Tidy table

I know I had said I was going to tidy my desk yesterday but, with Alyssa coming round last night, I never got round to it. I decided to get to it this morning and as well as my desk, I tidied and sorted the bookcase too. It took me the best part of the morning and it's lovely to have it done.
My "view" when I'm at my computer. The expedit bookcase (from Ikea). I love this bookcase, it's the perfect size for scrapbook albums and papers
Another area cleared but still lots more to do. Claire assures me she is going to sort/tidy her room over the weekend as she has 3 days off - I'm going to hold her to that!! I won't take photos (or not to put on the blog at any rate! I imagine you can guess why :o( )
Ironing to do and dishes to wash and then I'm going to have a break and read one of my magazines. What will you be doing this afternoon??

Last night

I told you I was babysitting last night :) and I just wanted to share a few photos of this beautiful little girl! She is the sweetest little thing and I love getting a chance to look after her. Unfortunately, the reason I got to look after her wasn't quite as nice - her Mummy (Theresa) and Daddy (Will) were taking her big brother, Tyler to A&E. He had been playing with his Nan (my sister, Kay) the previous night and had landed awkwardly on his foot. Theresa had thought he was okay, but then yesterday she noticed that he wasn't putting his weight on his foot and when he did, it was obviously painful. He was a very brave boy at the hospital and let them x-ray his foot and it looks like he has fractured his big toe :o( He was still being brave when he came to pick Alyssa up and I'm told he got two stickers for being so good :o) When Theresa brought Alyssa round she was fast asleep. We decided to let her carry on sleeping and not disturb her because she'd had her first vaccination in the morning and Theresa said she'd been quite miserable. (Photo by Emily)
Emily was desperate to have a hold and eventually I had to give in and let her have her turn ;o)
Isn't she the cutest!
When she woke up, and after she had a bottle, she was smiling and "talking" to me. So precious (photo by Emily)
A little bit later and we got a big yawn! She did actually stay awake after that until Theresa, Will and Tyler got back to pick her up then it didn't take too long for her to fall asleep in her Mummy's arms.
