Had a great and busy time at ASHTREES SCHOOL, Billingham on Thursday 10th March, so thank you to everyone there.

Last week was quieter so I got lots of admin done - as well as some good writing time, so I finished the first draft of a story for an anthology well ahead of deadline.

I had been quite excited waiting for author copies of my two newest Franklin Watts books to arrive - they were due to be published on 10th March - but the parcel has been delayed, so more news on those later, I hope!

Tonight I'm ready and packed for my next and last author visit of the term, to FARFIELD PRIMARY SCHOOL, Queensbury, Bradford. Not far, but lots of traffic so a very early start. See you very soon!

Now where's my cocoa and hot water bottle . . ?

Hello to everyone at two primary schools in North Yorkshire: HUBY SCHOOL, where I'll be tomorrow morning and GREEN HAMMERTON SCHOOL where I'm visiting on Wednesday morning.

Thursday is a longer drive, all the way up to ASHTREES SCHOOL, BILLINGHAM in Cleveland, for a full day visit. I'm looking forward to seeing you all!

And thanks to all my schools last week for welcoming me so well. I'm having lots of fun around this WORLD BOOK DAY.
