If it hadn't have been for Julia none of us would be here! What a mad thing to do, but how great that we can get together each week by linking to her blog The Stamping Ground! So, a big 'Hurray!' to Julia and 'Thanks!' too!!!
My desk - 10 minutes ago - we got back about half an hour ago - the coffees are made and I've hopped on here before hubby starts to look at the photos he's taken while we've been at our caravan with my son and grandchildren! 
 What you see here is the mess I left on Friday covered by my trusty pencil case(yes, there is too much in here - I need to take some things out before the zip breaks!!) and my little case that contained most of what I needed this weekend - we had a couple of days before they arrived so if you squint you may see my Tim tag!!!

I now have 5 days to prepare for our France trip and although I may blog between now and Tuesday I won't be here showing my desk for the next 3 weeks.
I have an ATC though (and a couple of spares if anyone wants one) so off now to make my link!

Thanks for looking, Chris

I am thrilled that Julia has brought us together. You have been such a wonderful friend, and you have NO IDEA how much I have learned from you.

I will miss you, dear friend. Have a fun, SAFE trip, and come back with loads of photos and tales.

Thanks for visiting me already. Happy, happy 6th WOYWW anniversary from #1.

That is a cute little pencil pouch, do loosen it up before the zip breaks! It is too cute to lose. Is your Tim Tag under the pouch? So much so see on your desk as you dash from one place to the next. Happy travels! Judy #73
