It's such a busy time just now that my head's in a bit of a spin.
By the time you read this, I will be in Edinburgh (trains permitting) getting ready to do my storytelling events for the Literary Festival.
I am really excited that they have invited me to take part this year, as it's the first time since Kangaroo's Cancan Cafe, which was a few years back now. And it's especially good news, because they have booked me to do 3 events for three different books: Stinky!, Class Three All At Sea and A Lark in the Ark.
Having hardly drawn breath since the exhibition opening and with my Bears on the Stairs artwork waiting to be done, deadline looming, it's all a bit busy-busy-busy and slightly mind-boggling having to pack and go away for three days, but I know I'll enjoy myself once I get there and get stuck in.
Luckily I don't really get nervous about events - a HUGE bonus I know - and I do enjoy being busy (I'm totally useless at sitting still and doing nothing) but I do sometimes get a bit frazzled, just trying to hold everything in my head!
Wish me luck with it all. The weather forecast is dreadful: rain, then heavy rain, and then... more rain again! I'll be needing an ark by the sounds of it.
