I’m old and small and live in north east England on the borders with Scotland. My hands and eyes are aging rapidly and I’m trying to get as much out of them as I can whilst I can.
There used to be an expression that everyone had one book in them, though I think opinion has moved a little on that, but I didn’t want to write what was in me; the jumble of my thoughts, memories, opinions. I wanted something expressing more of warmth and more than a little love.
I enjoy history, crafts, making things. My abilities are more in the ideas department and sideways thinking than in the execution. A friend did dolls’ house things and I quite liked the idea of miniaturisation or the detailed scaling of the world. Existence in a more controllable format? No idea, but it seemed an interesting direction to follow.
theinfill.wordpress.com and my postings here are my ‘book’. More of a fantasy story than a historical reflection, full of warmth and love and not a little bit of sweat and swearing – a reflection of life, perhaps.
