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 209 - blue hair in the paper version!

Good afternoon everyone. Now I'm going to apologise for the following picture heavy post but I think you'll enjoy and have a giggle at what I have to share! As always I'm here to link up with Julia -The Stamping Ground to share our desks. Here we go - 

So I took these from my chair - I've had to buy a few more trays as my pen collection has grown!

Got a few bits out as using them a lot.

I have this daft dog on my lap too. Baxter loves to cuddle up.

Plenty of colour options

The window side, some colouring projects there.

Now woken up who can resist this little face.

Now if you know me then you know I am a huge Bristol Rovers fan. Well my boys have reached Wembley in a play off final on Sun May 17th, just a few days after my 40th birthday (14th) and the day after the WOYWW crop! I wasn't going, couldn't afford it really and was worried if I wouldn't cope, but family funded our trip and I have bought a wheelchair space for me and seat for Keagan next to me. I feel if I use my chair all day I will manage. The thought of potentially 60K people and me on sticks is a no-no!

This will be our view at Wembley. Taken from the Wembley website. What a view!

Now in my excitement I tweeted that I would dye my hair blue for the final. It was picked up and quoted in the Bristol Evening Post. A friend who lives in Bristol sent me this photo! (You may have to zoom in)

Guess I better dye my hair blue then! SO those of you at the crop on the 16th will get to see it in real life but I will share lots of photos.
That's me. Take care Zo xx

Oh how lovely getting to follow your local team, my DH is a nottm forest fan but he did mention about your team at Wembley.
Hope you have a great day out and looking forward to seeing a photo of the blue hair.

Great that you two can enjoy the game together. Not a fan of any team so I can safely say good luck to yours :)

Oh and cute dog too. Not sure about the blue hair but then again why not? See you at the crop.
Happy late in the day WOYWW!

Oh is my fav colour ;-) How exciting. I went rainbow colours once to raise money for charity and loved the responses...the headline in the paper for that was 'Childminders streak for charity'. I guess the pic wasn't quite what they expected lol.
I am planning to send ATCs to those going to the crop so you can have one on the day and am sending a stamped addressed envelope for anyone wanting to swap with me but please don't feel you have's just what I am wanting to do as I am unable to go this year.
