Paddington Bear and Friend, Paddington Station

I really loved this set-up. Two travellers resting together. Maybe Paddington can share his marmalade sandwiches…

She stopped and glared at him. “Not that it’s any of your business, I do actually.”

Reaching into his leather satchel, he pulled out a pile of papers.

“Could you open your mind to rational thought?” he asked, proffering a leaflet. “Have you thought maybe life is enough? That we are all responsible individuals and there’s no grand plan?”

“You people make me sick,” she said angrily, snatching the leaflet. “You shouldn’t be allowed to shove your views down my throat. And in public, too!”

Radiating disdain, she tore the flyer as she walked away.

I guess this is hello

This isn't my first foray into blogging, but this is the first time I've set up a space to post for a specific reason. Over the coming weeks and months I will use this blog to post evidence of my creative exploits. 

I create things in a whole host of ways. I make things - mostly with yarn and crochet hooks but also with knitting needles. I bake and decorate cupcakes. I write short stories, and particularly enjoy drabbles - flash fiction of precisely 100 words. I try to take a few photos every day, usually of things rather than people. I am fortunate to find inspiration almost constantly in my surroundings and will, if nothing else, post a picture a day.
