I was a birthday girl yesterday so my table has lots of cards and pressies on display as well as the little grey skirt that is nearly finished for M.
I know I still have more to come but thought I would share a few with you.
My books are from Wipso - you know-  the next poet laureate!! (See her lovely poem here!)
We think we will enjoy making sock creatures. She made the fab card too and yes - even put a sock in it ( is she trying to tell me something!!)
I had two fab necklaces, a scarf, perfume, chocs and wine so I am feeling very spoilt.
Do help yourself to a Thorntons before you go!!
The other two pics were taken on Monday - one in the morning and the other in the evening. So nice to see blue sky and sunshine after all the rain.

If you want to join in and show us Whats On Your Workdesk on a Wednesday then pop over to Julia's blog and add your name to Mr Linky's list.
Thanks for calling - hope I get to see a few of your desks when I get back from M's later.

Fab pictures!
We stayed in Wentnor, in a pub called the Inn on the Green, with very friendly landlords. Is that anywhere near you? I looked on the map when Wipso told me where she lived and it was only about 10 miles from her. Is that anywhere near you?

Happy belated birthday to you, happy belated birthday to you. OK you get the picture. Hope it was great. Sounds like it from Wispo's description. I had intended to stop by and visit anyone who left a comment, then it got me confused, so decided to go through the list anyway. (#1)
