What a lot of things happening in Folkestone this Autumn.
The Triennial is well under way and attracting lots of visitors, there are some amazing art objects scattered about, if you can find them all but there is a booklet to help you. Many more events are being put on around the town over the next few weeks.
Then in November we have the Book Festival, I have already booked my tickets for the events I want to attend. If you have not booked yet then do not leave it too long as they are selling particularly fast this year. Really looking forward to seeing Julie Wassmer again and asking about her new book that she has just finished.
I love some of these shows coming up at The Quarter House.
Many things to do round Folkestone and with the weather being nice at the moment it makes a pleasant stroll round looking at the wonderful art that is making an appearance in our town I have also heard that our Banksy will soon be on show, no details where yet but obviously it will be inside a building so no one can de-face it, although why anybody would want to I have no idea.
Today is the last full day in Wales, it has gone extremely quick and the best thing I have attended in a very long time. The choir night was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by everybody.
I am attending a course at the moment with Kate Walker the very popular Mills and Boon author. Very good workshop with handouts and lots of participation by us.
The sun has been shining brightly today in Wales and in some ways a shame we have been indoors but hopefully this great weather will continue next week. We have a poetry evening later tonight, which will be lovely to hear what the poets amongst us have been creating this week.
I am reading a book by Penny Grubb at the moment called The Doll Makers, I don’t want to put it down it is so good. Well done Penny, who I may add is a very lovely person.
All the authors bring a selection of their work so it can be looked at or bought which you end up doing and if anyone is like me I have more books that clothes in my suitcase to go home with. I have enough reading material for couple of months and I will tell you all about the books.
Packed morning of work tomorrow so not too late to bed and then the travel home in the afternoon. Weekend of rest and grandchildren and then it’s work, work work I have orders to get the book written!
