WOYWW... I Did It!!!

...indeedily... I managed to keep my Room of Stash clean and tidy for a whole 3 days... I tidied up the mess on Sunday... it took.... FOUR hours.. but it was worth it 'cos I can now see the floor and have room of the desk to actually spread out a bit! If you have no idea why I am showing you pics of my desk... well, it is 'cos the Chief Superintendant of Desk Inspectors - AKA Mrs Julia Dunnit started this mad crazy Wednesday thing 66 weeks ago and once I joined in, I was totally hooked! Never tried it before?? Pop over to Julia's blog and see what the fuss is about LOL



Desk #2 is equally as tidy and ready for using... but... how long can I keep it like this I wonder??? I reckon it will be a pigsty again later 'cos I have some special projects to play with today... honestly, how difficult can it be to keep it tidy... I will just clean up and put stuff away once I have finished playing... *if you believe that... ;O))*



Anyways... a short n sweet offering from me today and a quick sorry to everyone who I didn't get around to last week... a simple issue with the naffing internet connection made it almost impossible to blog hop... some blogger pages were taking 15 mins to load... worse than the old dial up! I went for a playdate yesterday at The Stamp Attic and... got lost! Seriously... I use a Sat Nav to get me there... Jane (the Sat Nav) is a very nice lady who doesn't shout at me if I go wrong... but... there was a closed road... so I have to take the diversion... and I was sitting there thinking that Jane would find her way out of the diversion... wrong! I ended up doing a big circle and ending up back on the road to the closed road. So, I diverted again... bemused look from the workman standing at the barricade (Ferdy is... erm, very recognisable - once seen, never forgotten) So, off I tootled... Jane took me a different way this time so I was rather relieved that I wasn't lost... until I ended up... yep, you guessed it, back on the same road again. The workman bloke thought it was hilarious that this unusual looking car and rather frazzled driver were there again... Anyways... being a workman type bloke, *and obviously very helpful... not!!!* he came over to Ferdy and asked me if I was lost!!! So I said... "no, I just like driving round in circles" And whizzed off to find a layby to pull into so I could phone Wendy and beg for directions... which I got... and finally got there 30 mins later than planned! Anyways... I am not impressed with Jane, she should have known we were lost ROFL... Cor, there was me saying it was going to be a short post... erm, apologies for going off on a tangent... for a change LOL Thanks for looking... see you in the Blogasphere... TTFN

Tracy Evans said...

Very tidy desk, and you have two of them, lucky you, I would love two desks LOL. Both very tidy, just the way I like it. I love how much stash you have. Stamps on the shelves and so so many unmounted stamps. I love rubber, sorry the rubber stamp kind LOL. Hope you enjoyed your play day at The Stamp Attic, did you see Sue? Tracy Evans x

Joanne said...

I love your craft room, everything to hand when you need it but more special to me if it were mine is, I could jmust sit there LOOKING at all that gorgeous stash. Now this Jane, my DH has one of her clones and I hate her. Strong words but she is useless too. Have you tried Ossy Osbourne????
Luv Joanne xx

Kay said...

Eeek! that looks a bit spooky... like a sort of "ghost town"! I am often lost, well, not really lost, I always know where I am, I'm just not sure where everything else is!

Wipso said...

Might not have been a short post but was well worth the read. I'm sat here chuckling now so thanks for that.

Brenda Brown said...

Tidy desks, not for long I bet. I've just cleared the floor and under my workbench but above waist line is horendous. Trouble is everytime I buy something new I squeeze it in somewhere till I am at bursting point. Oh well I'll leave that for another day.
Luv B xxx

Wendy said...

I would have panicked seeing such a tidy desk if I had not known where you were, despite our local workmen trying to confuse you........sorry about that :( It's always fab to see you....xx

judith@poppy cottage said...

Very tidy today, Hels! I have Julian Clary on my Sat Nav, he sent me into Stoke on Trent Railway Station car park by mistake once instead of up the M6, I was not happy! Still, he has a funny turn of phrase, and makes me smile, so I usually forgive him, how sad is that! Judith xx

Sue said...

Alix said...

Phree said...

Wow, both desks look so tidy.. methinks it's time to get some stash out and make them look more like home again [grin]

* Shaz * said...

