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.

More snapshots of Ironbridge

First some views of the river flowing beneath the Ironbridge. This was looking over one side of the bridge and if you zoom in you can see a very industrious lady mowing her lawn.

These next two pictures are looking over the other side. First a glimpse of the village of Ironbridge and secondly, and a bit further down, you can see what looks like a beachy area. We didn't walk down to investigate. That will be a jaunt for another time.
 I couldn't resist taking this photo of the trees. All those different shades of green and in amongst that fabulous red.
 The church nestling above the village.
 And this shop with its oldy woldy chimney. I bet there are stories to tell there.
Finally, a last view of the bridge. This time with a group of schoolchildren peering through the railings.
I hope you've enjoyed sharing our visit. I'll share with you our photos from the Victorian Street another time.

Bye for now, x
