Lady writer on the tv

Not really but in the library. It's just the words of the Dire Straits song that kept going around in my head.

I had a lovely time this morning in Gowerton Library. I'd been invited to speak there as it's National Reading Group Day and most of the audience (some had left by the time we took this photo) belonged to reading groups  at the library. They were a lovely gang of ladies who I think would have managed to enjoy themselves anywhere and were very chatty, asked lots of questions and empathised with the situations Alison gets herself into. Especially as one was called Marilyn and another Fifi (you have to read the book to understand the significance). 
And there were M and S cupcakes with tea afterwards! And the librarian gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers as a thank you! I feel just like a proper author! Although I always feel someone's going to find me out one day and expose me for the fraud I am!


What a plethora of exclamation marks! But it was that sort of morning. It takes me some time to 'come down' after events like these and I feel the need to 'do something'. Unfortunately I can't think of anything so I'm going to have to resort to cleaning? Or I could make a cake ... but I'm on a diet. But then again I have to use up the rhubarb in the garden ...


P.S. I found something to do other than clean or bake: I went to Mumbles and posted a copy of This Time Next Year to Di/Trubes in Liverpool. Thanks, Di.

I love our library - something about the place. Shame we can't have Radio 4 on!
