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 364 - 7th Anniversary.

Hello fellow desk dashers - it's the 7th anniversary of this desk sharing malarky and you can find all the details and the desks over at LLJ Fabric Frenzy

Now I'm sadly not taking part in the swap as I've not been so good and haven't made anything. I've not done much crafting other than a spot of crochet while resting. The window desk is bare (well there's a WIP I can't share that's been sat there for weeks) but I did snap the right side for you.
There's the pens & trays of pencils. The pencil covered shelves in front of my Ebosser are part of a decorated MDF shelving unit that Debs gave me for my birthday recently. She decorated it beautifully with pencil paper. I'm going to use it to put the pencils or pens I'm using on it so I don't lose the colour combos. At the front are my football sticker swaps for my Euro 2016 Panini sticker book. I only need about 95 stickers to complete now!

As I don't have ATC's to swap I thought I'd share 2 photos with you all. 

The first was taken 26 years ago. It was the first time Bristol Rovers played at what is now the old Wembley stadium. L-R Me, my younger brother Danny, our dad at the back and our friend Paul. 
I've seen Rovers play twice at the old Wembley and twice and the new Wembley. We lost both times at the old one but won both times at the new one!

The next photo was taken recently at a Point to Point meeting where Keagan was working for Team Scott. He works for the Jeremy Scott racing yard where they train both National Hunt and Point to Point racehorses. He's leading up here in the parade ring before a race. 
Professional photographers take these photos. As Keagan was tagged in the photos it meant I got to see it and can share it.
Happy WOYWW everyone. You guys are the best.
Take care Zo xx

Oh thanks for sharing those photos. I love the old one where you were a small football supporter even then!
And seeing Keagan is great. I had not seen any photos of him so didn'tknow what he looks like. Oh, you must be such a proud mum!

I am determined to visit everyone. I have dedicated today to WOYWW. (a freezer meal for hubby I'm afraid!)

Happy 7th WOYWW anniversary

Happy 7th WOYWW to you too!! It's been fab getting to know you through the desks, Zoe and I'm even gladder that we've met up a few times too. It's always great to see what you're working on but I've never inspired anyone's home decor before - that's a first!! But I bet it'll be very elegant. You'll have to send me some pics when it's done :-D

It feels like forever since I visited you, Zoe. In fact, I would have been by sooner, but not long after I linked at Jan's, thunderstorms knocked my power out. To make matters worse, my internet is having a meltdown, and I have to reboot after nearly every person I visit. But I still hope to visit everyone this weekend.

I really enjoyed the photos. You were such a cutie. And of course, I think that horse is incredible, even though I know little about them if they aren't rocking! But it looks so "in shape." I think your son looks in shape, too, and in his element. Thanks for dropping by my place on Wednesday and happy 7th Anniversary from # 5.

April Story said...

I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. I hope you are better soon. Your son is very handsome and that horse is GORGEOUS!
