We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

A rock 'n' roll Val Doonican

We've been given an agreeably large amount of money to launch the new children's audio collection (which is the old children's audio collection with a pile of new stuff from the Book Off project). Frog suggests getting in somebody he's seen at a Children's Librarians' workshop in Birmingham: they're very good advocates for children's libraries with a good line in entertaining anecdotes and a name that might be worth dropping in the local and professional presses. We can get him and a big launch party well within budget. The boy's done well. He presents his ideas to Mary.

"Ooh, it's a lot of money..."

She'd prefer getting someone cheap and local. Which make me wonder just what she'd do with the remainder of the launch money. (The question's rhetorical.I know the answer is 'nothing.')

I am so glad I have found your blog. I have read all of November and will start on October later but I have impatient child wanting to check her Club Penguin, and some bacon that needs turning.
See you later!

Hello Ladybird World Mother!
One day, when it is safe for me to do so, I'll explain why our heritage and arts centre is called Sheep City.
