So... I won't be posting again for 3 weeks! That's probably the longest gap I've ever had on the blog. If you miss me, perhaps it would be a good opportunity for you to use the labels (a bit lower down on the right hand side) to have a potter through some of the back posts. I looked it up: I have written 1177 posts since I began.
It's all very exciting: I am really looking forward to meeting hundreds and hundreds of Chinese children (and quite a few librarians!) during my two weeks in Beijing schools. I'll let you know how it all goes when I get back.
