Last week I was down in London for the Walker Books 30th Birthday party - totally starstruck by all the wonderful writers and illustrators gathered there! Back home for a few days of tax returns from which I've now escaped - hooray! - so I'm happily looking forward to my next two visits.

Tomorrow - Friday - I'm off to MICHAEL SYDDALL PRIMARY SCHOOL, Catterick Village, to meet the children, staff and parents and open their new library. Very much looking forward to it.

The next week I'm visiting the younger children at ALL SAINTS J,I&N School at North Featherstone, near Pontefract. Looking forward to sharing some stories with you!

And thanks to the artists of St Marks Rainbows, Harrogate for their lovely thank you card.

Rainbows ahead!

Been away for a few days in Ireland, but home now. This week's a quiet one, and I'm trying to get some writing work done as there's quite a lot of pieces needing urgent attention.

Next week, however, I'll be visiting ST MARK'S RAINBOWS, Harrogate, so will have to find my story hat again. It will be fun, because a while ago I was lucky enough to write some stories for GirlguidingUK about Olivia, the character you can see at the top of this post. Looking forward to seeing you all, Rainbows!
