What a lovely day!

We had a lovely time yesterday. There was food, fizz, cake and chatter - people meeting for the first time or catching up in real life after an age!   It was so lovely to see everyone and especially to welcome Angela Cerrito, SCBWI’s Assistant International Advisor…
In my back garden.

Here we are…

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
