WOYWW 72


Today it's the return of a busy desk. As my mum is here I have been taking the time (and opportunity) to get information on some of the heritage photos that i have. Of course it is going to benefit her as the return on her time is going to be lots of pages with lots of information/journalling for her albums.

My sister brought me a couple of books to read, we have problems getting English books here and most of my friends dont have the same taste in books as I do. That is why there is a reading book as opposed to craft book on my desk, she is staying in the craft room/spare bedroom (poor thing). That's also the reason for the tight shot of my desk and nothing else.

I didnt have a lot of time last week to visit WOYWWers, but I promise to try harder this week. Thank you to everyone who visited my blog last week and left lovely messages. I think i managed to visit everyone, although it did take ages without the number. I had a great time on my roadtrip to Sirince, but didnt like the early rise. Hence I dont think I'll be at the coveted #1 place again, love my bed too much.

If you are wondering why I am showing this mess, pop over to Julia's blog to join the fun. Have a lovely wednesday and i hope you all have better weather than our thunder & lightning.

Have a lovely visit with your mom. You will both benefit from all that knowledge. And I've wanted to read that book since FOREVER. Let me know how it ends (just joking). Like you, I tried to find the links without the numbers and gave up two weeks ago. I finally found visiting everyone was easier than trying to chase down names. Happy WOYWW and I'm no. 12 this week.

I bought that book recently, haven't read it yet though. Great idea with the photos, I think a girly day with my mum putting names to faces sounds like a good plan. Pop on over to m blog cos you've won the Halloween mini candy!

How lovely to get all the information on the heritage pictures - my Mom and Dad cant remember who or what is on most of ours! That book is a good read too! Thanks for sharing (No 46)

Love the old photos, definitely get all the info now and don't put it off, your family past is very important. I research mine and my husbands family trees and it's absolutely fascinating. Enjoy your visit with your mum.

I don't read books that often but really enjoy them when I do, daft really!

The sampler thing on my desk is just from me testing some little Versamark ink pad cubes :-)

I don't blame you about getting up early to post WOYWW - just not important enough! Hope you and your Mum are enjoying time together - and enjoy the books - the first one is great!

I didn't visit you last week, so am here now - lol. I watched the The Time Traveler's Wife last night - and loved it! I haven't read the book. It's happy and sad - more of a chick flick though I think as my husband wasn't too keen! Hope you enjoy reading the book.
