About Me

My photo
I'm 57 years old, working full time, wife, mother and grand mother, wishing that I wasn't working full time! I love and enjoy our children and grandchildren, our dogs and cat, our garden and allotment. I love crafts - knitting, sewing, crocheting, patchwork and restoring old furniture. I love to go to country auctions and love thinking that I've got my self a bargain!

Evening All

I've not been around much lately - the computer where I normally work is situated in the conservatory and it's been way too hot to sit in there recently - this hot weather's nice but a little too hot for me, mind it doesn't seem 5 mins since I was  moaning that it was too cold - we're never happy when it comes to the weather are we?

I'm presently trying to see if I can do this post on the kindle, sitting in the kitchen where it's definitely cooler......so please excuse any mistakes!

My Daughter and Granddaughters are presently in Egypt where it's up in the 40's....... phew now that's way too hot for me!! But the girls are enjoying their holiday - they've been to swim with dolphins today and had a great time, skimming through the water holding onto the dolphins and getting kisses from them.

But the main reason I haven't been around much is this little chappie

Our third Grandchild and our first Grandson, Eli, he was born on 13th July weighing 5lbs 12ozs - he was 3 weeks early and he is named after one of his great, great, great Uncle's. My Son and Daughter in law have waited a long time for Eli to come along - he is one very very special little boy and he has brought so much happiness with him.

I spent last Saturday morning shopping for lots of blue items.........shorts,  t-shirts, coats,  teddies and blue wool for knitting............after 7 years of knitting in pink it's a nice change to knit with blue wool.

One very proud Daddy and yes I am one very proud Mom and Nanny
