About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

Our Little Bunny Rabbit

Just wanted to share this last photo we have of our bunny 'Velvet'. Unfortunately we had to have the poor little mite put to sleep today as he was in kidney failure. It would appear that his kidneys were already in trouble prior to his accident, although he hadn't been displaying any symptoms. The anaesthetic and subsequent medication just became too much for him. The vet even looked after him at her home last night as she felt he was too stressed at their hospital. I was able to cuddle him as he went on his way to the great rabbit hutch in the sky. God Bless, x


  1. Oh! that is so sad... I am so sorry for you losing him, poor little bun, I never expected this and probably neither did you.
    Love Jo x

  2. Aaaawww Alison, how sad. Sending you a big hug.

  3. I'm sorry to read about your cute little bunny Velvet. What a good vet you have to look after him at home so he wouldn't get stressed.
    xxx Hazel.

  4. I am sorry about Velvet. It is so hard to lose one of our 4-legged friends - they become such a part of us.

  5. So sorry Alison - but what a lovely vet you have.
