WOYWW 157 ...

I am sitting here writing this blog post very early Wednesday morning, the day after the Queen's Diamond Jubilee four day celebrations, thinking that another 4 day holiday would be nice!   My desk is as excited as I am , still tidy and neat ready for WOYWW hosted by the now tanned Julia!
I managed to get up to London for the celebrations on Monday, and got to stand amongst the crowds in The Mall cheering and waving my proverbial flag ( I forgot to take one! along with my camera! doh! used my phone which ran out of battery!  ) and watching the concert! It was a fantastic day! Never mind the aching feet or sore throat from cheering, we bopped and danced amongst the best of them to the sounds of Tom Jones, Kylie, Madness, and Paul McCartney! Perfect! Back to reality the rest of the week :((  A big thank you to The Queen for giving us a glorious 4 days!


My desk is still perfectly tidy, ( evidence of no work done at all! and I got my gorgeous hand drawn ATC from Rachel, absolutely gorgeous, thank you :))).



I am continuing the celebrations from the weekend here with a little regal blog candy, join in and enjoy it a little more....
I hope to get round to a few desks later today, but work will be beckoning....time for another holiday? next week perhaps... am liking these long public holidays!!
Have a great WOYWW day
Hugs

I watched on TV, which was harder to find over here in the US. But I'm British through and through, so I loved it all. That flag was perfect and so is the ATC that used the stamp I saw in your giveaway post. I'm in LOVE with that stamp. Happy WOYWW from #4.

#31 Wishing you a creative day. Thanks for sharing the adorable ATC, what fun it has been. Lots of variety and super inspiration.
I've watched CNN on the Jubilee, 4 days of celebrating would be wonderful. Enjoy 157 and have a lovely week.

traveling all the way from Belgium to attend the Jubilee wasn't an option, but we did watch it on television. It was great!
And that atc you received is gorgeous. Hope there will be some action at your desk this week ;)
have a happy one,

Joanne said...

Love your ATC. One clever lady there to have made that. I think the Jubilee was done just for London because nothing happened around here apart from an old man who put a union jack up upside down der!! Happy woyww.
Hugs Joanne xx

Redanne said...

Oh how I envy you your trip to London, must have been fantastic. I would love to have gone but wonky knee and all that doesn't allow. The ATC you received is gorgeous. Hope it won't be too long before we see a 'creative', not messy desk again. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #24

Dallying Debz said...

Lucky you for being given a beautiful handrawn ATC. Really gorgeous and I'm quite jealous of that clean desk! That's my task for today :)

nerllybird said...

But did you remember an umbrella?? Fancy having no camera, lol - but thank goodness for phones! Well done for making it up here, I was too timid to brave the crowds.

I managed to miss posting last week - would love to send you an ATC or even swap if you're up for it. Please let me know either via my blog or at hsalthouse@yahoo.com. Thanks!

I have to ask, as I pondered it several times while watching the concert, what was it like trying to get home? I was imagining scenes like you see in Japan with people trying to get on the tube :)

Gorgeous ATC, really lovely :)

Glad you had a good time in London. I'm already thinking about 15 years time and the 75th Jubilee. It could happen!

Thank you so much for popping my ATC on your desk. I feel very honoured. Thank you.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh Jennie I would trade the tan to have been with you...Mr D has a huge fear of such crowds so we dont do 'em...but my word, it must have been wonderful, what great memories !

Hi jennie fabulous ATC and what a tidy desk. I never managed WOYWW due to the desk and floor being in need of a tidy up before my next project x

It must have been marvellous to be part of the celebrations in London, Jennie, but I had great fun watching it all on TV with a grandstand view from the recliner! Love the ATC you're received.

My computer gave me fits all weekend -- right now I'm at work trying to do a bit of catch up.

I watched the Queen's concert and really enjoyed it. Not so much other coverage here in the US.

The ATC you received looks great!!

Happy WOYWW
