Week 50 WOYW Monday

I have to say that not pouring over the computer, for a week, has really helped my back but then I realized that I am away for this week and only just back for next ....and I have not really got any further with my project for the following week....yikes ... trust everything to go chaotic at the wrong time.

I am setting this up to appear on Wednesday ...with a little help from a friend lol and I will understand if you don't leave comments as I wont be able to visit your blogs this week ... I just felt I had to post along with the rest of you all .... normal service will resume next week.

My desk has new stash on it ...yeah ...a little of this and that ... including some TH.This spend is due to a mystery windfall ...a little one ...not enough to make a difference to a credit card or ???? ...but enough to spread some joy....so we all had some stash and this is mine.
Where did this come from? ...well this is what happened ... I went to the bank to shut some accounts that were donkey years old and had the odd fivers still sitting there and I found that one had a little bit more than I thought it had...... result lol . I have been feeling so down not having money I could just fritter and have fun with ...and then there it was. Even DS is getting something he and Emma wanted ... more about that later.

See you in a week,
Take Care xx

aaawww - so happy for you and your windfall... sadly i have no bank account that will be rewarding me like that - but good on you - your stash looks scrummy and so does Jays, which she said you'd treated her too. You are very kind and generous and i'm so glad it came to you... love the TH stuff you got.

Hope you are having a great time and catch up with you soon - and don't worry - we don't all fail to leave comments just cos you're not here to leave them for us...
