you're off work tomorrow for a week :) Enjoy your trip to London if you take it, I love a good mooch down there too. Love your card today, that ink bottle is such a fun idea

Ohhh Snap said...

Extremely late, but just had to say how much I adore your tag! Perhaps because DD and I are always saying seriously to each other during bouts of giggles :D.

I am also frequently calendar challenged.
