Today  is "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday", a time for sharing what we are working on at the moment.  Our host is Julia over at The Stamping Ground where we link up.  Above is my workdesk.  I have a stack of 12 x 12 papers on one side, which I have been sorting through to find pages I don't like!  On the other side is a bullet journal I bought at Aldi for £2.99.  I bought it to keep a daily record of my health, diet, mood etc.    I have had a few weeks now of being tired, headachey and a little down.  My husband has said frequently I should keep a food diary (so why haven't I started yet?)

Of course anybody that's ever had a puppy knows they can be tiring, but she is just wonderful :)  You can see her in the top corner of this photograph, which is where I sit surrounded by stuff!  Her second jumper is turning out a big improvement on the first and I have just got to finish the band under her tummy.  I have a book there about the Railway Detective, written by Edward Marston.  Both my husband and I love these books, set in the time when railways were a new mode of transport.  

Finally I am working on a new design for a journal/album, which takes us back to my comment above about looking for pages I didn't like.  The pages I chose all had white backs which made them ideal for my base,  I hate to waste nice paper when I am experimenting. More of that to come.

Finally, finally!  I have been outside with Dolly three times since starting this.  Back in the summer one of my small blue tortoises went missing from around my pond, aided and abetted by one of the grandchildren I suspect.  Since my husband sorted out the plants the other week, I have been trying to find it, the water is so cold I can't keep my hand in it for long, but I have just found it, muddy but whole!  It is the small things that keep us happy:)

Thank you for visiting, Love Angela

My hubby is a big fan of the Railway Detective! He's put it on my Kindle, I just haven't got round to it yet. The jumper for Dolly is looking great, I suspect she's needed it in these chilly temps and storms. That's a great bargain from Aldi but you have summarised why I'm not a journaller, I love the notebooks but can't keep up the writing in them, so I don't bother now, lol!!
Hugs LLJ 3 xxx

Hope the jumper helps Dolly keep warm. well done on finding the tortoise. Helen #2
Little Dolly is coming along fine but the little jumpers will help to keep her little body nice and warm. We have some fleecy jackets for Maisie and Stan as they had a haircut recently just before it started getting might have known the weather changed just after. Wishing you a lovely happy and creative woyww, Angela x16x
Hi Angela, the journal from Aldi is a bargain. I think I would be the same as many others - buy a journal and then not use it, so for now I will refrain, unless I spot a bargain like yours, in which case I will buy one, and put it on a shelf ... and forget about it! Have a lovely week, hugs Heather xx #33

I saw the bullet journals at Aldi too Angela but knew that I would never keep up with yet another one so was good. Glad your blue turtle turned up in one piece. Woof to Dolly and Happy belated WOYWW. Sarah #8

Oh poor you, I hate that feeling when you can’t put your finger on why you feel not quite right. I hope the food diary proves revelatory. I prescribe some sunshine. That will help so many of us, huh. Delighted you found the tortoise, think you’re brave to have tried this early in the year!! I do the same with scrapbook papers I don’t like. It also helps to deliberately mis arrange the pile of papers because then I don’t just use the top ten percent or so when I’m choosing for real scrapbook pages.
