Just got back from a great trip to Solihull. What a lovely town! There was a plush shopping centre - much fancier than Brent Cross - and a really impressive Arts Centre.
I did a short talk at the Solihull Central Library, (I had no idea a library could be such a fun place) answered some questions and met some really friendly people. I couldn't have hoped for a warmer welcome.
One thing - it was hard finding a good place to eat. I'd welcome any recommendations for my next visit.
This morning I paid a surprise visit to Eversfield Preparatory School. (The surprise was for me - I only found out I was going there at the last minute.) I met Year 5, who had some brilliant ideas and interesting questions. They also taught me a lot about wrestling and quad bikes.
Thanks to everyone at the school for looking after me so well - especially Year 5's teacher, Miss Genders.
I'm looking forward to going back for another visit, if they'll have me!
