'craft' desk
My 'desk' is a bit different today and not quite as it usually is... as you can see it's a make shift desk on the corner of the  dining room table taken last night.We are on holiday for the week at a stunning boathouse near Berwick...its on the lakeside in the grounds of a large grade 2 listed manor house/hall and has 300 acres to explore...we've explored about 2!...although HB has been out on the lake on a rowing boat...I watched form the deck! It is so peaceful and quite and just a stunning spot...our nearest neighbours are a large heron who patrols the lake and some ducks! 
lake this morning just after 6am 

The weather has been good so no need to make any use of said desk as yet. This morning its raining and the weathers expected to stay this way the next few days... not that that will spoil our holiday at all. We have planned to go to the coast today...can see us being back early...and maybe making use of my you can see I travelled light marker pens and some stamps/ if I get the opportunity I can have a crafty fix and if not that's OK pressure to do anything in particular; other than to have a relaxing time. I'm sure your desk has a bit more going on. 

Yesterday we had a fab day out at Alnwick Castle and Gardens and looking forward to some more exploring today once HB is up and about 3 hours time... gives me plenty of time to have a good snoop around the other desks this indeed !.
Well despite no desk or work to show I've waffled on again...have fab day and wonderful week and thanks for visiting its much appreciated...hugs...Andrea X
