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.

Home Alone

Good Morning and what a beautiful morning it is too. I was kicked out of bed at 5.45 this morning so that hubby could get me 'sorted' before he had to leave at 6.30 to take the train over to St. Helens to be with our Son today.

Here is my tray of goodies to keep me going until my pal Diane arrives to rescue me at lunchtime.
You can see the flask, top right, filled with hot coffee; mug ready to be filled with the steaming contents, and of course the jug of milk and dish with sugar. Then there is the banana and pear - healthy - and the not so healthy crisps and biccies. Finally a glass of water and painkillers just in case.

Also to hand are the telephones (landline and mobile), TV remote controls, Laptop, knitting, crochet and sewing....Oh, and my current book.

Of course by the time I've finished writing this I'll be ready for a snooze...........

TTFN, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz


  1. Just been reading up on your latest posts, so now understand why you're holed up in bed. Hope you've got plenty of interesting stuff to do. Sounds like you have everything you need close to hand. Personally I'd insist on far more chocolate but then I'd be the size of the house by the time the leg was fit for walking on lol. Take care and enjoy your peaceful day. Pxxxxxx

  2. Is that book Fifty Shades of Grey""?? Hope you are up doing the okey kokey very soon.
