    Welcome back from your holidays, Marianne – hope you had a good (relaxing) time. Enjoy your talk at Blackwell’s. 456.3 miles would be rather far for me to travel to it!

  2. I second the welcome back, Marianne. And 456 miles is nothing. Try 16,000 km! 😉

    But I would definitely come if the commute wasn’t so long!

    • Awe, thanks, Belinda. It should be a fun evening! And lovely to hear from you. I’m off now to check out your blog to see what you’ve been up to, just as soon as I’ve had a wee peek at Wendy’s:)

    Hello Marianne,
    Welcome back!
    I would love to come to this, not only to see you and the other writers, but also to look around Blackwells. I really miss that store.
    Unfortunately, I don’t have transport so will have to miss it. However, I can wish you all the best and hope you have a great time.
