Yesterday I went back to my 'Llamas in Pyjamas' exhibition in Salford. I was commissioned to do a day of illustration workshops, to tie in with the show.
Unfortunately, I have no idea how it went, as I'm having to write this before the event, because as soon as I got home from Salford last night, I will have had to get all my stuff together for Edinburgh, pack and then have an early night. I decided to get the 7am train up there this morning, so I would arrive in time to see some events in the afternoon.
If all has gone well, I will have just checked in at my hotel, and will be having the swiftest possible wash and brush up, before walking back to the festival site to grab some lunch, ready to see Maggie O'Farrell at 1.30 and then at 3pm, wait for it... Niel Gaiman!! Yahoo!
Anyway, let's hope shed-loads of children turned up for my workshop in Salford and do the same again on Thursday afternoon for my Edinburgh event. Last time I was there, they had internet access in the author's yurt, so I might get the chance to say a quick hello, 'live' as it were, and let you know. Wish me luck!
By the way, there are now photos from the Salford show on Flickr, (viewable whether you are into Flickr and have an account or not).
