Welcome to my blog, where I take pleasure in words and pictures, be they my own or those of others. I'm a creative individual, and the crafty side I explore on my 'other blog', Picking Up The Threads, which I hope you'll visit too. I'm sure you understand that I have sole copyright of my original work and any of my contributions, so please ask if you want to use them. A polite request is rarely refused. So, as they used to say on the BBC's 'Listen With Mother' radio programme, many years ago: "Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin."

Hanging on the Line
If there’s something vaguely familiar about the above picture, let me refer you to ‘A Boyhood Backyard’ which featured my father’s painting of this scene and the story of how it came to be the subject of his picture. At the time of posting, in March last year, I only had the painting; the photograph subsequently came to light whilst scanning my parents’ albums. Please do take a look back at that updated post to learn more.
The Sepia Saturday prompt this week is washing on the line and the only image I can find in my own albums is this one of my children playing in our pocket-hanky sized back garden in our RAF Married Quarters in High Wycombe. We had just moved in and hadn’t even managed to do anything with the ‘borders’, but with two young children there was always laundry to be done. My son looks grumpily from his playpen whilst my daughter takes the opportunity to jump in the empty laundry basket.
Join us for more images and words inspired by the prompt below.
