Battling with a horrid cold, so am writing this with a muzzy mind. Recent joys have included time helping with the RED HOUSE CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD
event at the Hay Festival. This is a wonderful celebration of a wonderful award, owned and organised by the FEDERATION OF CHILDREN'S BOOK GROUPS.
It is the only national award voted on by children.
Then down to the Gower, and Rhossilli Beach for a sunny Welsh weekend. Just a rapturous, relaxed time. Then back to . . . Well , back to a mix of school visits and family flu. Oh dear!
So this post carries belated greetings to the great Guiseley schools whose young writers joined me for a second set of enjoyable writing workshops at St OSWALD'S PRIMARY SCHOOL
on 5th & 6th June. Thank you for all your fine work - and thanks to the organising teachers too!
Plus a big hello to ELDON PRIMARY SCHOOL
, Preston, my school visit destination for Wednesday 11th June, though I was much sustained by strong cold remedy. Hope you enjoyed the five sessions as much as I did.
Now, let me struggle back to that sofa again, and hope tp be better for next week's visits.
