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.

Up Up and Away

Our beautiful little Grand-daughter may look terrified here but I can assure you she was far from it. She kept asking Grandma if she was frightened to which I replied 'Yes'. Her response was 'I not frightened Grandma', lol. This was a teacup ride that was elevated. I don't like heights!!! Even kiddie heights...
We had a fabulous day out with her last Saturday at Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool. After we had driven round the animal enclosures and had lunch she wanted to go on the rides. How can you deny that, afterall it was her birthday treat, she was going to be 3 the next day.
Unfortunately, Grandma got the bulk of the rides to accompany her on as Grandad's legs are too long.....

I'm leaving you with this scheduled post as we're Off Off and Away in our caravan for 2 weeks. All being well, and if I've organised myself properly, there should be scheduled posts for each day I'm away.

For now I'm leaving you with this cracking photo as we set up 'camp' in Harbury, near Leamington Spa for a few nights.

Bye for now, x
