There's a wonderfully healthy amount of school bookings coming in this year: particularly good news when we're all a little worried about how The Credit Crunch will affect book commissions.
The flip side, is the outrageous pile of admin created. It's no problem when visits are spread out, but just keeping track of whether I've had all the information off the schools, sent all their book orders, bought all my train tickets, got accommodation details, mobile numbers for people collecting me etc etc etc... I'm getting so I don't know which way is up!
To make sure I don't turn up at the wrong school one day (I very nearly did that this time last year) I now print myself detailed info sheets for each day's visit, and I've spent all day today trying to bash it all into shape.
So, I'll hope you'll understand if I leave you now, to go in search of some comfort food...
