WOYWDW


This is Tractor Ted. My Mum (snagged the picture from yours Muvva!) made him for Sweet Cheeks for his birthdayand he receives lots of attention, due to Sweet Cheeks passion for tractors. In real life, Tractor Ted is about 24 inches high, so you always notice him.

On Sunday, I came rushing in from doing an emergency food shop, (we ran out of milk!!) with bags of hot cross bunnies (didn't forget the milk). As I span round to go back to the car, I caught sight of Tractor Ted out of the corner of my eye, sitting on the sofa. He gave me quite a fright, as I had forgotten he was there. I thought there was a random, stray child sitting on the sofa!

As you can see, my desk is appallingly untidy at the moment. In fact, it looks even worse than this right now. I've not unpacked my stash properly since the move as I know there is another coming. I should put things away as soon as I've finished with them, but obviously that's not going on. This is the only area of the house where this doesn't happen. Maybe I'm rebelling against my own OCD tendencies! And yes, doesn't Sweet Cheeks look pleased with himself!

WOYWW- A small child balancing precariously!
It's very tidy in there.
I think I should start a "Where is your workdesk Wednesday" as it's more appropriate to me!

Such a cute doll your mom made, she must be very creative and talented as it looks expertly done.
As for the desk..well...you have a little kid you can blame it on. lol

Now don't forget that whilst the bail money was paid Tractor Ted has been bound over to keep the peace for 12 months (else he will be back inside sewing mail bags). So no letting him and Sweet Cheeks get up to any mischief. As If!!!
p.s. My desk is very very tidy so you obviously take after 'The Doc.'

I can clearly see I need to prescribe a larger dosage of OCD pills together with a bottle of White Lightning cider for you. It seems to have worked on your Muver !

Andria said...

Yeah, it's not that messy, seen worse, but has the best ornament!! lol.

Tractor Ted is fab...I remember when Michael was little and I quite liked knitting those doll things...I knitted him a huge golfer including clubs...I did Holly a topsy turvy cinderella...your desk looks amazingly tidy compared to mine right now....can't really see any desk for c**p!!

stunning card hun. I always cringe when my toddler runs away with a coloured image. I toy between chasing him and he wrecks it while running then falling or letting him have it with the hope he will get bored and just put it down with no damage.

The doll is hilarious!! Quite a few of my kids toys have given me a scare walking through a room before. LOL And Sweet Cheeks looks like he know exactly what he's doing!! :)
