Tomorrow I'll be at MIDDLETON LIBRARY working with my Year friends from MIDDLETON PRIMARY SCHOOL, Morley, Leeds. I think we'll have lots of fun, so see you there, and hope it isn't raining!
I'm also sending a "Hello!" wave to everyone at SCOTTON LINGERFIELD PRIMARY SCHOOL near Knaresborough. Looking forward to meeting you the day after!
Have just had to put a spare chair next to my writing table. My tabby cat is getting a bit creaky in the bones and can't quite jump up now without something to help her. However, when she does get on to my table, she spends ages walking around and bothering me before - at last - settling down to sleep. Annoying - but it would feel a bit mean if I didn't help her up, the poor thing.

TWO MORE BOOK CELEBRATION VISITS!
Another busy couple of days, so many thanks to the children and staff of SELBY ABBEY PRIMARY SCHOOL for inviting me along for their exciting Book Party and to all at BARWIC PARADE PRIMARY SCHOOL, Selby, for the fun of sharing stories with you.
Now feeling quite tired after those two especially busy days (partly because I was also battling with a nasty cold) as well as tonight's djembe drumming practice, so the group will be ready for a small gig this Saturday.
Lovely day today in KNAVESMIRE PRIMARY SCHOOL,York, talking and telling stories to the children in the SCHOOL LIBRARY. Yes, at a time when school libraries are often now computer suites, this was a real, genuine and lovely library room full of shelves, and all the shelves full of brilliant books.
It made me extremely happy to be working there, surrounded by lots of interesting books - some by writing friends! - except for the fact that I had no time at all to read any of them.
All the same, it was still an absolute pleasure to be in such a bright and booky place, and special thanks to Tracy the librarian for her help - especially for getting some of my books in too!
Happy Reading Everyone!
