We've had another wet and blustery week, in fact at times its been downright miserable. I cheered myself up with a load of wood. Evenings are now warm and cosy but the flip side to this is that too much warm and cosy sends Mr Clicky and me to sleep at 9.00pm in front of the TV.
I've had a weekend of cooking stews, bolognese and things in a pot. Mr Clicky, me and our friends B and S are popping over to France to do some work on our house. After a day's work we need something quick and filling, hence the cooking, the freezer is now full.
Miss Clicky and me went to see Baloo the horse on Saturday morning. The weather was horrible and raining very heavily. We got him in from the field, gave him some food and scraped as much water off him as we could. Miss C decided it was too wet for a proper ride and would just ride him bareback back to the field. I was giving her a leg up ~ no stirrups. First try at a leg up she rose about a foot. "You've got to push me up," she said. "Ok," I said and gave her a jolly good throw. Such a good throw that she went right over and landed on the other side. Third go, just right.
Here he is looking soggy.
Another Cotswold Stone wall. They fascinate me, the lichen must have been there for years.
I bought two Christmas magazines this week. I hardly buy magazines but I do treat myself to Christmas ones.
Firstly Prima Christmas Makes with inspiring Christmas things.
Pretty felt decorations.
I also got the Christmas Ideal Home Mag.....
You may know of my
like obsession with Christmas decorations. I found these in Tesco the other day they'll fit in perfectly with my colour scheme this year.
So that's me for now, I've cast on a sock ~ small for knitting whilst in the car driving through France.
See you next week with a full report.
As always, have fun.
Bye for now............Clicky Needles.
P.S. We haven't abandoned the kids in case you were wondering, my Mum is having a short break at our house.
