About Me

Alicante, Spain
Hi. I live in Spain with my partner. I am retired and LOVE it. I love life here but I do miss my family back in the UK, two sons and three sisters and my Mum. Crafting is my life, I do something every single day. In the past it has helped me get through some bad times in my life. One such bad time was when my first grandson died aged just 14 months. He had been born 8 weeks prem but was very healthy and was growing into a beautiful, bonny boy. It was such a shock when the call came. A day never passes when I dont think of him. I am now Nanna again to grand daughter, Hollie, born July 2012, and Tess born March 2016. This is my younger son and his partner. I now have another Grandson, Noah, born Nov 2013 to my elder Son and they have 2 daughters Aurora, born March 2015 and Arabella, born August 2017. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. I love reading them all. xxxx

Craft Fayre

Good Early Morning All
It,s not oftern I am up this early, dressed and ready to go out, but today is the craft fayre at a local bar.  It is being held to raise money for the local folks that have no income, there are no ongoing state handouts here as there is in the UK, so when they lose their job, they get help for a short while, then it stops.  So the two blokes that run the bar collect food every week that the customers donate, take it to the town hall, and they distribute it to the families, I believe there are about 40 families in our village.  So a chunk of the proceeds that the stall holders take today goes to buy food for this cause.  Also, they are collecting gifts and toys that we wrap up and state wether it is for boy or girl, and so the same families will have gifts for the kiddies for 6th January, which is Kings day, which they celebrate more so than Christmas 25th December.
I will let you know later how we get on, my neighbour, Susie, is helping me as she has the gift of the gab!!! which comes in handy when trying to sell.  Gotta go now.  See you later.
