April saw the Wrexham Carnival of Words event which aimed to bring readers and writers of all ages together in a wide-ranging series of activities and workshops. I enjoyed the Local Author Networking event in Wrexham Library, which was followed by World Book Night presentations for children's writing. A lovely relaxed evening with old and new connections.

May 9th. I am celebrating seventy years of life by flying off a mountain at Bethesda, Bangor, North Wales on the longest zip wire in Europe. It will take me and about twenty-six others over Penrhyn Quarry for about a mile at up to 100mph. (A bit like bombing down the motorway really!) This is for the Dreamflight Children’s Charity who take very sick and disabled children to Florida on the holiday of a lifetime – without their parents. It may be their last one. If you have already sponsored me, please ignore the next bit and I know that many people have designated charities and appreciate that. If you can sponsor for just £1 that would be great.
