When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

WOYWW 166 - new goodies

Hello everyone - well a rather later-than-normal post from me, but I know you'll forgive me considering it's the school holidays.  And that means I get to sleep in late.  On one hand it's annoying as things just don't get done, but on the flip side it means I get to sleep and let my body recover and after the last few months I need it. Am hoping this spell of being able to sleep as long my body needs will help and see me getting back to the brighter bubbly self!

Right desk, not much creativity going on, but there are new goodies - 

Close up of goodies

Don't forget to pop over to the Queen of all Desk's Julia's to join in the fun.

I'll leave you with a photo of my boy, Keagan and a rather yummy pudding we both sampled on our weekend away - 

It's an Eton Mess, and yes, we had one each! 

Take care Zo xx

Happy WOYWW. You are lucky in that you can sleep. One of my main issues is that I cannot stay in bed for long, as it makes my pain worse. Cannot believe you had an Eton Mess each!! Ali x #81

It does us all good to allow our bodies to recharge the batteries from time to time to do it while you can. :-)

That is the biggest Eton Mess I have ever seen!! I'm impressed that you both had one each..and you look so tiny. How do you do it??

I'm glad that you are finding time to recharge your batteries - let's hope it helps you regain your spring :)

It won't be long before we meet, I promise. Perhaps Julia and I can come more over your way to save you travelling?

Wow! That's a dessert! Your desk might lack creativity but it is very tidy and ready for you when you do get creative again. That will probably be soon judging by your new goodies.

It's always nice to have new stash to play with. Enjoy yours.
I wonder whether you managed to eat all of that Eton mess. I'm not sure I could but I'd have given it my best shot!

I have blog candy on offer, so pop over and sign up for a chance to win if you are interested.

It's only 10:30 a.m. here but that pudding looks good enough to take a dive in...... I'm so ready for lunch!

Our bodies let us know when they need a break, don't they. I've gotten real good the last two years to listening to that. Take care of yourself.

Yesterday was my blog anniversary - candy will be announced soon. As part of the candy I'm offering up something made by me -- so come visit and cast your vote (if you've already been - thank you. I'm trying to visit everyone this week so haven't checked in on my comments lately).

Yay for new goodies! Have you used your Epiphany Crafts tool yet? I have that same one and also a button shaped one. I need to remember to use them more often!

Your boy's treat looks fabulous...huge and fabulous!!!!
