What a week it has been. Not all together a nice one either. On Monday night, a bit before 3am, I woke to some noises outside our bedroom window. I am a light sleeper so was quite startled. The noises got louder and so I realised I had to have a peep out the curtain. I already knew what I was going to see but that never makes it any less scary. I opened the curtain only to startle a young man trying to break into our window, who bolted down the street. I woke my husband and we called the police and they came and looked around, taking descriptions and all that. Unfortunately what looked like a good print did not really lift too well when they came back to do the dusting so our intruder probably will not be caught on this occassion.
Its the most horrible thing, as I've always had a fear of one day looking out a window and finding someone looking back. But also that thought of someone entering the home when you're in there. I'm not sure how successful this person would have been through our locked window beyond the screen but the thought that he may have gotten into our house, our bedroom... where we were sleeping, is a very scary thought. Understandably we have been quite shaken up over the whole experience and I'm a bit paranoid walking around the house and hearing any noise now. Hopefully it all goes back to normal soon as we live in a really nice, quiet neighbourhood so its a shock it happened at all. But I do work in a prison, so I hear these stories every day. I can now relate to all those poor people who have experienced it first hand of what such individuals can do to turn your world upsidedown so quick!
However, I have since had a few bits of good news. I won two prizes this week. One was a random prize draw at From Scrap to Screen, so thank you Shazza and Debi. I also won Dale's blog candy so overall, those little bits of luck have cheered me up a lot. There is also some other good news that I will announce a bit later in the week.
So onto my work area. I have nothing current in progress to share unforunately but I did do a bit of a tidy up with my storage spaces, so I thought I'd share those. Below is my top drawer for my filing cabinent, right next to my computer. I now has my computer paper, photo paper and all my inks and paints. The drawer below it now has embellishments in it but no photo of that one as yet.
Looking forward to coming by and visiting your desks. If you want to see where it all started, head on over to Julia's for a background on WOYWW.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