Well done must have been a mammoth task to clean all that lot... have fun making it messy again xxx

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Humm - again with the Service Unavailable messages. Is it just me (or non-Blogger people) who are having trouble today? I am seriously loving your stamp display - it's like art that you can rearrange every day. Somehow the CD cases of clear stamos don't have the same artistic appeal LOL!

It looks practically brand new!!!

Diane said...

Very impressed with your stamp storage binders. Are they purchased or made by your own fair hand. I have mine in a box with dividers at the moment, but not sure it is working for me really. How did you do yours?

Twiglet said...

So so tidy over there!!! Bet you will need your satnav to find everthing now!!

Aisling said...

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I came by earlier and saw nothing. BOY am I glad I returned. I'm marking this date on my calendar because not only did you have possibly the cleanest TWO desks this week, you had the funniest story. Poor Jane may have to go back to the manufacturer to have her information updated. STILL LAUGHING HERE!!

Doone said...

ah you have given me the perfect excuse for driving from tourouzelle to calais via Lorient again next year - John (my tom tom ) told me to - would you argue with John Cleese?

Dx

Heather x said...

OMG I am laughing so hard I can't see what I'm typing! That always happens to me, you'd think that a satnav would know when there's roadworks...well in my opinion, they should!
You go girl! What a great job at tidying and keeping it tidy :)
*hugs* Heather x

Esther said...

Crikey - you did tidy!! Really ought to make it my job for the weekend - if only, like you so I can make it messy again !! Happy WOYWW...Esther xx

Piddawinkle said...

funnily enough i asked my OH if we should get a sat nav for the car, but he said I know where I work and where my family live and have a funny nose that can ferret out crafts shops hiding from me, so why would I need one, grrr now I think i need one and he is just trying to ruin my fun, love the tidy area would love to come and mess it up for you

Daniele said...

wow what a tidy space Hels...perhaps you should post another pic tomorrow just incase it was a fluke
hugs

JoZart said...

Oooh er Ooooh er! are you going for a record? What do you hope to achieve (or not achieve) as the case may be? It looks beautiful though I MUST add! well done.
Thanks for the laugh re the sat nav... I'll have to introduce Jane to mine... Naggy Aggy!

Becky said...

It's not that the desks are too tidy, they are just waiting to be covered in ink and stamps and trad tan paint!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

oh wow! amazing! and amazing too how quickly they get messed up, isn't it? good thing it's not "what's on your floor wednesdays" because sometimes that's where all my mess is!

Sid said...

Great space Hels !!

Neet said...

Shoot Jane and adopt Bruce(he's our Aussie sat nav guy)
Am impressed with your tidy deskS but wonder what they are like now? Does you good to have a tidy up - helps one find things LOL.

Sarpreet said...

jonaks said...

Cardarian said...

Oh tidy today - good girl! Sat navs are tricky sometime - ha, ha they have their own mind - I wonder what Jane was thinking!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Michellee said...

I love your blog...Can't get over how tidy your desks are... Would love to go and play in your fun room...
Blessings,

Sunshine Girl said...

Wow very tidy desk there - nice to see that you, eventually, had a nice play day out! enjoy messing up your desk again.

Chrissie said...

Well... you get to be milk monitor for week and give out the pencils.
This is too tidy for words.
Glad you got to your destination eventually... we had a similar episode not long ago where the SAT NAV lady wanted us to go where the road was clearly impassable due to workmen!
Hey HO!
Chrissie

Ciara said...

Tidy is good once in a while but we all not it's not a natural state to be in!!

Thanks for the nosey!

Nikki said...

Your space is very tidy and all those wooden stamps it's like moveable art :)

butlersabroad said...

I'm seriously betting that as today is Friday your desk no longer look like that photo! And I love all your stamps, it's an amazing collection and probably requires separate household insurance!!

Hugs
Brenda

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm so late that I'm guessing it's not really as tidy as that any more. Unless you've moved into a hotel for a week - nice thought of a play date at The Stamp Attic - did you tidy up before you came home?!!

nerllybird said...

Ooh, lookit you with your tidy desk(s). Would love a rummage thru those boxes of stamps I can see on the shelf!

Morti said...

Ok, I'm intrigued - what is Ferdy? yes I know he's a car I mean what make/model? By the name, my heart wants to say a distressed Beetle but I think that's my own wishful thinking/penchant speaking
