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.

Some Piccies from Rabat

Sorry, no crafting to upload today as we've had our darling little Grand-daughter to visit with my son and also our Step Grandson. We had a lovely day including them coming to watch Grandma horse-riding. The little 'lady' will be 3 in a fortnight and when I asked her how old she would be she replied '16', lol. She certainly behaves as though she's 16, getting very cheeky now and its difficult to keep a straight face.

Anyway, I did get time this evening to make a quick ATC for tomorrow's stamp club but I may upload that another time.

For now, here are a few more piccies from our holiday, this time Rabat.

The top one is a view within the Medina, where part of it has been covered over with bamboo. The Medinas are a bustling hive of activity and full of atmosphere. Brill for people watching.

This next picture I took from the old Kasbah looking over to the sea. The ladies bathe in the sea fully clothed. The lady you can see on the right was actually fully submerged in the water just before I took this shot.

Finally, this picture is one of many we took when we went to look round the Chellah (the old walled city of Rabat), where the storks have their nests. Apparently it is supposed to be good luck if they nest on a Minaret which many of them were.

It was amazing to see these huge birds perched so high in the trees and the noise was unbelievable.

We were lucky to see a few take off for a 'fly past' (not the red arrows, lol) and that was another amazing sight.
