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.

Yarnbombing in Malmo and other stuff

Sorry, not very colourful for yarnbombing, but I couldn't resist sharing with you as DH was bemused by the whole concept. These were the little 'socks' on our bedroom chair in our Malmo hotel room, and below is the overbed lamp.
Although our trip had been booked for some months we only decided to travel on the day itself as I'm not in the best of health at the moment. Although I found it very tiring it was nice to get away for a few days especially from the rounds of hospital appointments we are going through at the moment. So, I will share a few piccies but I'm afraid my heart wasn't really in it.
This cute piccie is from one of the window displays at Malmo Theatre. Malmo, for those of you who aren't sure, is in Sweden. We had booked our flights in and out of Copenhagen but thought it would be nice to experience some Swedish culture, and so took the train across the Oresund Bridge into Malmo for 2 nights.
These last 2 piccies are from a little town called Ystad, on the Southern tip of Sweden. One of the things we did was to take a train ride out. It meant we could see some scenery without me having to do too much walking. This was such a pretty little town with a lovely atmosphere. These are just typical of the buildings in Sweden, probably Scandinavia as a whole, and we found a lovely little coffee shop just where I'm stood taking the photo. In fact we spent a lot of time in coffee shops during our short trip so that I could refuel and re-energise.
 Next time I'll share a few piccies from Copenhagen.

Sorry its not much but hope you like them, x


  1. Glad you decided to go in the end, love the socks on the chair feet though too cute. Hope you continue to improve health wisexx

  2. I'm sorry you aren't well. Some day I would love to visit a little village like that. So quaint

  3. Oh good old Malmö! I used to live in the area when I lived in Sweden. Hope you enjoyed it! I am sorry you are not well, but I hope a little trip north made you feel better. Anna x
