I hope you’re looking forward to Christmas as much as I am!
I’m so excited about ‘The Best World Book Week’ coming out in January, as are my co-authors, the children of St Mary’s, Adswood and Cambridge Road Primary Schools. We’ve had great fun writing together and acting out the story. It’s going to be lovely doing book signings together.
Last week, I was invited to spend a morning at Mattel Play! in Liverpool with my girls. We had so much fun. Lizzy loved the Thomas the Tank area the best, driving the train and pretending to be a farmer. Lily isn’t walking yet but she still managed to get around the shop in the Fireman Sam area, filling her basket with goodies. I was really pleased that I managed to get Lizzy to climb inside the fire engine as she normally shies away from fire engines at summer fairs.
The Bob the Builder area was ideal for Lizzy because she loves building towers and knocking them down. Because it was mid-week it wasn’t busy either, so Lily and the other little ones could crawl away to their heart’s delight. We can’t wait to go again, Lizzy in particular loved every minute and it was so nice to have a day out with my girls in Liverpool.
