This is the story of Lydia.

Today I am posting a name to celebrate all the girls on the home front during WW11 and to show how I can customise a name with a story through illustrations to make your name print very personal . Lydia is an old family friend who worked for Churchill during the war , biking from digs in Oxford to Blenheim Palace and spending her weekends bicycling around the Oxfordshire countryside. So I have changed A to a bike ( which the duck from D has decided to ride) and the Union Jack to celebrate . I’ve also choose Labrador in the lilies for L as Lydia loves her garden ! All this seems very shallow when thinking of those dying from covid 19 today – but the Queen told the nation on Sunday to ‘never give up, never despair’ so I hope a little lightheartedness casts out the gloom.

What is your story?
