WOYWW 669: Starting the Countdown

 The weeks are coming round ever more quickly now and it's unbelievably time to join in again with WOYWW and show off our desks with Julia at Stamping Ground.  I was thinking of Julia on Sunday as I know that it was likely to be a difficult day for her with her Mum's funeral being so close to Mother's Day.   

I admit that I took my desk photo yesterday afternoon as I was getting ready to choose papers and toppers for my #dailychallenge2022 pages.  This journal is not as thick as the last one was at the same stage as I have kept the bulk down in what I add to the pages.

I found a pad of preprinted toppers which I have been using recently.  Eva came over to craft yesterday afternoon for the first time since I had Covid but the shed has been cleaned and well aired out in the week and a half since I went back to work.  
She was working on Groovi projects as you can see.

This time in two weeks the Easter holidays will have begun and with clocks springing forward last weekend in the UK 2022 seems to be whizzing by.  As there won't be a meeting after work today due to Y5 and Y7 residential visits I will try and get round to everyone this evening.  Happy WOYWW everyone.
