As I mentioned earlier, I spent most of last week away from home again, visiting more schools.
I started with a day at Mostyn House School near Chester, in a beautiful old building, with the most extraordinary view, straight out across the sea. They actually have a moose, deer and tiger head mounted on the wall in the dining room! Then I travelled on to Shrewsbury for the Bookfest, where I visited 3 more schools over 2 days, finishing at Albrighton Junior's, where everyone was lovely.
I am often asked how on earth I manage to sustain enough energy to keep going all day, as I like to keep it pretty lively, with a lot of silliness and jumping about. I never feel tired though: I run on adrenaline. Mind you, when I stop, it's like pulling a plug and I have to be really careful not to fall asleep on the train!
