Busy getting ready for the Victorian Fayre at Louth. I have books to sell , clay cats and fridge magnets. I have a good pitch, in the cornmarket which I am very pleased with. Come on down and find me and say hello.
I have been improving this website as it so needed doing. It has proved rather difficult as I struggle to get my head round the instructions !!! Work still needs to be done, but it looks much tidier now and more appealing - I hope.
After a few problems Benson and the Wishing Machine is now on Kindle and Benson Wishes Again will be live soon. It will be good to reach a bigger audience this way - it is a good job my hubby knows how to do this as it all totally baffles me!!
My books should be out on Kindle soon, now we have worked out how to do it !!!! I have also started a third book,but I am finding it hard to concerntrate at the moment - will have to give it a rest and come back to it later.
Benson is very sad today. He has just heard that his furry friend Murphy has been hurt by a car and has gone to live in the great cattery in the sky. Benson's eyes glistened with tears when he found out and two shiny drops slowly ran down his ginger cheeks. He has gone to find the street cats - Bubble, Squeak and Zimber to tell them the sad news. They all used to play together under the moonlight in Cinder Lane when all was quiet.
Just got back from the Isle of Mull where we met The Tobermory cat. He is a ginger cat like Benson and is full of fun too - he thinks nothing to riding round on car roofs or walking down the middle of the road and holding all the traffic up. !!!!
I am looking forward to visiting Eastfield Road School, Louth, to present the Benson Trail winners. I am taking part in their Jubilee Assembly on Friday June 1st. The books for schools are to be shared by Amy and her cousin Hollie, as they did the Trail as a joint family effort - so three books will go to Eastfield Road School and three to Lacey Gardens Junior School.
The Benson Trail was won by Amy Wrisdale, who goes to EastField Road School Louth. Thankyou to all who took part and well done. The cats were to be found in the following shops.
Stevensons fruit and veg shop, P. Baines and Co, Pocklingtons Bakery, Tina and Lynne's Cafe, Igloo Seafoods, MSR Newsagents, Fairburns Butchers, H & J Arts and Crafts, The Little Chocolatier, Sizzers, Kodak Express, Mr Chips, Moshulu Shoes and Dragon Fly Cards.
Thank you to all those shops.
Had a super day in Waddington Primary School, Lincs. We were made so welcome and the children were so responsive to the workshop being run. Mind you I was tired out when I got home !!!
The Benson Trail is coming to Louth. Starting on 21st April,try to find all 14 ginger cats found in shop windows around Louth. Win a set of books for your school and signed books for yourself. Find more details on The Benson Trail page. Have fun and join in.
Having a day trying to improve the look of this website.
An exciting event is being planned for Benson in about three weeks - if all goes to plan it will be great.
Visiting Edward Heneage School in Grimsby tomorrow to present some prizes to three lucky children - looking forward to seeing the children and their new school.
Had a super afternoon at Kirmington Primary school last week opening their new Reading Zone. It was World Book Day and all the children were dressed up as their favourite character - they looked amazing.
Really good feature on me in the telegraph on Saturday.
