Lazing Around

I've been having a lovely lazy time.
Staying up and getting up late just because I can!
I thought I should let you see progress so far on the Summer Granny Blanket. After I took the picture I thought it didn't seem like many squares and discovered some more, but you get the idea. The bright green is really fluorescent and there will be some colour combinations I won't be using it in! I've 11 colours altogether so I'm hoping that no two squares will be the same, we'll have to see how big it gets.
I've been to Tuesday morning knitting group, which seems very decadent to me and been making good use of the dry warm weather we're having at the moment, by being in my favourite place with some knitting and listening to music on my new device!!!!
Can you see it?
The Pringles Speaker! They're free at the moment, all you need to do is send off three tear off bits ~ so eat three pots of Pringles, no hardship ~ wait awhile and a Pringles pot speaker will be winging it's way to you. Ok, the music is a bit tinny but good fun nonetheless.
My purple Drops Cardi has grown quite a lot since this picture was taken. I've finished the back, one front and I'm just starting the other. It seems to be flying off the needles, or is that just because I'm not at work?

In the garden the climbing french beans have just started flowering ~ yes I know they're late but I'm pretty rubbish at planting things when they should be ~ these should have purple pods too.
Mr Clicky Needles has this week off work as well, and when he goes back next week it will be in a brand new company. He has got himself a new job! He's very pleased with himself. We've had to wave the company car away and we'll be picking up our new car on Friday.

We're taking DS to see Harry Potter tonight, well me and Mr CN want to see it too which should at least stop DS falling off his bike and skinning his arms, legs and knees. He is covered with bumps and bruises right now.

I've been doing a bit of on-line shopping with all this time on my hands, although I'm not telling you what it is yet, I can't wait for my parcel to arrive.

Righto, need to go, I might even start all the ironing that's piled up from camping, on the other hand.........................

Bye for now.............Clicky Needles.
