AND EVEN MORE on BOOK WEEK VISITS!
'Tis the season to be booky, it seems. So a hello to RACEMEADOW PRIMARY SCHOOL's Reception Class, who I met in Atherstone Library, and also ABACUS NURSERY, who came to Nuneaton Library. Thanks to the Warwickshire Library staff who helped arrange these sessions.
Then onwards, to a Tuesday at GREENOAKS PRIMARY SCHOOL, Northampton, where teachers, schools and doors were all beautifully dressed up. I felt right posh myself the next day, as I had a friendly driver from THE WELLWISHER BOOKSHOP to take me to NOMANSLAND PRIMARY SCHOOL in the New Forest, Wiltshire on Wednesday. Thanks for all the lovely story ideas!
Thursday brought a morning visit to the lovely classes at ST MARYS SCHOOL, Calne, where I was looked after by a very caring librarian, and this was followed by a fantastic Friday at MILLBROOK INFANTS, Kettering. And then, very gratefully, up the motorway to home, sweet home.
Unfortunately, I had a head too full of anxious thoughts to settle to sleep, so escaped to 1930's Alcatraz till the dawn's early light by reading AL CAPONE DOES MY SHIRTS by Gennifer Choldenko, a great teen title by Bloomsbury. Now, Sunday evening, there is deep snow outside, and a happy cat warming herself on the radiator by my desk. A week mostly at home ahead, and so very, very welcome. Aaaahhh!(Contented sigh!)
