I’ve known Renita for a while now. Originally from America, Renita now lives in Wigtown, which the book town in Scotland, with the most stunning views across the estuary.

I had a wonderful day on Monday, at Mitcheldean Endowed Primary School. I’ve known the Head Teacher, Julia Dowding, for some time, Indeed, her husband was my children’s primary school head. Mr Powell, who taught my children maths, was also there, so it was a bit of a reunion!
What a very hot day. We were in the hall with the doors wide open and, luckily, a fan twirling around in the centre of the octagonal, pointy ceiling.
At lunchtime, I sat in on the auditions for lead roles in the school production. All were very good – I wouldn’t want to be the one making the decisions as to who plays which role.
Again, my www.shoo-tube.com video drawing lessons had gone before me and some of the children had been busily drawing the Ginger Ninja. If no one else wants to reprint the Ginger Ninja, I think maybe I should make use of modern online printing technology and put it back into print myself! The book seems to have a definite, continuing life.
Thanks everyone in Mitcheldean for a really great day – Keep on reading!
