Did two stints at the splendid RNA conference this year, brilliantly organised as ever by Jan Jones and Roger Sanderson. On Saturday, a panel – In it for the long haul– with the ever-delightful Annie Ashurst, our veritable Chair (on whom I have a small crush), Judy Astley and Freda Lightfoot. These lovely ladies have written an astonishing number of books between them (making me feel a downright slacker with my mere six) and sold ’em in their millions. I asked the questions, and they enthralled with their wit and wisdom. Next up was a talk of my own. They gave me the hangover slot as usual – 9.m. Sunday morning – tho the audience, gathering there in the middle picture before I started, seem to be holding up quite well. Thanks to Blue Stocking Mum Debbie White for the panel pic and Liz Fenwick for catching me pulling one of my usual faces.
And special thanks to all who dragged themselves along to listen. We had a giggle or two didn’t we? jxx
