I was staying at my Mum's house, with my brother and we had some more decorating to do (still lots more to do, but between the two of us we didn't do too badly!) no pictures of me up ladders in overalls this time though...and NO chocolate!
The Daily Mail Bungalow book is from the Ideal Home exhibition and dated 1922 and has loads of plans of bungalows - I thought I would use it in my crafts somewhere but may not be able to tear the pages out... same as the open book - which is rather grandly called The British Journal Photographic Almanac 1952 - my Dad was very keen on photography in his earlier days (mostly before we kids came along and got in the way and took all his money!) and had his own black and white (all there was then!) developing equipment. It's full of old adverts for cameras and things, and explanations of photographic terms etc. Not to mention some photos of scantily clad females...
Back here at home I had a bit of a clear out on Easter Monday - this is a pile to the left of my sofa and before I tackled it the 2 sets of drawers were on a huge pile of magazines now in the recycling bin... it doesn't look it, but this corner is LOTS better than it was!!
Anyhow, this Saturday coming is the Alexandra Palace stamp show (known as Ally Pally) and I am hoping to meet up with lots of blogger/twitters most of whom I've never met before so that should be fun.... you know what that means - next week there will be NEW STASH to show you... better do some more sorting out!!!
This is meant to be a "short and sweet" link for WOYWW (What's on your Workdesk Wednesday) and it is neither short nor probably sweet so I had better go or Julia will be cross with me!
