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.

Our Pembrokeshire Cottage

 Evening Peeps. Having spent all evening trying to get a signal for the WiFi I can finally show you our cute little cottage in a village about 3 miles outside Fishguard. Its just the right size for hubby and I and our 2 doggies.

The owners were on hand to greet us and were really warm and friendly. There are 3 cottages in total and loads of land to explore, so once we had unpacked and had a cuppa we took a walk up the fields for the girls to stretch their legs. On the way back, as the sun was setting, I was able to take these couple of snaps to share with you. That's our cottage on the right in the  piccie below.

I'll try and blog each day but I know I may be just too tired after all the work I have to cover. However, just to make you jealous, we had a fabulous drive down with the sun shining in all its glory and just got to the right place at the right time to see the Red Kites flying over at feed time. There is a Red Kite Centre near Aberystwyth. What a glorious site.

Once I've edited the photos there may just be one good enough to share.

Fingers crossed tomorrow we are going to spot some seals and porpoises, x


  1. It looks idyllic, Alison. I hope you and Dave manage to snatch some relaxing in between all the work!

  2. Looks wonderful, Alison - enjoy! It's a great time to be out walking, with the extending days and bright sunshine. LOVE those red kites and if you managed to get photos, will enjoy looking - I only managed a couple from the hides when I went x

  3. It looks like a lovey place to explore. Have a wonderful time.

  4. Hi Alison, fabulous photographs and I hope you have a lovely time exploring.
