As a creative exercise I am writing a Haiku journal, attempting to record a poem each day. If it tickles your pickle you can follow my thoughts here: http://everyday-haiku.tumblr.com

My favourite frame from the first film in my Rolleicord. So pleased that the camera works, a new journey begins…
First portrait ‘in-print’
Just loaded the first film in my new, (old), Rolleicord. Looking for patient models to christen it!
Support Young Carers in Hertfordshire
I sometimes struggle with these security checks but I am mystified by ryanair’s site. It looks like I have to place a bet before I can book a flight?
I’m looking for some body to help us support Young Carers in Hertfordshire, if you are interested please send me a message directly, more info below:
Caring often goes unnoticed, and many people do not understand the challenges carers face. Carers in Hertfordshire would like to raise awareness of carers and the issues they face at every level. Carers give a lot to the community; there are 138,000 unpaid carers in Hertfordshire, which saves approximately £2.1 billion in social care costs. So not only is this a chance to give something back to carers, but supporting more carers to carry on caring for longer, if they want to, will also help to make savings to the health and social care economy.
The charity have worked with local businesses and to date signed up 24 companies in Stevenage that will give carers discounts and concessions. To access these opportunities carers will have to produce a photo ID. We have enlisted the local library to produce the cards but need to provide them with the machine to do this. The costs involved are approximately £1,000 and we need your support to help us raise the money. The Carer Friendly Community is a pilot, running in Stevenage for one year, and if successful we hope to extend it to the rest of the county. So this project could help you, your friends and family in the future.
