About Me

My photo
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

Good Afternoon All
It is good to be home but it was very difficult leaving Hollie and my family, she is so gorgeous and happy.  Oooh and it was soooo cold.

The first time I saw her awake on Tuesday morning, Lorien brought her into the kitchen after she woke up and her face just burst into a giant smile for me.  I had a great time with her and she was so good for me when I took her in the car to see my Mum and  my sisters.

I made this card before I left but it was still on my camera when I downloaded the pics of Hollie.
