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.

And so to bed...

This was the fabulous sunset that was appearing as I was on the phone to Neet of Hickydorums. We arrived at this lovely site yesterday. Set on the site of an old quarry near Staveley, Chesterfield this caravan park is next to Poolsbrook Country Park which boasts lovely walks, a large lake full of geese and ducks eagerly awaiting bread and a cafe. Its also on the national cycle network and within easy walk of the shops.

The only downside is that the car, finally repaired in Hertfordshire, had some further undetected, although suspected, damage and so that is now away again in the car hospital and we now have a hire car until Tuesday. 

Still at least we can get around, our house finally completed today, and the sun is still shining....Yay!

Next time I'll show you some crafting that I've been up to, x


  1. What a glorious photo Alison. I am so glad things are coming together at last and I look forward to hearing from you soon, seeing you soon - and seeing some crafting you have been doing.
    One again - rest that leg at every opportunity.
    Love to you and the boys
    Neet xx

  2. Glad to hear that the house has now completed and can't wait to see what you have been up to.
