Well it turns out that not only did I have a lovely weekend to myself the other week, the boys (Dads and Kids) had a good time on the rugby tour too. When the Gloucester v Exeter match finished ~ Gloucester lost :-( and everyone left Exeter stadium the boys went onto the pitch and had a kick about. Afterwards they went onto Torquay where they stayed the night; tales are emerging of what they got up to, which I probably don't want to know about. They played a midday game on Sunday which they lost, came home and fell asleep.
Back at home and we've actually had a frost. Just the one. It's now turned wet and windy. Really windy.
I made myself a crochet poppy this year, of course I still donated to the Royal British Legion, and we held a silence at school.
I've also been 'buying' things from Tesco Direct. Not really buying because Tesco have their Boost offer on at the moment, meaning that Tesco vouchers are worth double their value in some departments. I save my vouchers for just this occasion, you may remember I got my SLR camera with them last year.
This year a Karcher Window Vac. This is really, really good. You wash down the window with soapy water and the vac sucks all the water off and no smears! Brill.
And also got a new Dyson, as my old one I've had for 15 years. The new one is much more compact, lighter and has such good suction that I had shoulder ache after using it! All the better for not actually costing me any real money. :-)
My blogging has been few and far between of late and I have missed telling you of what I have been up to and reading what you've been up to as well. The internet in these parts has become dreadfully slow and it virtually impossible to use on a Sunday evening which was my blogging time, so I've decided to try another day. Maybe Friday maybe Saturday, we'll see.
As I write this the dog is curled up behind me in his 'bed.' It's an old single duvet folded into quarters, we have to pick up the top layer so he can get into it. If we don't, he stands next to it and whines. Pampered pooch!
Miss Clicky is working at Waitrose whilst studying and two of her shifts are evening ones. She comes home with all manner of reduced items, mostly cakes, buns, and the odd cooked chicken, but other things too. Yesterday it was this Camelia for a bargain 25p.
That's me for now, I'm off to catch up on some bloggy reading with a nice cup of Earl Grey, another one of Miss Clicky's bargains ~ 20p for a box!
Have fun................Clicky Needles.
