- cockney blonde
- 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.

Thought I would leave you with this one of our little cutie and her Grandad. Enough to cheer anyone up after a funeral which is where we will have been today. My closest and oldest friend of over 26 years lost her brother of 46 very suddenly 2 weeks ago. He was very special to all of us, but knowing this piccie is bringing smiles to everyone will cheer us up.
For now, hubby and I will be in a lovely seaside hotel in Eastbourne for the night, no doubt with a crowd on a Turkey and Tinsel break, lol, x
