It's been another crazy week in the Joeworld. I've travelled 6,000 miles across 3 continents and met 160,000 students at 48 different schools.
OK, that's all a pack of lies, but it's how I feel.
The truth is I only made it to three schools, so a massive 'hello' and a medium sized 'wotcha?' to everybody at: Park High School in Stanmore, Bishop of Winchester Comp in Bournemouth and St Peter's C of E Primary in Wakefield.
And yes, Bournemouth is quite far from Wakefield, so I have travelled quite a bit.
I also recorded an interview for the BBC World Service. How posh and fancy and really-quite-cool is that? They came down to Bournemouth to record one of my workshops there. (Which turned out to be mainly about a guy called Bob and a girl called Brenda who have to go on the run when George Michael steals their cat. A cat which is dead. Hmm... let's hope the magic of radio makes sense of that one.)
I'll keep you posted on when you can hear that show. It's a special edition of the book show to celebrate the release of the last Harry Potter book.
Now, I suppose I ought to post some thoughts about that, since it's a pretty famous children's book series and I'm, you know, a chilren's author and all. Well, maybe I will.
Yes, maybe... I... will...
I feel a rant coming on. But the thing is, I've been warming up for a totally different rant.
A rant about Wimbledon...
