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.

My adorable country Aunt

Thought I'd share a photo today of my lovely Aunties. The lady on the right of the picture is my Auntie Beat who lives in a quaint little village in the Cotswolds called Quenington. She is now 95 and still lives alone and manages to cook for herself every day.

My other Auntie, Olive, lives in the picturesque and touristy village of Bibury. She is a Bibury lass born and bred. She also happens to be my Godmother. I am so lucky to have family ties in this area of England.

The handsome young man in the middle is my youngest son, Mark. He loves his Aunties too.

I'm sharing this today as we will be visiting the Aunts while we stay for a few nights in Cirencester on our way home to Yorkshire.


  1. Lovely photo Alison, thanks for sharing

  2. CB, have a safe and fun trip! Your Aunties and son are adorable! As we age, we realize how important our family members are to us!
