Photo Friday: Words and Colour


Did a radio gig. Gave away some books. Wrote an on-the-spot flash fiction in ten minutes. Survived the 42 degree heat. Thanks to Jo, Marilyn and Carolyn who made me feel at home.

And a new set of dice (Story Cubes) for conjuring up words (looks like a Doctor Who story to me).

and then I got these for Valentine’s Day; my Dearheart knows me well – writing and Doctor Who!


Got my hair coloured – finally got the courage to bleach some of my hair to achieve the coveted purple!
