Playing Shop!

I have always had a secret dream to run my own shop and last weekend it (sort of) came true when I had my own stall at Thriplow Daffodil Weekend & Country Show, selling my books and other things I’d make like a colouring-in posters, treasure hunts and scavenger hunts! Thanks to my big sister for helping me out all weekend and thank you to everyone who visited us. It was an enjoyable learning experience!

A Royal Thank You!

I am really pleased to receive a thank you letter from Kensington Palace! I sent a copy of my book ‘Exploring Cambridge’ to the Duchess of Cambridge for her children. I thought they might be interested! 


Some wonderful ‘crazy bike’ designs

I paid a visit to the wonderful Bellbird Primary School in Sawston last Friday to do a presentation and book reading, followed by a workshop for children to ‘design their own crazy bike‘. Here are some of the fantastic ideas they came up with. I was bowled over by their enthusiasm and creativity! Thanks Bellbird staff and children for welcoming me!

A good but crazy week!

The books arrived last Friday and I sent out a news release on Tuesday. By the end of the day on Wednesday I had been interviewed by Cambridge News, BBC Look East and Cambridge Independent! I didn’t really expect to hear back from anyone so it was wonderful that they were interested and a little scary too!  Thanks to everyone for your positive feedback and for taking an interest. You can now buy a copy from and from Navy Daisy on Sawston High Street. Phew! I think we need a holiday!
