Bristol Today

Was in full costume today-I was dressed as a 18th century merchant -wig as well and breeches! Cheddar Grove School had won a competition on the Bristol Pound and they had won a special day out in Bristol starting off with me as Story Teller in costume outside the Corn Exchange. Had done quite a bit of research and had to incorporate trade into my tale which I did in role. I included the slave trade in the story.

Had a lovely time and the children were very responsive and asked some great questions. Those of you who know me well will know I enjoy dressing up and I did!

Afterwards Clare and I had great time poking around the alleys area. In the second hand bookshop (I was in 7th heaven) we both found things -mine was the Observer Book of Bird Eggs -a book I’ve wanted for a while (strange fellow that I am!)

Update on the story -still going well and little twists still keep coming to me. I have really enjoyed writing this story.

Tomorrow I am going into my old school Dursley (really the first time properly) to officially open the sculpture (the present I gave the school) in the newly refurbished garden. Really looking forward to it seeing everyone again-it is a wonderful school with a fantastic staff.
