Autumn Sunshine

Hi There!

It's been a very pleasant weekend in these here parts.
I treated myself to several hours in the warm Autumn sunshine with some knitting to keep me busy today.

Birds flocked to the cherry tree which is starting to turn red, where the feeders are.  They were visited by blue tits, great tits, long tailed tits, a cacophony of sparrows and a nuthatch.  They were all too fast for me to catch with the camera, I had lots of blurrs!  They disappeared as fast as they came and I could hear the shouts of a distant football match.
 Cricket has finished and the rugby season is upon us,  Master Clicky had training this morning.  He has a new pair of boots ~ he's growing faster than I can keep up with ~ he had already decided before we went into the sports shop they had to be pink.  What do you think?  I really like them. :-)
 The evenings are getting chilly and there is nothing the dog likes more than being cosy.  Unbeknown to me Miss Clicky wrapped him up in my Granny Blanket and, in true 21st century style I then received an emailed picture.  
And lastly a present that the above dog brought in last night before his bedtime.  I let him out in the garden for his last wee of the night and he reappeared with a hedgehog, dropped it in the middle of the living room and nonchanately got into his bed.  After checking that the hedgehog was ok ~ he/she seemed to be ~ I rolled it onto a dustpan and popped it back in the undergrowth.  I was actually very pleased to see it, I haven't seen any in our garden for several years.
That's me for now, off to do a bit of ironing and then watch Downton Abbey and Cider with Rosie which was filmed locally.

As always, have fun.............Clicky Needles


  1. Wonderful shoes for your son, I'm sure they will make him run faster! I wish you'd have gotten a photo of the hedgehog's face! Enjoy your week ahead. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. I wish it'd popped out too Teresa, it was well curled up a ball.

  2. Those shoes should help you son have fleet feet! So glad you are enjoying Autumn, and that your blanket and you Hedgehog survived their adventures :) xx

  3. Snazzy boots. I remember the days when boys wouldn't be seen dead in pink. Love the photo of your doggy wrapped in your crochet blanket, he must have been so cosy. Glad the hedgehog was ok, we see quite a few round here, especially on an evening when we take Archie out for his last walk. Love the bunnies in your last post. Both our rabbits sadly died this year. I've got both Downton and Cider with Rosie taped so I'm looking forward to watching them.

  4. Love that your son chose pink. My oldest has joined a club rugby team at his university. He has no idea how to play so that should be interesting. I wish we had a hedgehog, that would just be so much fun.

  5. Good morning..I'm Maria and we have been partnered in the 12 days of Christmas swap....xx


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
