Quiet Week

Hello all.

It's been a very quiet normal week for me.  Back to school and lots of smiley faces.  

After last week's fairly long post with lots of pictures I find myself with very little to say today.
(Those who actually know me may find this hard to believe.)

I went to watch DS play rugby this morning, something I don't do that often, as it is usually raining/snowing/frosty/cold and always miserable.   Anyhoo Mr Clicky persuaded me to go today, and as the sun was out I agreed.  I received much stick from the other parents I hadn't seen for quite some time.    True to form, after a bit it rained a lot and we got soaked.  Typical April weather, sunshine and showers, which is of course, how it should be in April.  When I checked back to this time last year, it was very hot and I got sunburnt!
DS has asked me to tell you that his team won.
The pitch was at the foot of the Malvern Hills.
Around the pitch I found some lovely Hawthorn blossom.
 On the knitting front I really need to pull my finger out and get my jacket finished.  I've only the last bit of one arm to do and then I should be sewing up, I'm boldly going to say it'll be done for next week!

I also cast on for a hat using sock yarn from the stash, another lovely bold colour.
Well that's about it for now I think I told you it was short.  I considered taking part in the Knitting and Crochet Blog Week run by Eskimimi but decided not to.  I'll be watching other blogs with interest though.

As always have a fun week.

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


  1. Well done to your son and his team. I also was going to take part in blog week and then changed my mind, too many real life commitments :(

  2. Same here re the blog week, just didn't feel I could do it justice at the moment.
    That Hawthorn blossom seems very early! I'll have to get out and see if it is out round these parts. We made some wine from it last year and it was ready a few weeks ago. Very nice it is too so we've decided to make some more this year.

  3. I was going to take part as well, then I got a load of work and just knew it wouldn't happen. It's just as fun to read everybody else's anyway!
    Love the colours of your hat. I had to chuckle about the rugby, sometimes I am extra happy to have girls even though boys are lots of fun.

  4. Yes life is sooo busy. But glad you are feeling a lot better to do more now. The Malvern Hills attract lots of rain! Glad DS and his team won their rugby match. dojo xx

  5. I am quite a newcomer to the blog world - just found your blog and love it - full of inspiration

  6. Wow, your hat is going to be stunning with those colorful stripes! Gorgeous!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
