Whats on your Work desk 167

It's that time again, sharing our work desk on a Wednesday.  So what is on mine?  Well, there isn't much crafting going on! 
Yesterday was far too nice to stay in so after the Go-karting we went out on the boat to try and see the dolphins jumping and catch a couple of fish for tea.  To finish the evening off my youngest and I had a walk along the beach. 
I love living here when the weather is good, with no hassle travelling.  I must sort out some pictures to share so you can see what I mean.

As I mentioned the desk is not very exciting today, those boxes are filled with yummy card from the Papermill in Aberdeen, mmmmm!  I have a couple of the new Sugar Nellie stamps in the background and an invite to the next show at Glasgow.  The rest is just a mess, still.
Why not pop along to the lovely Julia's blog and check out what other like minded folk are up to?
It only remains for me to say thanks for popping by, have a great Wednesday, I'm off to enjoy the good weather but will be back later to have a hop around. 
Finally I will leave you with this a good friend sent me earlier in the made me smile so I thought I'd share....

AAADD - Know the Symptoms

I will put my hand up - I am an A.A.A.D.D sufferer.
Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.
Somehow I feel better, even though I have it!! Don't laugh it’s not funny, seriously.
Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it manifests itself:-

 I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,  I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.

As I head towards the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I  picked up from the post man earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table, put the junk mail in the recycling box under the table, and notice that the recycling box is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out the recycling first.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the post-box when I take  out the recycling paper anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my cheque book off the table, And notice that there is only one cheque left.

My extra cheques are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the cup of coffee I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my cheques, but first I need to push the coffee aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The coffee is getting cold, and I decide to make another cup. 
As I head toward the kitchen with the cold coffee, a vase of flowers on the worktop catches my eye - the flowers need water.

I put the coffee on the worktop and discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I put the glasses back down on the worktop, fill a container with water and suddenly spot
the TV remote control. Someone left it on the kitchen table.
I realise that tonight when we go to watch TV, I'll be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table so I decide to put it back where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I put the remote back on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to  do.

      At the end of the day:

      The car isn't washed

      The bills aren't paid

      There is a cold cup of coffee sitting on the counter

      The flowers don't have enough water,

      There is still only 1 cheque in my cheque book,

      I can't find the remote,

      I can't find my glasses,

      And I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today, I'm really baffled because I know was busy all damn day, and I'm really tired.
I don't think I'm that bad as yet but guess it's something to look forwards to.
Mind you there are a few I can hold my hands up to already.  Yikes!

LOL - have you been peeking??? I definitely have AAADD, that's for sure...*sigh* !!

And I'm so envious about you being able to just nip out on a boat. I ADORE going out on small boats, as do my family. I love being on the sea, hours can just pass away. We saw some dolphins in the Moray Firth once when we were up your way. We camped at Stonehaven, went to Dunottar Castle and Aberdeen too - fab part of the world. And Orkney, ooh, one of my fav places ever :)
Hugs, LLJ #74 xx
