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.

Moving On

I'm sorry I've been MIA for a few days, been just a tad busy. This was our house last Thursday as the removal firm loaded our belongings onto their van ready for a few weeks of storage.

And so to a totally empty house.

And then just as the lorry pulled away we learned that completion was not to happen the following day as planned!!! Typical. So now this is our home for the next few weeks. Our faithful old caravan with a conservatory (ok an awning) and a glimpse of my #2 son taking it easy. This was taken at a beautiful site in Hertfordshire where we couldn't have wished for better weather.

We've moved on now but I'll share more photos from this stay and further updates on our adventures another day. 



  1. Par for the course for you, more's the pity, but you just couldn't have it straightforward. At least you've been blessed with sunshine in Herts. love the dig about the grandees!!! Just make sure you duck next time you make it here.
    Good luck for getting into your new pace soooooon.

  2. Hi Alison, glad to hear you are doing okay. Sorry to hear that they moved the completion date and fingers crossed the weather stays fine for you.

  3. Late with my response so now I can say I am glad everything has been sorted out. Looking forward to your arriving up North but must say we have not been having the weather you have been experiencing. It seems to be very localised.
    Just take care - and rest that leg when possible!!
    ps like Mark sitting there on the photo - he looks so relaxed.
