Half Term

Hi there.

I've had a quiet half term.  Me and the dog have had some crunchy leaf walks.
 I tackled a large, overgrown clematis in the garden.   It took a good hour to yank it down through the bush it was growing through.
 Afterwards, a bit knackered, I sat down with a cup of tea and a piece of cake.
I painted the back door ~ at last! ~ had a haircut and just pottered about really.  

However, the best bit of half term has just happened.  This weekend just gone has seen Mr and Master Clicky away to Torquay on a a rugby tour and Miss Clicky working and then straight to the boyfriend's.  I had the whole house to myself all weekend.  This is the first time this has happened since the kids were born.  19 years!!!!!  A good deal of guilt free knitting and TV watching took place.  It was wonderful.  
Enough said.

Back to school today and all the happy, smiling faces.  Christmas next.

See you soon....... Clicky Needles.


  1. Glad that you had a fabulous weekend to yourself! xx

  2. Amazing isn't it, how mothers can go 20 years without a weekend on their own. :-) We just had a nice week at the beach.. not sure if you saw my blog.. but lots of ocean images. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Sometimes we just need that 'me' time.... xxx

  4. How wonderful to have some me time, always appreciated more when it doesn't happen very often. Sounds like you deserved that piece of cake :)

  5. Bless your heart you deserved so much needed alone time. I literally start to go a bit crazy when I don't get and hour or two every now and again.

  6. Hello, I found you whilst bloghopping (via Teresa Kasner's blog :) Your comment about the clematis made me smile, we have one that's grown through a very spiky pyracantha, and yet, pruning it back is my favourite garden job, I love pulling the long tendrils through, it's very therapeutic and not dissimilar to detangling wool!
    Would be lovely to see you over on my blog :)

  7. You are very patient aren't you? Glad you enjoyed it.

  8. That is such a lovely feeling to have the house to yourself!! lol
    Thanks for sharing your lovely pics.
    Cheers, Anita.

  9. So glad you had some time at home to yourself, MCN! You made good use of it it seems to me :) xx
