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 Fond Farewell

It has been a trusted friend for over 21 years, the best of its kind.
Never letting us down, never seeking attention from outside the home.
Always performing to its full ability.
Never shying away from its duties.

So its with sadness and a tear we say a fond farewell to our microwave...


Got you all going there, lol

This is the only piece of domestic equipment that has lasted the time including 4 house moves. Can't be bad. Of course it had to go 'poof' the night before we're going away so its replacement can't be sought until we return but so what.
Anyway, I shall use our week away to write an appropriate eulogy and then we will have a full sombre ceremony with the appropriate 'burial'.

Perhaps I've had a bit too much sun!!!

Anyways, hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend, don't eat too many eggs and I'll be back with you in just over a week, x


  1. Oh dear but yes even the trusty Microwave has to go sometime and the timing is never good. Hope you applied lots of sun cream and have fun away. XOXO Zoe

  2. Have a great time, all of you and see you when you get back. I'll bring you some instructions for the bookmark card and the original for you to have a look at.
