Brookhurst Primary School

It's Monday morning and today I'm off to Brookhurst Primary School in Bromborough, Merseyside. It's a couple of years since I last visited the school and I'm very much looking forward to going again. See you all soon...

World Book Day 2011

World Book Day 2011 falls on Thursday 3rd March this year but lots of schools and libraries will be celebrating World Book Day at different times. For the next few weeks I will be out and about visiting schools around the country... I will be starting off on Monday by visiting Brookhurst Primary School in Bromborough, Merseyside, on Tuesday I'm in Padiham, Lancashire, visiting Padiham Primary School, then it's over to Lytham St Annes to visit King Edward and Queen Mary Junior School. On Thursday I will be at The Cathedral School, Llandaff, near Cardiff in Wales, and on Friday I'm at Holly Spring Infants in Bracknell. It's going to be a busy week but it should be lots of fun too.

Catching Up

Yes, it's official... I have finally caught up with all of my emails, letter writing and other admin work that needed to be done but always gets in the way of the actual writing side of the business. It's a good job too because next week sees the start of a batch of school visits and I'll be zipping around the country. Hopefully I will still be able to keep up to date with everything while I'm doing that and have free time to spend with loved ones.

A Great Time

Yes... I had a great time with everyone at West Walton Community Primary School on Tuesday of this week. It was a long way there and back - four hours drive each way... but it was well worth it. A lovely little school with lots of keen writers and book-lovers.

It's cold and wet in Blackpool today... brrrr. A good day for snuggling by the fire and keeping warm I think.

No school visits for a few weeks now but everything goes mad at the end of February for the start of Book Week (and World Book Day of course). I'll keep you up to date on where I'm going and what I'm up to so keep on coming back.

Right now I'm busy writing and updating my website... See you soon.
