What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday??

Week 259 over there at WOYWW and only one week left till the 5th anniversary celebrations!! Want to know more pop over to Julias blog for details. A big thank you to all who visited my desk last week and left lovely comments.             As you may know I've been up visiting the gorgeous Sophie for the past two weeks while hubby was working his butt off with 12 hour days, poor honey he's not used to 4:30am wake ups and crashed into bed by 8pm, but thankfully the job went well. 
Anyway we're back home (yesterday) and I'm all unpacked and just settling back to my desk, sorting and eager to get the purple card made.
Can you see my lovely new 6 drawer set in the middle that my two wonderful kids gave me for mothers' day - had to spend some time rearrange bits on my desk so it would fit - it's empty, so far.
Also on my desk LtoR red and kraft Christmas paper our friend Estelle shared with us Saturday week back, above that - my cheap finds while browsing shops in another city, also got the three little Easter buckets  for 75cents each. A blue and white card underway, two cards (center back) I have to photograph and post. In front left - lovely card from my dear friend Vikki just arrived today and next to that, one from Loly in USA for the Card Chain challenge (nice surprise in the mail box when we got home and thankfully it hadn't got wet with showers they're been getting here), she also included some die cuts and sequins, Thank you Loly. Then to the right some stamped sentiments and images I did while at Vikki's and above some die cuts from her dies for me to use...we share!!. My cup of tea there I'm enjoying as I post and in front a 'Special Grandma' pen from Sophie and Jacalyn.
Can you see Arthur under my desk - he's sleeping at last. He had a lovely time with brother Ginge and I think is missing his company :-(
Last pic of friends Estelle (L) and Vikki (R) having lunch last Saturday week at our sleepover stamping session, we were so busy I forgot to get a pic of us inside creating our masterpieces. This is Vikki's BBQ are, isn't it fabulous.
Well I'm off to visit some desks, hope you're all happy and healthy, thanks for taking a peek Robyn
PS...gorgeous Sophie out with family and friends for daddys birthday dinner
