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.

Had a busy time in London just over a week ago, meeting up with book people (various), and a sneak into the new Theatre Arts Gallery at the V&A Museum. Back 10.30pm Friday, followed by a weekend busily finalising my Storytelling Training Workshop for some of the volunteers at the Workhouse, Stockwell, a National Trust site, last Tuesday.
Joy! The National Trust day went very very well, though with work on my mind it was hard to take in the surroundings as much as I wanted to - and I couldn't prime the pump well enough to raise any water. Might have frozen if I had! Plan to go back there later this year when it's warmer, and as a proper "visitor".
This weekend I am working through some urgent untangling of Tome Two. The week ahead is busy: opening Belmont-Grosvenor School Pre-Prep Library on Monday, and telling stories by the fire-side, followed by a trip over to St Peter's Primary School, Accrington, on Tuesday. I'm looking forward to this very much, although I hate the uncertainty of the weather at this time of year. Keepin my fingers crossed inside my thermal mitts! The new blog - The Year of Mouse - seems to be going well.
