- cockney blonde
- 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 have recently rekindled my knitting hobby. This led me to wanting to give crocheting another try and thanks to a fabulous teacher, Jo of JoZarty, I am now totally hooked with hooking. I've been with my hubby Dave for 23 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and 2 dogs, one of which 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.

52 Weeks of Happy - 7/52
Number 3 - Was a last minute overnight visit from an old work colleague. He lives in France but was over here for a funeral and spent the night with us on his way back South.
Number 4 - This is a Tena Lady moment.... My beautiful grand-daughter (aka little lady) gave me a card (well an A4 sheet of paper folded in half) and said she had made it for me. When I pointed out to her that it said 'to Barbara' she said 'yes, but she didn't want it so you can have it'. She then proceeded to write To grandma, with my pen!!!! Priceless.
Hubby and I are off to Pembrokeshire tomorrow for a few days as I have work down there. Hopefully, lots of photo opportunities.
So if not before then I will see you later next week, x
