Well, I began the week with a great author visit and I finished it with one. Yesterday entailed meeting head teacher Mr Rushton and staff and pupils at Spalding Parish C of E Day School. This large primary school in the middle of Lincolnshire gave me a huge, warm welcome and even let me loose on their new library. I got to cut the yellow ribbon and everything!

The whole day was fun but I think my abiding memory will be of the children entering the hall for assembly, class by class, singing. It was like a scene from the Sound of Music, or would have been if the Von Trapp family had 450 children. Wonderful!
Role play in the hall – my famous Twiglet story never gets old! Photo©KimBird
The famous Twiglet role play again – remind me to tell you abut it one day
