Brantwood craft fair

A lovely day today at beautiful Brantwood with spectacular views along Coniston lake. Met many interesting people including the talented Sally Anne Lambert an illustrator and watercolourist. Had a great signing and sold a lot of books and had many chats about Out of Time and the next book too. Lovely surroundings in Ruskin's drawing room overlooking the lake and many exciting stalls and crafts. Felt nice being in close proximity to where my great grandparents lived and worked-Miles and Jane Wilkinson who lived in the Lodge and Miles worked as gardener first for Ruskin and then the Severns. Wonder what they would have thought? Just resting up ready for tomorow when I get to do it all again!:) and I will post some pictures-the autumn leaves look amazing. Watching Festival of Remembrance now at the Royal Albert Hall-reminds me of my dad who loved it-a Royal Engineer-and remembering the family members who were lost in WW1. Lest we forget
