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.

Supermarket Sweep...

Afternoon bloggers. Before I tell you about today's adventure let me share this card I sent recently for a friend's birthday. This is another one of those postcards from IKEA this time used in a gate-fold card.

Anyway, today we ventured to the Supermarket, hilarious. Apart from making me appreciate the plight of wheelchair users in negotiating pot-holes, kerbs and people!!! it also made me aware of how 'removed' from things you feel when sitting at that level.

Anyway hubby pushed me to the store and then we hooked up to a wheelchair trolley fitting it around my horizontal leg rest. After he had retrieved me from the middle of an aisle (he did a toilet dash...) we set off to get our goodies. I have to say chocolate featured heavily on this trip, lol. It was quite an art pushing this extended length of machinery around the aisles but he did really well and we rewarded ourselves with a ride home in a taxi followed swiftly by coffee and a cookie.

Oh, and before I forget, the clingfilm therapy was used again this morning. We are now 1 week into my confinement, 5 to go....



  1. This is gorgeous...love the image and great layout.xxx

  2. That card is mine all mine!! and I love it... thanks once again. Hope you are recovering steadily and managing valiantly,

    love Jo x
