New Things

Hello Folks!

Hope you're all well, I'm still busy with doings.
Mr Clicky and I were banging on Ikea's door at 10 o'clock on Saturday to have a look at their ideas for sink units and stuff.  I forgot to tell you that when we were lifting carpets we discovered a leak from the en-suite shower which was showing up in the back of my built-in cupboard.  When we investigated further we found a lot of black mould under the shower.  This has been happening for some time.  We patched the offending leak with silicone sealant but it looks like a new en-suite which weren't bargaining for.

We quite liked this.
Anyhoo, we got a couple of extra things in Ikea that we didn't go for ~ spontaneous buying I love it!  We got our purchases easily into the car ~ no kids to get in the way, had a wry smile at a family trying to get in all the boxes and kids and when we got home spent the next few hours assembling.
Firstly a chest for Miss Clicky's bedroom, much bigger than the previous one, which she will hopefully use instead of the floor.
Also a set of drawer inserts to keep knickers, socks and tights in order.
Master Clicky also got a set of these, not sure if it'll work for him though!

A new computer desk for the study which holds lots of books and DVDs.  This is a massive improvement on the old black ash unit ~ remember those? ~ the corner design being much better for the space.  Excuse wire spaghetti on the floor but we've all got one!
Another thing to show you, new curtains for our bedroom.  They came from B&Q of all places which isn't a place that springs to mind when buying furnishings for me.  I think they were end of line and were in the sale.  I didn't really want full length but that was all they had and I have to say they really do look good.  Slightly thicker than the old Ikea ones so a bit darker in the mornings.  With the new carpet and new curtains the walls are looking a bit worn so time for bedroom decoration soon methinks.  I'm thinking shades of grey.
Finally some pictures from a dog walk me and Mr Clicky did ~ and the dog of course ~ on Bank Holiday Monday, pictures all taken with my phone.
A Scabious in a hedgerow.
Along through a newly harvested field, I could hear the combines when I went to bed the night before.
After the fields through some allotments.  When we moved here 14 years ago this was a council owned field.  Now it has re-opened as allotments.  We particularly liked these compost bins with leeks stood attention filling the triangle that was left.
The dog loved the walk, so many interesting smells.
When we got back we had coffee ~ Mr and Master Clicky and tea ~ me, and cake outside.  Lovely.
I have written the majority of this post on my iPad sat in the sun outside.  I'm using the blogger app which seems easier than when I tried it last year sometime.  However, I'm not sure how to change the font or manipulate the pictures, so I'll be back to the Mac for that.

There we are, all done now.

As always have fun.
See you soon.....Clicky Needles. 


  1. Gosh, sorry about the water leak.. our master bath needs all re-done.. maybe I should leave the water on for a few days.. :-) I *love* your big Mac! As for the iPad - I got the coolest new case for it that has a bluetooth keyboard.. it's a ClamCase Pro. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. I think if we cut you in half Teresa we'd find an apple logo in the middle!

  2. Aahh, a visit to IKEA'S! The Gardener and I still haven't made that run yet. With an IKEA's less than an hour away we do hope to go one day very soon. I'm sure there will be many temptations. Sounds like you love organization and I always enjoy seeing other folks ideas for inspiration. Cheers! Dawn


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
