Times They Are A Changin'

Hello Folks.

Things are changing in Clicky Needles towers.  

The first, very wonderful news is that Miss Clicky and her man got engaged a month or so ago and have set a wedding date for July next year!  They are well under way with organisations, a marquee in a field near a beautiful little country church, and we are making all sorts of things to decorate it.

Master Clicky has passed his driving theory test at last ~ it was the fourth time ~ and has his driving test booked for the end of November.  We're keeping everything crossed.

Mr Clicky has just had ten days back home from Chicago, the first time since Christmas, it was lovely to see him and the dog went bananas.

Master C has made a fantastic log shed with left over bits of pallets and wood from our extension project.  It's a bit Heath Robinson but it's keeping the wood dry, so no complaints from me.
Without doubt his favourite bit was cutting the wriggly tin for the roof, any chance to use the angle grinder!
With Master Clicky nearly having passed his driving test and therefore nearly being fully independent, Mr C and me have decided that I will go to Chicago to join him in January.   I'll then come back in early May to help with wedding organisations (squee) and return afterwards.  The next few months will be a bit of a whirlwind I think.  

I'm on half term so I'm working in the garden and trying to start sorting the house out, a general declutter and tidy. 

I have been making and knitting so I'll show you some things on my next post. 

Bye for now...........Clicky Needles.

    2. Mr C’s contract is for another 2 years, work have said they’ll have me back, but it will only be if there is an opening.

  2. Very exciting news indeed!!! I am glad you are enjoying some stitching in the midst of all that is happening, and look forward to your next report :) xx

  3. Hello! Thank you for popping by my blog, it's lovely to 'meet' you. Hurry for passing the driving theory test - I remember that my eldest struggled a bit with the hazard perception part. Fingers crossed for the practical now. Love your new log store - what a talented young man. xx

    1. It was the hazard perception that he kept stumbling on, thank goodness it’s done now! He loved making the wood shed, I left him to it but gave a few suggestions!

  4. I love the corrugated galvanized roofing your son used on his woodshed project. It's all the rage over here for roofing and even walls and ceilings. I'm excited that you get to take time off from work to spend more time in Chicago with your husband. Good for you!! *C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* on your daughters upcoming nuptials!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. So many wonderful things happening. Good luck with the driving test and all the wedding plans.

  6. Congratulations to Miss Clicky and her chap, and to Master Clicky on passing his theory test. DD1 got herself a provisional driving licence, but only to use as ID at this point (she started at Uni a month ago and didn't want to have to carry her passport around with her) as driving lessons aren't financially viable at the moment (she's also at Uni in London so she doesn't need to learn at the moment). Such exciting times for you, going out to join Mr Clicky in Chicago. Fortunately, the digital age makes moving away so much easier than 30+ years ago when there were no mobile phones or Internet to keep in touch!

  7. Changes for everyone. Many congratulations to your daughter and her boyfriend, how exciting, a wedding to look forward to. Congratulations to your son too, fingers crossed that he passes his test first time. It must be a bit of a whirlwind at the moment with plans to go to Chicago in the new year, what a great experience that will be.


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
