I am recovering from a wonderfully entertaining weekend at the Middlewich FAB Festival, where I had the honour of exhibiting my books in the boatyard at Middlewich Narrowboats. I had a prime spot right opposite the stage, and I watched a fantastic variety of singers and musicians perform their sets. It was good to see so many people visiting our little town, and to hear so much praise for the festival. Credit to the organisers, that's for sure!
Now we are on the slippery slope to school summer holidays. My eldest daughter has almost finished her first year at primary school, and my youngest her first year at preschool. There will be emotional moments as I watch them growing up, but for now I am a little nervous at the prospect of being at home with them for almost seven weeks solid. Luckily, I have booked my mum in for backup and we will invade her house for a week, and then we have a family holiday planned in August. What are your plans for summer?
In the meantime, I am preparing for our next big event, the Northwich Memorial Court mind, body and spirit festival on 30th and 31st July. See you there!
