WoYwW.. and a trip to Greece...

I truly wish that I could say that I was on my way to Greece, flying out today, luggage, sunhat and bikini ( ok, swimsuit, for those that know me..lol) in hand, but sadly I am not! But I did visit Greece early this week courtesy of my daughter, (of whom I am very proud), as she has landed her first ,just off the West End, play as Assistant Stage Manager!  She is working on the Willy Russell Season at Trafalgar Studios, and Hels and I went to see Shirley Valentine on Monday which was press day, and rubbed shoulders with famous people! It is a fantastic monologue with Meera Syal, who hops on a plane to Greece! I would definitely recommend it if you fancy a day out in London. But back to the day in hand, and I have been very busy this week, stirring up a surprise for you... All will be revealed at Midnight on Saturday, so watch this space! The state of my desk is how I woke up to it this morning, and frankly it is MESSY! I have a couple of ideas in my head and no art made done this week yet! I have rather a busy day today, I think!
If you have no idea what this is about then pop over to Julia's desk HERE, and see what this lovely lady has done to the world of blogging!!
Hope to find time to pop round to yours....
Happy Creating!

Gosh Jen, why wouldn't you be proud of her, she's doing so well. And of course, the added bonus of the odd press night - I bet Ms makes a good SValentine. Your desk looks fab to me - and you still have room to put something down, so ttoal push back not yet achieved! Hope you get time to create.

Oh man, I saw open scissors. You are a dangerous woman indeed. I, too, am guilty of open scissors. Yeeks! Hey...I want to rub shoulders with famous people. I've only ever met the guy from Napoleon Dynamite. Oh no, one time I WAS on the same airplane (at the same time) as Keanu Reeves. Cool huh?
