Well, it turns out that if you put the iPad down, play less games which are entertaining and fun but suck time into a never ending time vortex, stop oohing and aaahing over beautiful grey cabled jumpers on Pinterest and then try to find the patterns on Ravelry and getting lost for several hours there, you can actually get some knitting done.
Saturday and Sunday morning this week have seen me having a cup of tea in bed (brought by Mr CN) and some Temari Cardi knitting. I was also greeted by a very excited dog.
In days gone by it would have been two little children chucking a book at us and demanding a story. Sometimes they'd climb in, snuggle down and before we knew it, be asleep again. Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh.
That was nearly fifteen years ago. Master Clicky (smaller one of the two) has just picked up his Christmas bike. He's used saved money and we put some in too. He now has legs longer than Mr Clicky and towers over me. It is impossible to get him up in the morning. Miss Clicky is getting University offers.
Where did that time go?
Not that I'm complaining you understand, but if your children are little and cute, savour them. Time will go. Fast.
My Saturday morning (after I'd had a second cup of tea in bed) was spent moving a load of wood.
It was a lovely sunny day, almost springlike. I did try to get Master Clicky to lend a hand but the bike ("did you know the spokes are made in Switzerland?") proved too alluring. The stack always seems to be neater on the bottom! Anyhoo a job done.
And so, back to knitting. A really nice pattern, top down and then into some really easy cables which I'm doing without a cable needle. Rubbish pictures I'm afraid, today is nothing like the sunny day yesterday, we've had low wet cloud and dingyness all day.
I'm rather enjoying knitting again.
Righto, I'm off to do the ironing, not such a mountain today but still quite a lot.
Bye for now.
Have fun..........................Clicky Needles.
