Not Much.

Hello Folks!

Well, half term is nearly over.  
It has been a lovely week.  As usual I planned to do lots of 'stuff' but didn't really manage much of it.
The wooden kitchen work tops remain unsanded and untreated.
The back door still has it's coat of undercoat and no topcoat (that was from the first day of the summer holidays!)
The hall still hasn't been painted.
I have however, woken up every morning and sat in bed with my iPad and read Blogs.
Not just a quick once over, a proper read.  I have missed catching up with all you lovely people and your interesting lives, your knitting, crochet, gardening, families and blustery Autumn walks. 
I've decided that I will make time every day to continue.

So what did I do this week?
Well, I went into Cheltenham on my own and wandered.  I tried on a few things and bought, guess what?......a flappy cardi.  I do love a flappy cardi.

I spend a whole day I kid you not, ironing.   The ironing basket was overflowing.  
 Did I mind?  Not one bit.
Miss Clicky was out with her BF and Master Clicky was out with the kids in the street.   I was ironing and catching up on TV it was lovely.  

This morning I've been out with Miss Clicky.  She is helping out with a horse near us called Baloo ~ that's her on him, not me in case you were wondering.  Now, I have no affinity with horses.  I don't like them that much, give me a cow any day.  Miss Clicky however, has ridden on and off since she was 5 years old and is a good horsewoman.  Baloo is like a naughty teenager and cheeky too so he needs a firm hand.    Rides involve me walking in front and as we are in the Cotswolds, up and down steep lanes, so I'm also getting some much needed exercise.
Today I took my phone hoping for some photos.
This moss looked like it had been there a while.
 Gloucestershire still looking good, despite the rain.
I'm all my own again now. 
 The dog is curled up and snoring behind me me, Miss Clicky has gone to Tesco to do her Saturday afternoon stint and Mr and Master Clicky gone to watch Forest Green Rovers in Nailsworth play Dagenham.  They did ask me if I wanted to go but try as I might I can't get into football.  
So I find myself with a peaceful few hours.  
I feel recharged and ready for school next week.

As always, it's lovely to have you here, see you soon.
Have fun....................Clicky Needles.
