A big thank you to everyone who follows me and takes the time to read my blog.

7  Facts About Me:

  1. I have been with my partner for 30 years, the years have flown by.
  2. I did work in IT for 25 years but am lucky enough not to have to work any more.
  3. I now spend most of my time selling wool etc, showing other people how to knit, crochet and sew and will shortly be joining a co-operative to sell my crafts
  4. I live in Dorset, England which is an amazing part of the country, the seaside and local area where I live is the best place in the world, I can see me ever moving anywhere else.
  5. Going out for a long leisurely lunch with a couple of my friends is one of my favourite things to do
  6. Living at the seaside we obviously get very busy in the summer and very quiet in the winter, I have to say Winter is my favourite time as I get all my favourite places to my self again – very selfish I know
  7. I am always amazed by the bloggers out there who find the time to share their lives, woes, skills and tips with us, please keep on doing so, I hope I can get better at blogging and become like you.
