My first kids book, set in lovely Southwold – what do you think?@SouthwoldArts

I love Southwold, too, @Adnams - so much so that I set my new kids book there. What do you think? Should they pop over and visit the Brewery for their next adventure?

Lovely to see The Case of the Smuggler’s Curse included!

The Dan Marino years didn’t come without a cost - twenty years of ineptitude to follow. (And Marino never won anything, either…)

If we can’t get to the @hippodromeGY, it can come to us. Awesome as ever - the kids love it.

This must have been so amazing for the band - you can see from their faces how much they are enjoying it...

Lucky I was more observant than the dog or he’d still be running…

I’m with Noddy: Merry Christmas, everybody!

Interesting – and slightly distracting – view from the study window this morning!
