About Me

My photo
My name is Anne-Marie and I hail from Bolton, Lancashire. This is my first foray into blogging. I hope to record what inspires me and anything that makes it past the drawing board!. I recently retired and so have lots more time to play.

What's on my needles?

Not much happening on the craft front at the moment . New babies to knit for but so time poor. Too much time spent on Pinterest! Have started a board for Christmas and one for knitting projects. I have a blanket on my needles and hope that something that doesn't take too much thought will get finished.

Weird moi?

Have I got news for you featured a piece about the new labour leader ... apparently weird because he takes pics of manhole covers? So do !

Thinking Christmas lots to do !

Time to think about presents that need to be bought and the Christmas Fayre at work. Hoping to make  some shabby chic decorations as part of the theme for the four at work. We try to ring the changes each year.

Sunday for most of us is an opportunity to spend time with family. I always think  about what everyone is doing on a Sunday as we are all scattered about the place and have precious little time together. Feeling very sorry for myself today must break open a Toblerone.
All of us together for Mr Forever's 60th

I have returned!

When I created the blog I intended to post regularly. I have to admit that that working full time has meant that that I have had no time for crafting and painting which was what this blog space was meant to show case.
Well I am determined to make time and thought that rather than wait for the New Year I would start now!  

Today is my youngest daughter's Birthday - she's gorgeous!
