WOYWW 272 - a week off (work, not from WOYWW!)

Hi, welcome to another round of desk/globe trotting. I am on a week off work this week - so far I've had a day at Kew (see the photos here) on Monday and London (see the photos here) yesterday - think my legs want a rest today!

 Although, I did stand up to take these shots!
my A4 journal that I've been using lots lately, closed on the "desk" sitting on top of my pile of stencils (which usually sit on top of the Fresco paints in the plastic box)
I "may" have a bit of a sort out later today.... or maybe I'll just craft!

Join in with WOYWW here.

We are having real British weather...it is lashing it down with rain! It would be a good day to craft if I didn't have to go to work! Sounds like you are having a great week off. #23

Oh a sort out is sometimes fun, you find things that you forget you had, if you don't sort hope you enjoyed the arting instead

Lynda Beazley said...

OOh I think I'd definitely craft! I have looked at your 2 previous posts (been on holiday) and your journal pages are fab. Also enjoyed all of your photos. I can't get my new photos page to publish again this week. Its very frustrating!

{tee hee} Your floor puts my floor to shame. When DH and I came to the UK for a visit, years before we moved over, Kew was the first place we visited. Lovely place and reminds me another trip is surely overdue - by more than 20 years, I think :)

Happy WOYWW!

What a wonderful trip to Kew on your week off work! Fabulous pictures - you have a real eye for photos. Trust your legs are recovering well after that exertion! HOW many steps???
Enjoy the rest of your time off.
Take care. God bless.

I love Kew, haven't been for years though! Train ticket prices seem high at the mo, even booked in advance;was hoping for a London trip with my daughter. X

Shaz Brooks said...

Kew- something else on my to-do list! Never been, my Eldest son just got a booking to do the editing for next years TV recording, lol. Crafting over sorting, every time! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #16 xxx

Robyn said...

a busy desk is a happy desk!

Well, I'd craft rather than sort out any day! Whatever you decided, hope you had a lovely day of your hols! Julie Ann xx

Darnell J Knauss said...

No horrors here, Helen! You have the type of brain that can work like this and I'll bet you know where everything is, don't you? See, that's why I can't do it. I LOSE everything if it gets too messy and I hate wasting time lifting this and that and patting here and there ... you would know immediately where the lost thing is so it's all works for you!! Thanks for coming to see me! Happy WOYWW and enjoy the rest of your week off! Hugs, Darnell #19

Ali H said...

Julia Dunnit said...

Well it's later in the day, and I reeaaaallly want to guess right and say you spent crafting time not sorting time! Fab fab photos from Kew and London, you really have a great eye.

Thank you for your visit!
If I wouldn't have children running around my floor would probably be full of stuff as well, though I wouldn't work on the floor. Where would I leave snippets of paper that I can throw away then?
Love all the little cans,mugs, basket, shoeboxes (aren't those great?) and plastic cups full of things - there's always something to be stored, and always plenty of things to store something in (althoug not always in the shape you need).
Happy week off!

I'd take the crafting option anyday. Tidying up is like housework, you only do it when there is absolutely nothing else to do (he he). Loved the photos of Kew, it's really pretty.
Have a great week.
