First, a big Thank you to all of you who left a London comment two weeks ago! We had a wonderful time, although despite having a travel pass seemed to do an awful lot of walking which unfortunately set my gout off on the day we came home!! I'm fine now, took the tablets and had a few days rest at the caravan!

Ok, so I'm not showing the wide shot because I think this is scary enough! We came back home and I had a rush to finish a birthday canvas off and the mess around the outside of this picture is …well, frankly, I don't think you could distinguish anything even if I showed you! I can't even show you the canvas until after tomorrow night! Anyway, you wouldn't see my new stamps so well, another Paper Artsy Lynn Perella set that go so well with my other set! Looking forward to using them soon!
Lots of 'stuff' just pushed to the back, one of my 'nearly full' journals and ta da..the stamps!

So time to go and have a nosy look at some of your desks, if by chance you haven't a clue what this post is about check out Julia's blog here

I hope to report on the London visit tomorrow if you'd care to come back! 
 Thanks for looking, Chris

Aw, shame... I'd've liked to see the mess - and looking forward to seeing the canvas once it's been delivered to the lucky recipient, as well as what you get up to with those new stamps!

Horrid thing gout, I have heard that cherry juice is very good, but I think it has to be the 'real' stuff from the health shop that actually does contain cherries. Your desk looks just fine to me, but I would say that, LOL.

Glad your gout has settled down, surprising what a few days rest (and in the caravan - lovely) can do.
Looking forward to seeing your canvas as I am having 'canvas moments' suddenly.
Hugs, Neet xx
