This morning I had my breakfast at my desk. I checked my emails, facebook and played a couple of games while I ate my cereal and drank my coffee. After this I went out into the garden. I have decided I want to do two hours gardening whenever the weather is good enough during the summer holidays. This was day three of this regime and I must say the garden looks better for it already.
After my two hours gardening I had a shower then went to the garden centre to buy a new wheel barrow. I've had my wheel barrow for about eight years now, but it's had a flat tire for about the last six of those! I've tried to get John to blow up the tire, but alas, it's still flat. Anyway I now have a new barrow. It's not a traditional wheel barrow, it's more of a big bucket with a handle and wheels. I'm hoping the weather will be good tomorrow so I can try it out.
I digress. Back to my desk. Yet again, no crafting going on. However there are a few things that will always feature on my desk.
I always have the radio remote control close by because I do like to listen to radio two when I'm working (or playing).
My pad and pen are never far away, you never know when you might need to jot down something. It may even be a sketch for a layout - well you never know!
So there's my desk for this WOYWW.
And usually there's a glass of coke. I like my coke flat and at room temperature, so a glass can sit here for quite a few hours (and if I'm honest, I have been known to put a cover over the top and leave it overnight).

Why do phone manuals have to be so big but tell you absolutely nothing about using your phone? Is it just me? I know my darling daughters never open the instruction books for anything technical, but I can't be the only lady of a certain age who wants to know how to use her phone. I spoke to someone yesterday who'd had her phone for seven years, she didn't want to have to work out how to use a new one. Well, if the phone company will give me a brand new phone every year I will gladly take it. I just wish it didn't take me eleven and a half months to learn how to use it. So, I started by putting what I thought was the SIM card into the SIM card slot to find it was a memory card. Well, basically I spent the rest of the day searching the wonderful world wide web trying to find out why the phone wasn't working. Daring husband came home at 7.30 and had it sorted in a second. So, yes, I suppose it is just me. I shouldn't be allowed near anything vaguely technical. However, my new phone is gorgeous.
