I’ll use the title of my favourite Dickens book for today’s title. It really refers to my Story Telling on Thursday the lovely young people visiting the farm pester me persistently to tell the story about Mollie the famous idiosyncratic sheep. I think it is the story I have told the most often -(might be close to 3 figures and to around 3,000 people who have now heard it!)
Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to St Andrews School on Friday where I was looking at writing of stories with Y5/6. It was a delight talking literature with some of them afterwards.
Today we cycled to Stroud for the Book Festival. Three female writers with links to Stroud talked about their books and writing. One was Rosie (an ex pupil) who I mentioned in a previous blog and once again she was thoughtful and impressive.
My own Book Club is this Wednesday! So this is my first opportunity to mention our entertainment on December 4th at the Three Horseshoes Frampton starting at 8 p.m. It is always a great evening with a mixture of music, humour, poems and of course a story from yours truly. It is free but a hat is there for donations that go to Farms for City Children. Hope some of you who read this blog can join us. More details in a future blog!
You will notice my reticence to mention football following two lacklustre performances from the not so mighty Hatters not helped by being soaked on both occasions. Yesterday we were abysmal and that is being generous! Enough Said!
