I have posted about the importance of reviews .I wanted to share this one with you! I am so chuffed with this recent feedback. These two lovely ladies found us on Airbnb, who we use to advertise our glamping site. I have also been accepted for my classes as an Airbnb Experience, which is great for local crafters to attend. My mum and I had a wonderful stay in Roz and Phils beautiful glamping site. It was so peaceful and was the perfect escape from work. We made dinner on the bbq and kept warm by the fire in the … Continue reading Do read this!!!

Journal 7…. This is a hoot!

I had an email today from WordPress, with a half price course on successful blogging. Today I began my learning modules and the first thing I have learned already is how to add a block to add a video from my YouTube Channel. How cool is that I say! i have had a blog for years but when it changed to the block system I couldn’t get it! So here we go! Here is another video….. I have loads!! Aww nooooo! This is my first Granny Roz video…… it really is an embarrassing hoot!!it’s so funny, even makes me chuckle … Continue reading Journal 7…. This is a hoot!

Journal 5 Over on Facebook I have begun to try and make a live video every day. I am keen to show up as often as possible to reach parents and children to get them started in this new hobby. You might ask why I am passionate about this. And the reason is because it is fun and easy to do. I have met so many people who say that crochet is hard to do. I also use a freeform approach which is a creative no pattern approach. And this can also lead to a fibre art using canvas and unique … Continue reading Journal 5

Its been a few days since I posted. The reason is because we moved out of our big yellow bus and into our onsite static home. It was delivered last saturday on my birthday! This week is birthday week for us as my mum had her zoom 101st birthday, which was fantastic seeing our family meet from NZ and Australia. Yesterday was Phil’s birthday too …. but not until next years big 0 one! I will upload some photos of the static home and the bus when I can learn how to retrieve them from icloud. This is a tech … Continue reading My journal 3

The Ark

OhI am so sorry I didn’t get to do a WIP Wednesday live this week!It’s been manic, really manic. Soon we will be moving out of our big yellow bus and into the luxury palace, I told Phil this morning on the other hand we could call it The Ark!In actual fact it is a 37 foot static caravan….. one of those big things that people go on holiday to the seaside in!It’s not your average home, but it is bigger than a bus, or a show wagon, or an ocean going cruiser, or an airstream , or a narrowboat … Continue reading The Ark

My Journal Journey 2

 It’s a long while since I lived in a house! 25years in a family house. 10 years on a narrowboat. Then a camper, show wagon, airstream, ocean cruiser, yellow bus and we are moving into a lovely big static home this weekend ….. can’t wait to hang my clothes up in a wardrobe! Today we travelled up to Winsford where I had my 2nd vaccine. We then picnicked at Delamere Forest and had a lovely walk in the sunshine. It was an amazing blue sky day. We are so excited about our new home arriving tomorrow. Watch out for the … Continue reading My Journal Journey 2

Blogging v Instagram?

So this is my question. My new platform is’s so visual and easy to post my photos on there. it’s all about getting seen. I have neglected this blog a lot, so I thought I would ask if anyone was trying to use them both as I am. which platform are you on? Where can you be found? Does anyone use Pinterest? which do you prefer and why? I have a YouTube channel but even that is sadly neglected! my latest effort is to show my face more. What do you think?

How many of you have been scammed on the internet? Oh dear it happened to us again last month, you would think we would know by now! But this week had a huge purchase to make and were keen but cautious ! In my brand training with the lovely Nicki form 100% Brand You we are learning about the fact that people buy from folks they trust. Right.Without doubt we have to build that trust over time.Ok.But we also need to empathise and to be on the same wavelength.It has been a manic week for us.When we bought our yellow … Continue reading My journey journal

Learning how to go live! Fun or what? Hi there! So many learning curves for my ageing fuddled brain. I turned 70 last year and I am getting so behind with all this technology.  Can’t get to grips with blocks either! Its still lockdown so best brace myself for the wind outside and go for a walk with Phil!! Continue reading Learning how to go live! Fun or what?

Wednesday live video… my basic stitches! I am revisiting this post to see if the link to my video works and hay ho it does!!! So if you click on the link you will find one of my latest videos all about the basic stitches that I use for latch hook crochet. I am pleased it works because this is one of my better videos. It is really informative and I tend not to talk too much drivel as I have done in the past. I am also quite chuffed because I am hopefully getting my head around some of this confounded techno bumf!! Do … Continue reading Wednesday live video… my basic stitches!

About this new the video I am returning to this post to say a little bit more about this recent link. I don’t know if you are getting fed up with lockdown, but in a tragic way crochet and making these videos has been quite quite therapeutic for me. I will try to keep it short, but last october my hubby Phil suffered a serious head injury and was in hospital for two months. I had great support from family and wonderful friends and life was sometimes just bearable for us both. So I get a bit emotional when watching this video as Phil … Continue reading About this new the video
