woyww....it's a mirage!

Hi, now for those of you who regularly visit my blog on a Wednesday, for What's On Your Workdesk, you are seeing things! This is not my desk... this is someone else's!! I mean how could it be so tidy? Where are the bottles, and the bits, what is that wide open space where there should be just a great big mess? That's my desk! I haven't tidied it away just for the photo , I just haven't created much in the last few days, just been away from the desk, and busy doing paperwork..yuck! for those of you who have spotted the mini sewing box, it was a pressie to myself last week :))
Please excuse me if I don't comment on some of your blogs, as blogger has taken to deleting my comment before I have even put my name to the page! It just won't let me comment, and I am more than surprised it even lets me post!! lol If anyone can enlighten me as to how to stop this...please let me know! I am getting angry with it now! grrr
Anyway , if you fancy seeing the wonderful creativity that is on a hundred or more creative desks pop over to the wizard of words that is Mrs Dunnit's own desk!
Have a very happy day!
Hugs

I know that Internet Explorer and Google Chrome are causing major bugs...try switching browser to Firefox - might help. have a good day anyway...Thanks for the peek! Sarah (at 11)

Sid said...

I am also having the same problem....most annoying !!

Helen said...

Are you going to use the sewing box for dewing things or something else? Your room looks mighty tidy indeed, today! Wish mine did...

Chrissie said...

Some people trying to visit my blog with some particular browsers just find that it disintegrates into a mass of purple... not very attractive and very frustrating.
I can only admire your tidiness!
Have a great day.

Nice sewing box - what are you going to use it for?? I'm rather taken with the metallic (?) cake stand in the background, very smart!

I have a dark wood version of one of those (with no memory of how long I have had it or where I got it from) but I do love it - mine is used for crafty stuff - my indian inks and pastels and some sticker sheet thingies and bulldog clips (mini ones?!) It had to be repaired when my toddler snapped a bit off (I may be coveting yours in the lighter wood........)

Blogger does what it likes when it likes, bit like computers! LOL!!! Enjoy WOYWW! I remember my Nan having one of those sewing boxes....memories again...lovely!

Spyder said...

oho fancy that! Snap! I did a bit in the garden, someone else's garden.
anyway, don't get on with either Internet Explorer or Google Chrome at all. and some folks can't get into my blog, but maybe that's a blessing, might drive them mad! Happy WOYWW

Blogger..only works when it wants to and I think it lost its MOJO too. SOOOOOOOOOOO Frustrating.Don't now have patience to relearn ways with Firefox, maybe this winter.
Love the little sewing box, Have a great WOYWW

Blogger makes me crazy - But I can see your desk so it's all good ... for ME! :)

That photo looks very old-fashioned, like it was snapped in "olden times" I ust love the vintage feel of it, even if it really is modern. Of course it could be the rubbish calibration on my monitor...

Fabulous desk. I am going to print out the picture and put it above my desk to inspire my tidiness.

As to the commenting, I had the problem and this worked: first, sign out of google. Close and reopen your browser. Then log back into google (or blogger, whatever) but don't let it remember you. Ridiculous, but it did work. Hope it helps you out.

Deanna Cosgrove said...

I was having a problem too. And I did the same thing as the above blogger mentioned, signed out. Then, when signing back in I 'unchecked' the box that said 'keep me signed in'. Worked like a charm!

OK, so who are you and what have you done with Jennie????!! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the sewing box.

Sunshine Girl said...

Lovely tidy desk there - I love that sewing box - my comments are playing up too!

veronica said...

have had the same problem Jenny, drove me nuts! Signing out didn't work, so in the end have downloaded google chrome, which i just use for blogging, and it has worked so far..............

Carola Bartz said...

I've had some problems with comments as well, so I guess you can't do anything about it except waiting it out and hoping for the best.

Elizabeth said...

Hi and happy WOYWW day to you. Can't help you with the comment thing except that you follow Sarah's suggestion and change browser for a while ... worked for me a few months ago though I was able to go back to Internet Explorer eventually. It's odd that you can post but not leave comments. I have a similar sewing box which I've had for years ... very handy. Hope you have a good week. Elizabeth x #75

Carolyn Phillips said...

So many people seem to be having problems with blogger. I have one friend who has migrated to wordpress because of all the problems. Hope you manage to fix it soon.

Blogger does seem to be having a hissy fit at the moment - that sewing box looks like it could be ripe for some altering.

Rumtruffle said...

Blogger is just doing its own thing at the moment, goodness know why!
So Jen what you going to do with that sewing box? I feel a workshop coming on ;D
Have a lovely week

I use firefox and am having constant problems with Blogger. It started nearly a year ago and I've tried on various browsers. Firefox is the best imo for everything. I get problems with blog pages not loading at all (sometimes up to 20 attempts!), and when they do, it's extremely slow, and the pictures don't load properly, or half the stuff (like followers, blog archives etc. etc.) either don't load at all, or don't work properly. I'm heartily sick of this and cannot think why they can't sort themselves out and give us the decent service we used to have before. What are they playing at? The trouble is, there's nobody to contact about it. If you click on a "contact" button all you get is forums. Useless.

Happy WOYWW.

Love the little sewing box - and love the fact that it was a pressie to yourself.

Thanks for sharing.

I also use Firefox, and providing you keep clearing out all the temporary files, things seem to work reasonably well. I also like the semi black and white picture this week.

fairy thoughts said...

I dont think anyone know why blogger does that . I had this problem the other night ... for no reason, now it is fine.
my theory; all computers are male. . they can only cope with one thing at a time! (dont tell my husband I said that, it makes him mad)

Sam said...

I too have had that problem _ bery annoying.
That desk is far too tidy for you, I presume normal service will be resumed next week! LOL!

Neet said...

I totally agree that computers are male. There would be half, if any, of the problems if it were female.
Nice tidy desk Jen. Hope you get sorted soon.

Julia Dunnit said...

Paperwork. Argh. Been trying to ignore that this week, but even DH has started to notice the pile now...resistance is futile!
Are you sewing AS WELL as everything else now then? Good grief. Show us your top sellers from APally will ya, feel like I'm missing out!
