I'm into the third whole day of not being at work. It is lovely, not having to get up at 6.20am, just lying a bit longer and maybe even having a cup of tea and breakfast in bed. I wandered around the supermarket yesterday in a dreamy haze. When the lady at the checkout asked me if I was having a good day, I replied that I was having a very good day and she couldn't dampen my spirits whatever she did.
Over the weekend England beat Australia in the second test of the Ashes series. Me and Mr Clicky sat in the garden in the sunshine listening to Test Match Special on Radio 4. I love TMS and it's slow melodic commentators; Tuffers, Aggers, Blowers, Michael Vaughan, Glen McGrath to name a few. Henry Blofeld is a true gentleman when he takes his commentary position, it's with a comment of "Hello old bean." Glen McGrath, despite Australia's poor performance was impartial and very amusing. I quite often miss the score because I'm giggling at what they're all saying.
Whilst we were sat in the sun Mr Clicky commented it would be perfect if we had a cake. Luckily there was one in the freezer, so an hour later we did.
I had mine with a nice cup of tea and Mr Clicky a chilled cider with lots of ice, which I would have loved but sadly a bit too acidic for me.
The sharp eyed amongst you will have noticed my new mug. It makes me smile every time I see it, yes, Stroud is one of the fashion centres of the world!
On Saturday it was the Stroud Country Show and Mr Clicky, me and DD went for a look around.
There were some very woolly and large Cotswold Sheep; I'm not sure how they see out,
a Belted Galloway
a beautiful Gloucester cow and her calf,
a big black pig ~ sorry, not sure of the breed,
and some pint-sized black and red Dexter Cattle ~ even when fully grown they only come up to waist height.
We reminisced over the vintage tractors, my brother had a Nuffield (dirty red one in the middle) and the first tractor I learnt to drive was a Massey 135 (far left just in the picture) and then decided to come home as the heat was oppressive.
I've got the first job of the Summer Holidays complete, washing the spare P.E. kit from my class. This got done in the last week of the holidays last year because the weather was so bad. This was all in and folded by the time today's thunderstorm came ~ the first bit of rain for 5 or 6 weeks.
Oh! and I've been knitting a bit, I'll show you next time.
For now have fun..................Clicky Needles.
