Crafty in the Med

I am here to enjoy meeting other bloggers and to share my love of craft ,mostly crochet, my thoughts and my daily happenings here in Alicante,Spain, my adopted country. I belong to a local choir because singing and music makes me happy. Flea markets and book shops are two of my favourite places to be. I read lots......sci´fi/fantasy,buried treasure, and off world adventures. I have a passion for history! I walk and walk and walk for about 10 months per year during the hot months I swim.

and... a very happy New year to you all!🌟

I am still here lurking in the background and reading your posts; an invisible presence😀 

Just hoping this bright New Year that is nearly with us will finally sort out the numerous health issues this family has been bombarded with these last eight months and our lives will return to normal. 

Keep well and have a wonderful Christmas 🌲

Well dear bloggers my short break away from blogging hasn't been so short as I had planned! As it is I still have things ... you know life things and family things to be sorted which I really want to get out of the way so I can get back to my comfy routine.   I have a bit of a one tracked mind approach when I am engulfed with things that need dealing with! 

Many thanks indeed for all your comments on my previous post. 

I have just popped back to share with you this our super special day. 

We finally got here!

We have actually been together for 52 years but the first two years was the trial run!

Happy blogging

Tied down


Hello to you all

I have decided that I am going to take a short break so there will be no post from me this week. There are numerous personal/family things I have to sort out. I also need to do some catching up and reply to lots of the blog friends who I have neglected of late.

Walking just around the block
