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.

Well I've been missing and haven't posted since 1st July! I've taken a step back, rested and relaxed. I spent time starting a few projects just for me. And I tidied my craft room. Throwing out 3 bags of rubbish. I gave away some stuff too. Will share some pics of that another day as I'm here ready to share my desk for the wonder that is WOYWW with our leader Julia

My desk is a little different - 

 As you can see there's no work going on as my Mr Baxter decided he would like to watch the world go by!
We are listening to the cricket today. England in the Ashes. I'm hoping to get some work done!!
Take care Zo xx

Sunny salutations to you!

I love this weather, you'll hear no moans about it being too hot from me. I spent yesterday laid out on my lounger in my yard. Radio on. Book in hand. Baxter trying to lick the suncream off my legs! Yep. I had a ball. Better to rest that way than up on my bed. 

So my desk is a mess. Okay some of you will say it's not but it is to me cos you know I do tidy - 

So the right side is a tip. My birthday album is under there waiting for me to finish it off. There's stamps and card and stuff.

Window side there's some print out cards that I designed on Craft Artist Pro. My mate asked me to do them for him. Then there's some pattern colouring. Yep I love them. Nice and relaxing and giving me a break from colouring for my notebooks. 

That's is from me, head over to Julia's WOYWW kingdom to link up and join in. Or just nose. We don't mind!

Today I'm chilling. Few jobs to do. I may sit out later. Or not. But I thought I'd finish this post with this pic of my Keagan out painting my new bench. I bought it with birthday money from my 40th. 
He spent all Monday afternoon out up the garden getting it done for me. It's now in my yard. I'm lucky to have a long garden (my parents are keen gardeners so they look after the grass & flower beds!) and an enclosed yard that's a good size. I enjoy taking Baxter up the garden he loves exploring and chasing tennis balls, but the yard is private and not overlooked as such so it's nice to sit out and read in peace.

Enjoy the weather! Take care Zo xx
