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.

90 Years Young

 Good Evening Bloggers. I've popped in this evening to share some very special photos with you. Despite poor health and several worrying spells my Mum celebrated her 90th Birthday today. As you can see from the photos she was having a good day today and enjoyed the little party at her Nursing Home with a 'George Formby' entertainer.

Below is her great grand-daughter helping to blow out the candles with her Daddy (my #1 Son) looking on.

My Mother always liked a tipple and this piccie made us laugh as she suddenly came to life when a glass of bubbly was poured for her. In the background is her photo taken nearly 5 years ago, more bubbly on view.

Here's our little lady with her own little baby in a Grandma knitted dress.

Finally a picture of the birthday girl smelling her flowers.
Happy Birthday Mum, x

  2. Happy Birthday to your Mum, Elinor, and how lovely to see your pics after all her recent health problems and to see her well enough to enjoy her special day surrounded by her family.
    love Jo x

  3. Happy birthday to your Mum and many more. Love the photos Alison, nothing like a family get-together.

    We were down your way today, went for a walk in Delamere and ended up with very mucky feet (the dog). Good to get fresh air though.
