Hillview Primary

Friday May 24th 2024

Dear Diary,

Perhaps doing a school visit on the last afternoon before half term wasn’t my best idea, as the pupils at Hillview Primary today were all clearly as ready for a week off as I was! But rather than appearing tired and lethargic (like me today), they all seemed extremely lively and boisterous! If only I could have siphoned off some of their energy! I could certainly do with it for all the store events I have coming up. Despite the fact that half term was well and truly on everyone’s minds, the children still seemed to really enjoy my assembly and the activity sessions that followed it. And so many of them presented me with their artwork to take home, which almost reduced me to tears. It’s certainly been an emotional few weeks since my book was published on April 30th, and I’m sure the roller coaster of emotions will continue now that I’ve booked visits for June and July. I still have to pinch myself every day when I realise how much my life has changed in a just a few short weeks. I feel so privileged to be able to visit schools and share my passion for reading and writing with so many young and talented children every day. I did somehow manage to mess another name up whilst signing a book earlier. Tiredness really is beating me a little at the moment, so I must get some rest soon. But it will be strange not doing any school visits for a whole week now.
