I certainly couldn't drive over to Hay to see Jackie Morris and Ffion Rees talk at Hay. So I felt very sad as I had missed them at Solva Woollen Mill due to hitting myself in the face with a rake on Election Day and giving my self a black eye and concussion.
Then my lovely husband said he would drive me to Hay :)
And so I got to see Jackie Morris and Ffion Rees give their talk after all, about how the book Queen of the Sky came to be born. Wonderful story and fabulous paintings illustrate it. So moving to hear how Ffion rescued Hissthe peregrine falcon and built up her strength again then let her go free. If you haven't already, buy this book! It is wonderful.
I said hello to Karin from Celestine and the Hare and various other friends and looked in book stalls and chatted to people and ate a lovely meal and drank a glass of wine.
And then I went home on the double decker bus to Hereford! I chatted on the bus to two lovely Dutch ladies who were hiking around the UK for 2 weeks and a couple from Cardiff who had spent the week walking and wild camping. I love buses and trains
So a day that I thought was going to be crap has turned out brilliantly
