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.

Thats it ... TRYING is the word 
I have been trying to post but its the usual excuse...lack of time!!!

I do manage to pop in here and there and leave a comment....occasionally but not as much as I would like......grrr!

Meanwhile here you have a photo I took at the Clot de Gravel reserve near the Arenales Sand dunes.

I'll keep looking at it to remind myself there is a place where I can go ... not far relax!!!!

Amanda :-)


  1. that is all you need, no?
    ....just some relax to start fresh as a rose!!!
    xxxxx Ale

  2. Very true Ale ....its quite miraculous what a little bit of sea air can do !

  3. I hope you get some relaxing time for yourself soon, Amanda. But in the meantime, take a deep breath, push your shoulders back, head up, straighten your tiara and hang in there :-)

  4. I'll be praying for you to find some time for peacefulness in your life.

  5. Stop to smell the flowers soon.
    Love from Mum

  6. You have such a lovely place to visit. Make sure you do soon and take a bit of time for yourself.

  7. it's a beautiful place to relax in Amanda, soon be summer holidays! :)

  8. Sounds like you're very busy at the moment Amanda - i hope you find time to relax over the weekend!

  9. Life is busy and sometimes very stressful, post when you can, we are not going anywhere my friend.

  10. Don't fret! We are still here : )

  11. It's no good 'beating yourself up' over blogging, or anything else. Pace yourself. The world of blog won't go away, or forget you. We'll be here when you have time...unless by that time we ourselves are going through a patch!! Take care. x

  12. I think we all struggle sometimes with this feeling of running to stay still, I know I do, and the solution generally seems to be to stop running for a bit. x

  13. I feel ya on this one Amanda. I'm making a proper effort at the moment and in doing so completely ignoring my husband in the evening, every evening...I'm sure that's no good thing....xx


Thank you for your comments. I do read them and try to reply to all as well.Please keep them coming. Amanda :-)
