Thanks for passing by. I have been an avid blog reader for a while, following a few crochet and parenting blogs. Inspired by a friend, I decided to take the plunge and start one myself.

A little bit about me.
I am a Scot (thistle), married to a Dutch man (tulip). We live in Ireland and have two kids (shamrocks) and two French Bulldogs (Fleur de lis).

Last year I discovered crochet and quickly became obsessed.  My “wish list of creations” are this long *pulls arms wide apart* but there are not enough hours in the day. My other love (apart from my family)  is French Bulldogs.  They bring a whole load of happiness into our lives. OH! And coffee, we cannot forget about coffee 😀

Not sure where this blog will go or where it will take me but hey, here goes *lifts coffee cup*

I can become distracted very easily… I think I will document these too, just for a laugh 😀

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
