Hello to all my friends,
High Tea at the Victoria Room was wonderful. The food was delicious and I made lots of new friends. There were girls from all over Sydney - Penshurst, Bankstown, Double Bay, Wahroonga, Neutral Bay, Manly and many more places. Thank you so much for coming. I hope you enjoyed the talk that Jacqueline Harvey gave about me and my books and I think my Alice-Miranda doll was very popular. Thankyou to Jill from the Victoria Room for having us there and we hope to see you all again early next year.
This week Jacqueline and I are working on my next adventure, Alice-Miranda at Sea, having just sent Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead to Kimberley our amazing editor for the final checking.
Have a lovely weekend - I think I might take Bony out for a ride tomorrow morning.
