What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? Back in the Swing of Things

Hello there, nice to see you all again, whether you are WOYWDWers or any of my other lovely readers! You might have noticed that there has been a distinctly Gallic flavour to my blog over the past few weeks, but sadly I am now back home and back at work. (I don't really expect any sympathy, having had 5 weeks holiday in France) I have left hubby and the kids over there , as they don't return to school for another week. Although it is lovely to have some time to myself after 14/7 family time, I do miss them, especially since it is R's 9th birthday today. I managed to say goodbye without a tear on Monday but I did have a little cry this morning when I wished him Happy Birthday over the phone.

Anyway, I have to work every day this week apart from today so I am using the time to catch up on the jobs which I didn't get done before I went away. One of which was to install my new CraftRobo. I bought it second hand for a song from a friend of a friend at the crop I attend. I've never owned a die-cutter before. It took me 2 hours this morning to manange to cut one title, and I still haven't managed to install the Design Master CD I was given with it. However, I will keep practising because I can see it coming in very handy soon for multiple-make Christmas cards.

September is a very busy time for my family. My daughter is about to start Reception full time so in theory I will have more time during the day, but I will be teaching a new level this year, which will be a challenge and our irreplaceable admin assistant is off for the first month of term. I am also  joining a new Church home group, I will have 2 school PTAs to help instead of 1, and Shimelle's learn Something New Every Day starts tomorrow.

I will try to blog more regularly than I have over the summer, but please be patient with me. Crafting usually takes a back seat at this time of year, apart from Christmas cards.

Ok, I have to: hang out the washing; go to the bank; drop a book round to my sister-in-law; buy a new cartridge for my Xyron X50 and some fish food; and have a haircut; then I will be back to visit some other WOYWDW desks. See you soon.

It's the first day back here today, so I'm enjoying a bit of peace and quiet too. It's funny how we still manage to find enough jobs to fill the day all the same isn't it?
