What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday - Week 640

Afternoon Everyone,

Today began with me having the best of intentions to write up this for WOYWW and have it posted early, just for a change. All looked hopeful too.  I was up early to make sure our grandson was also up, fed and watered to be off out early to attend a job interview at 9am. I thought, once he'd gone, I'd be able to get down to writing  I figured without Murphy's Law stepping in to intervene. 

Just after breakfast disaster struck. Alan had a fall. He's now covered in scrapes and bruises. We're now waiting for a paramedic to arrive. There's a long wait; the ambulance service is busy.  

So, as I'm nowhere near the craftroom, no desk shot to show you. Instead, here's a pic of the stamp organisation.

There's still more stamps to file but I've run out of boxes for now. I've introduced colour coding to help with identifying the categories, e. red = Christmas, yellow = spring, etc. Seems I have a lot of Christmas themed stamps. 
Another urgent job done. Ripe fruit waits for no one. The blackberries are the happy result of garden neglect. As we've been unable to tend to cutting back, the brambles have just kept growing and fruiting. I've made a few apple and blackberry crumbles for dessert with this unexpected bounty.

And that's all I have to show - not much at all really - but here's the now obligatory kitty pic. 
She has her very own penthouse suite and she loves perching there, just watching what the crazy humans get up to. 

Update as of 2.55pm. Someone from the Ambulance Service rang to apologise for the delay, asked after Alan and how he was now. No change. Then advised me to ring 999 if he got worse. So we are still waiting.

Further update: our grandson got the job. He's cock-a-hoop! Starts on Monday.

I will try my best to visit you all and leave a comment. Needless to say, that's dependent on events. 

Take care and stay safe.

Oh Ellie - please give Allan our best wishes. I hope he is not too battered and bruised when they eventually come to check him over. Well done to your Grandson - a lovely feeling to succeed and well done you for making sure he was there on time! Your fruit harvest looks fab - I need to get out and pick blackberries. xx Jo

Oh no, talk about a life in the day. I hope you aren’t too exhausted and Alan isn’t too uncomfortable, poor chap, I think falling must be a scarey thought after last year, I do hope the paramedics were able to get to you by now. Huge congrats to your grandson, so good for the confidence a d social life! I know you think the stamp storage shows a lot of Christmas, but look again…I think your spring outlook wins hands down and says stacks about your outlook. Love to you both, don’t worry in the least about visiting, but please let the grapevine know how the Management is doing. Xxxxx

Thanks for your visit yesterday. I’m sorry to say I was head down sewing all day so I didn’t manage one visit so I’m getting round my favourites before I get back in my sewing room this morning.
I really hope they eventually turned up to check Alan over and he’s much better this morning. Sending you both much love.

Oh I do hope Alan is now OK and that he managed to get properly checked over Elizabeth. Congratulations to your grandson on his new job. The stamp storage is looking great. Good idea to colour code. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #6
