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 Morning All

Wow, I am back home and full of cold and cough, even worse than off cruise, I feel really YUK.
I think my immune system was low with just getting over the cold from the cruise and then Noah and Megan were full of cold and tonsillitis so I had no resistance
Never mind, it just means John has to do all the cooking !!!!!
He is in the kitchen as I type (scheduled this last night )

Just been doing some blog hopping and alot have got the comment verification on, is there something I,m missing??????

It was wonderful to meet up with John Next Door and Ang, Mrs Duck (lovely lady).  Pressies swapped (yummy chocolate with peanuts and crunchie bits - yummy) and more.
Anyway back to my post and more crochet slippers, this time for Hollie. 

They fitted her perfectly and I think she will keep them at her Grannies for her to wear them there.

We went to East Carlton Park to have walk and feed the ducks, it was cold and damp.  Wellies on all round, Lorien lent me a pair.

Hi wendy, this might help you, from Marys H blog.

EDIT: A very savvy blogger left me a comment suggesting I try changing the pop-up comment setting to embedding (she had tried & it fixed the problem at her blog). She also left a 2nd comment, just ignoring the Word Verification, and I got both comments. So I just changed the comment setting from POP-UP to EMBEDDED, saved. I am not seeing the WV just now. Hopefully this will help anyone else who is having this aggravation today. (as one blogger put it "blogger playing Silly Billies". I loved that! I was saying something not quite so kind). Just for info, here's how I changed the settings, if you experience the problem, and don't know where to change it. Go to Design (at the top of the blog where you select New Post), Settings (- on the left side), Posts and Comments. Look for Show Word Verification - make sure it is OFF. For Comment Location (about mid way on the page) - I changed the Popup to Embedded. Be sure to save your changes! Hope this will help anyone else who is having the problem today. Thanks to Berni C (Chasing the Dream) for suggesting I try this!

Hi Wendy. Sorry that your cold is no better. Keep drinking as much hot tea as you face, this will help a little, along with as much rest as possible. Hollie is so pretty, what a lovely smile : ) Her booties are gorgeous, and perfect colours for Christmas. Look after yourself. Take care.

MRS DUCK said...

Hi Wendy
Aw, you're too kind. You're lovely too chuck. It was great to finally get to meet you and thanks for your gift too. Mind you, I do recall putting in a request for the size 6 version of these fabulous booties lol!
I've said it before but Hollie is like a mini you.
Get well soon.
