Whats On Your Work Desk Wednesday!

Hello all! Firstly I would like to thank everyone that commented last week, I nearly made it around to everyone but ran out of time eventually! This is what's on my desk today.


I am still trying to finish the scrapbook page for my son's bedroom, he has chosen his photographs and I am now trying to do something with them, here is a bit of a close up.


It looks a little bare at the moment but hopefully by the end of today it will look a little better!

We went away this weekend to our caravan in Battle in Sussex. It is really pretty there, here are some shots of Battle Abbey just down the road, where the Battle of Hastings was fought in 1066.


You can walk all around the Abbey and over the fields where the Battle took place and a couple of times a year they have re-inactments of the Battle with people all dressed up in costume and on their horses and have a bit of a skirmish, the kids dress up too and absolutely love it!

The village is very quaint, here is the sweet shop, where you still buy your sweets out of the jar, the kids have been here alot too!


 A Butterfly update............they have emerged!!!!!  We have five beautiful butterflies!


This is the best shot I managed to get, unfortunately they decided to come out of their cocoons whilst we were away but it was very exciting to see them when we came home.  They are kept in this..


And my youngest son is picking flowers for them and feeding them sugared water in a bowl, it has been so interesting for the whole family to watch, we will definately be doing this again. This weekend we will set them free so I hope to be quick enough to get a couple of photos of that too.

Anyway that's enough of my ramblings, I am off to have a bit of a tidy, my friends are coming round tonight for some pasta and a natter and wine of course!

If you haven't heard of WOYWW then check out Julia's blog to see what it's all about. I will be catching up with you all later!

Have a wonderful week!

She said...

Your LOs are looking good. Love the Butterflies. S xx

Angie said...

I know what you mean ...it took me 'tli Fridat to finish.
I find the finishing of a LO almost as hard as the starting...I expect you have found the perfect bits by now ...look forward to seeing the final piece.

That sweetie shop is so cute ...nothing to beat sweets from the jars ...I loved it when you could have a 'mixed quarter' when I was a kid.
Lastly ...what a wonderful experience to hatch the butterflies ...how long do they live? ... I was always told a couple of days but obviously that is wrong.

Twiglet said...

Typical that they emerged when you weren't there to watch - nature is like that isn't it!!! Fab butterfly tho.

Crafty Chris said...

Your desk looks fantastic, so tidy even though you are creating, wish \I was that good, love the wire baskets all of them. and what is that beside your screen, left hand side it looks lovely, can you tell I had a good nosey, oh just spied the heart that looks gorgeous as well, you have a lovely space to play in.

Battle Abbey looks gorgeous, worth a visit by the look of your pictures and I love those old fashioned sweet shops and I always end up spending a fortune in them. Love the scrapbook page too. I say it every week but I'm still admiring all your hearty things on your desk. Have a great Wednesday, Tracy Evans x x

Kaz said...

Fab photos Tracey - I went to Battle many years ago and climbed the towers (couldn't manage it now). Is the little tea shop still to the right of the entrance?
Your desk looks fab by the way. My niece's caterpillers have got big so I think they will be changing soon. Glad you had success with them xx

Wow Tracey - how awesome for the boys to see the lifecyle of the butterflies - shame they came out while you were away...

Lovely that your boys have been involved in chosing their own pics for the scrapbook page - that is so sweet.

Look forward to catching up with you and your other posts when i'm more up to date with WOYWW posts...

Sorry I'm a late poster! Love the photos of Battle. I've visited there twice and think it's very quaint and picturesque.
Have you been watching the BBC's series of programmes about the Normans? Great history of The Battle Of Hastings and a lovely walk through the Battle countryside, following the route William the Conqueror took to the battle. Well worth watching on i-player if you like history.
