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.

Journalling Updates

Afternoon everyone. Sorry I've been away longer than anticipated but the days just seem to be so full of doing absolutely nothing. Thought I'd update you with some more random piccies of my 'China' journal. These will be the last until after our trip now. The above image I retrieved from a mag, don't know when and don't know which as it was a while ago but oh so fitting I thought.

A couple more random pics with overstamped oriental images.

As I write this update to you all DH is in Palestine on a walking holiday with a couple of mates. He seems to be having a brill time although his comment yesterday was that he thought he'd had a year's worth of sunshine in one day. My poor DH doesn't really do sunshine....
Meanwhile, myself and #2 Son are soaking up the rain in Bury.....
I'll leave you with this stunning sunset from last week when we were caravanning at Durham. Fab colours.
Finally, a Traffic Alert:-
Our Park Home is being transported next Monday from South Wales to Delamere in Cheshire so if you are on the road and you see 2 large lorries with 2 halves of a home, possible police escort too, I apologise in advance for any delay to your journey.

Til next time, x


  1. Lovely pages, Alison - looks as if you'll have lots to fill in while away - if you get the time. Walking in Palestine, eh? Bit of a scary place to walk... I have a stamp of that image, btw x

  2. Great journal pages Alison - hope you have a wonderful trip.
    xxx Hazel.
