What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - The 70th Birthday One

Evening Everyone,

This has got to be the fastest post ever because I have only a few minutes to spare. It's been a bit of a whirlwind day because, as many of you will know, it's my birthday, and there's been a lot of celebrating going on. But I just had to participate, however late, with Julia's WOYWW, over at The Stamping Ground, so that I could thank everyone who has sent birthday wishes. They've turned what could have been the most depressing day - 70 seems so ancient - into a not so bad after all.

So it won't take too much guessing to work out what was on my desk today.
These are the beautiful handmade cards I've received from some very talented crafters - many of whose desks frequently appear on WOYWW.

Not from a crafter but stunning nonetheless so I thought I'd share them with everyone.

Aren't they gorgeous? They're from my son, his wife and daughter. They know me so well because down the side of the box they arrived in was a little surprise.

Belgian chocs. A lovely treat for someone who really shouldn't!

That's me for today. I said it would be quick. The day is running out fast so I'll be along tomorrow to check your desks and leave as many comments as I can.

In the meantime, hope you've had a very happy WOYWW and I wish you all a very good week ahead.

Phew - you were OK with the card, I think we ought to be proud of our age, all that life experience and hoards of memories. So glad the day turned out better than anticipated. Love and hugs. Thanks for the visit BJ#4

When we were young, 70 did seem ancient, but it doesn't now, and you and Alan both totally belie your ages anyway, so no matter. Just happy happy days. xxxx

Hi Elizabeth, it's funny how our perception changes, as Julia said. i can remember at 15 thinking 40 was positively ancient! Glad you had such a fab day.Love & Hugs, Shaz #18 XxX

Yes, but you're 70 on the outside and in your 20's on the inside - you are such a young person in outlook, it comes over whenever you speak. Those cards are gorgeous as are the flowers!
