Some new additions to my Billingham camera bag were added today.

Creating suspense. A workshop by Liz Mistry.

Yesterday, Saturday 17th March 2018, I attended a two hour workshop on “Creating Suspense”.┬áHosted by Liz Mistry, the Bradford based crime author, the workshop was part of 2018’s Huddersfield Literature Festival. The workshop was well attended and was a thoroughly enjoyable event. Liz gave us plenty of advice and thought provoking ideas designed to help…

Day 76/365

It snowed again late this afternoon and into the night. Elphie is poking her head through the curtains and blinds keeping a watchful eye on it.

Day 75/365

I was mooching around the bookshelves in the room at Halifax’s new library where we meet for our writers group and came across this intriguingly tilted volume. It was locked inside a glass case.

Day 74/365

Today I oversaw the fitting of the stairs and hallway carpet at Bethany and Liam’s. The finished article really complements and sets of their hard work over recent weeks.

Day 73/365

A pre-match meal and pint with Bethany and Liam. Actually, this pint of Saltaire Onyx was supped while I waited for them to arrive!

Day 72/365 (2018)

This is one of the gates at the entrance to Paddington Cemetery and is where my uncle was laid to rest in 1946.

Day 71/365 (2018)

Today we paid a visit to the grave of my uncle, Charles Geoffrey Dimmock. Charles died in April 1946 at a little under one year of age and, obviously, I never met him. Just before Christmas 2017, my wife and I contacted Brent council to enquire if they could help us to locate his grave….

Day 70/365 (2018)

C2C’s final day. Sadly. But, what a terrific day. First up were Midland. They are brilliant. This is the bass player wigging out during their set. The concert ended with a blistering performance from Little Big Town. They brought the house down. Roll on C2C 2019. Tickets go on sale on Friday. I will be…

Day 69/365 (2018)

Day 2 of C2C. And what a belting day it has been! Plenty of great music, behind the music chats and intimate performances follow by a sensational, show stopping set by Sugarland. What entertainers Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are! They had the whole arena rocking. A fabulous set from them.

Day 68/365 (2018)

Today is the start of the Country 2 Country music festival at London’s O2 Arena. First up on the main stage was one of my current favourites, Old Dominion. If you haven’t heard them yet, give them a go. You will like them. I promise.

Day 67/356 (2018)

A long standing project for one of my oldest clients came to fruition today. This is a 28 page brochure which I designed and had printed for them. The client was very happy with the finished item. As was I.
