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.

52 Weeks of Happy 10/52

Happy Mothers' Day to all those Mummies out there. This is the first of my '4' Happy things including the beautiful cards I received from both my lads even if one did say 'From Both of Us', and he's single. I did laugh. I laughed even more when he phoned to wish me Happy Valentine's Day because Dad had told him to call. Hilarious.....For those of you who know Mark you will understand. Number 1 Son came round with the goodies above and cooked me a lovely dinner. We had a lovely day.

#2 - A rare night out at the flicks with Hubby on Wednesday with a Pizza beforehand. Got to take advantage of those Orange Wednesday bargains.

#3 - Visiting for the first time my Hubby's older cousin (he's 82) and sampling his homemade Bara Brith. Fantastic.

#4 - These beauties who were taking up the lane when I was working on Thursday. Hilarious. The big brown Mama even 'faced' up to the car as if to challenge me for being on her lane.....
Hope you've all had a good week and I'll try and post some crafting next time, x

  3. Thanks for visiting yesterday Alison - back's a lot better now, at least I can do a bit of crafting thank goodness. Sore 'bum' though (well not my bum but I'm being polite) as I had a smear test yesterday and I think the nurse trained with Joseph Mengele).
    Glad you had a good Mothers Day.
