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 a daughter, Aurora, born March 2015. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my makes. Please leave a comment so that I know you have visited me. xxxx

Good Morning All
Here are my Matchboxes from my swap partner, aren't they lovely?
Each one contained homemade trinkets and embellishments.

I mentioned about going on a coach trip the other day and here are afew pics.
It was to a place called Biar, I did say Bier, so spelt wrong!!!

It was about one and a half hours away.  A very small village but very quaint and old.
We did climb upto the top of the Castle, my poor old, creaky knees!!!!

These narrow streets reminded me of Dubrovnik.
