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.

Happy Anniversary to Me and Congrats...

And Hubby of course. It was Easter Saturday, 18 years ago, that we tied the knot with just 3 other people present. We had a lovely day and after the quiet ceremony at the Registry Office we went to Haydock Races for the afternoon. OK, I know thats a bit different but we had a brill afternoon and it was just right for 2 people who had been there and done it all before.

So you can imagine how thrilled I am to discover that my Anniversary card has been selected by the random thingy as winning the Sketch Saturday challenge. Of course DH wants to know if really the prize should be his as the card was for him.....Men!!!

I really should go and get showered and dressed now as I think I've caught up on my blogging until later, x


  1. Happy Anniversary to you both and well done on your win too - a double reason to celebrate
