Do you ever pass up an opportunity because you think you are too busy/tired/stressed/broke ?
Today I am very grateful to my friend Sarah whose phone call at the last minute meant that I was able to meet Children's book illustrator and author Oliver Jeffers. We dashed to our lovely local book shop and had our purchases signed. Oliver kindly wrote a birthday message to my husband and drew him a little duck! He was very friendly despite having been signing books for hours (and I have met other authors who were distinctly grumpy!).
I expect most of us have read and loved his books. Isn't it nice to know the writers are the nice people you imagine them to be?
Happy weekend, love nick xx
