Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

WOYWW 163 - I think!

Hello - I missed you all last week, but had to step back and rest. Busy old week, you know the story but here's a quick reminder * Saw Consultant = things being done = positive.  Didn't have minor op in the end = Doctor no3 disagreed with Docs 1 & 2.......oh well!

Ended up having a week of Not so Good Zoe = Not so Good & So Tired Zoe this week!

Anyhoo you're here for the desk and as always it's tidy, but even more so because I was the lucky girl to win the gorgeous Bling Bin from The lovely Jan aka Lunch Lady Jan


All my bits and bobs, like pencils, pokey tools, scissors & stuff that normal stays on my desk are now housed in their oh so pretty new bling bin hanging off the side of my desk. How fab does that look!

Here's what's on the desk -




My latest Smash* pages in the black book, dedicated to all things craft. So this is just a selection of my Some Odd Girls images that I've been colouring over the last week or so. I finally finished the last one yesterday so I stuck them all in yesterday evening and left the book there to dry.  I did show a sneaky peek of the page layout in the post before this one.

That's it folks, me done, I'm off get my jobs sorted before nipping next door to have my brows tinted and my nails faked!  So handy having a Beautician living next door. Bit of a pampering never hurt anyone I say.

Pop over to Julia's to share in the wonder of the desk hopping world wide!

I'll be back later, with perfect nails, groomed brows and that all important cup of coffee.

Take care Zo xx

Oh wow, your colouring is amazing!!! Stunning work!
Oh and by the way, thanks for your visit and those weird tweets are certainly not from me!! I never use my Twitter account really.... someone else told me already, wished I knew how to sort it out, I may just have to delete the whole account and start again or something...

Hey there! Nice to see the bin being put to such good use!! It sort of matches whatever that machinery is hiding under your desk, lol :)
have a lovely time getting pampered, the brow tint sounds interesting but I couldn't cope with false nails!!

The gal who cuts my hair has been in the hospital and is on bed rest for about 4 weeks. I'm dying here (grin), since I keep my hair shorter than short. You are one lucky gal. And lucky in your recent win, too. Happy WOYWW from # 1.

trisha too said...

Well I hope you're feeling better, that pampering surely helped--next door, no less, how great is that???!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Having your nails faked! That cracks me up. I'm seriously thinking about getting a fake nail. Just one! I have one nail that is damaged to the quick and catches on everything. A nice fake nail on top would solve that. For some reason the idea of getting them all done to protect the one doesn't appeal to me. Yeah, color me odd like your odd girls. I love them and they look good in a big collection like that. They look like they would be fun to hang out with.

Anne said...

love the tidy bin from LLJ I would so have loved to have one. Sorry you have not been so good - hope you have a better week ahead. Those pages are brilliant. Thanks for sharing. Anne x

Di said...

Hope the tlc went well - and I agree that toffee papers can also be a good use for your beautiful bling bin. I love mine - ain't LLJ clever

Happy WOYWW! Di xx

Darnell J Knauss said...

I've done all the fairy jobs that needed doing around the estate, so I can sit back and go snooping! Thanks for coming by to visit me earlier!

I'm glad you got some much-needed pampering, and I hope the doctors can all put their heads together and agree soon! Darnell #34
