It’s autumn, it’s lashing down with rain outside. Curl up with a good book and get lost somewhere.
Both Millie and Evie read to themselves these days, Evie is following her sister and sneaks up to her room on a regular basis to borrow and replace her books.
I am read to by Gruff these days, I have insisted that I get to read a story too so we both benefit, (and the cat does too of course).
Evie has a set of story books based in Roman times. I think they’re quite realistic. She says she loves reading them. As long as I don’t get any requests for a pet lion I’ll be happy…
I’ve had a day trip to London to attend the House of Lords to help Save the Children and Beanstalk launch their new campaign to get more children reading. It’s been a fantastic day meeting lots of amazing people and a tiring one.
Anyhow, here’s some silly postcards of me pootling about with pigeons and maps.
