Some new additions to my Billingham camera bag were added today.
Yesterday, Saturday 17th March 2018, I attended a two hour workshop on “Creating Suspense”. Hosted 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…
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
