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.

A Hard Days Night....

And he's been sleeping like a...................................cat!!!
Simba sure knows how to relax, lol

This is the first of several posts I've scheduled while I'm away on hols. Unfortunately we have a funeral to attend first which is why we've left home 3 days earlier than planned but then its off to Gibraltar and Morocco. But for now we are heading South down the M1 and beyond.
Hopefully by the time you're reading this my journal pages are all prepped and ready to go and I can get on with the task of completing them in the sun.

I'm in no doubt that this will probably be one of Simba's favourite positions while I'm away on holiday, x
