WoywW, week 17

Time for What's on your workdesk Wednesday! I have the start of a project lying on my desk, I will hopefully come around to finishing that...
But this evening we have the annual Spring Show at our school so I've been kinda busy! An event where our students get to enter the stage and really perform - no playback allowed! =) It's a blessed mix of all sorts of styles and apart from parents and such we always have old students showing up in the audience. Loads of work with preparations, practising, building the stage, setting lights and putting up curtains (we don't have an auditorium so we use the gym hall) but well worth it cause it's an enchanted evening!!

For those of you that were here last week you will notice the tote that is now filled with all my precious "can't live without-thingies".

Oh, and I just noticed that I have my second stamp-box on the desk as well (one just couldn't handle all the stamped images). What is that doing there??? Well, it's either leprechauns or old age...


Another thing - that is not on my desk but very much in my heart - is the picture of hubby dearest singing at my sister's birthday party. It's my nephew playing (the youngest of her boys) and he really wanted to play something for his mummy so he asked if Chris would sing. They rehearsed for like 5 minutes, that is why he's holding the I-phone (he has the lyrics there hehe)

Love your little heart box. And I remember those days of school plays or even later, when she'd left school, as my daughter started off being in shows as a tiny tot and built her way up to the leaning roll! Fabulous!
