What's on my Workdesk?
Not much at the moment I'm afraid as events, as they say, have overtaken me. First the family holiday in Somerset where I managed to fall over, twist my ankle very badly and spend 2 and a half hours in the Minehead minor injuries unit. Despite the ankle swelling up like a balloon, turning a lovely shade of greeny-blue (think Shabby Shutters crossed with Broken China) the x-ray showed no fracture so it meant rest for a couple of days followed by increasing amounts of exercise.
It still hurt like heck (but I'm not one to moan - much) but being a good girl I followed advice did ALL my holiday ironing and even took the dog out for a walk/hobble on Monday. Thought if I took her ball on a rope I could get her to exercise while I stood more or less in one place - wrong. She was happy to run after the ball and bring it halfway back but then drop it and come racing back to me for a treat so I had to go for it - all the hours of dog training worked very well then. Ended up with a throbbing swollen ankle on Monday afternoon.
Then got a phone call yesterday from the Somerset Hospital, the x-ray report showed a small fragment of bone by the ankle and a suspected fracture so I had to go to my local walk-in centre. Great, another 2 hours of fun, and a further x-ray. Ended up back at home, strapped up again (too small a fragment for a plaster cast thank goodness) and told to rest - only wish I'd found out before I did the ironing.
Still managed to do a bit of playing with my new Tim Holt Papillon stamps - love that french text backgound - and my favourite Distress Inks.
Not sure where I'm going with this but I sense a French theme as I want to use some of those little charms you can see to the left of the black mat. Have to thank Jozart for introducing me to the joys of bargain hunting through the Primark jewellery sale items. Mind you I'm nowhere near as expert as Jo as these cost me all of £1 each! The cute little white poodle on the safety pin broach is calling out to be added to a french card so who am I to resist.
Well seeing that I'm a lady of enforced leisure I'm toddling over to Julia's blog at Stamping-Ground to see what the other WOYWWers are doing this week,
