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.

Toad of Toad Hall

 Good Evening Bloggers. Hope you've all had a good weekend.

Thought I'd share this piccie with you. We woke up one morning when we were away caravanning to find this little critter sat in our washing up crate. We leave the crate in the awning overnight and DH lifted it into the van without looking carefully and there it was. Made him (DH) jump, but not Mr Toad, he was quite happy in the crate and it took us ages to coax him out, lol.


  1. Brill photo Alison, he must of been comfortable

  2. Fabulous pic but I have to say yuck...really don't like toads and froggies!! Lol ;-)
    Hugs Emma x

  3. Second try - when I first saw this picture I thought it was a superimposed toad on the top of a building (think Empire State here).
    Mind you it was late at night and I have got a head cold.
    I'm with Emma - not into them irl - if I see one in the garden when I am weeding that's me done for the day.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Your comments are really appreciated
