I went to Loughborough today and survived.
Tom was as good as his word - up & out for 8.15 a.m. departure.
Then we got to a roundabout . . .
I was sure we should take third exit;
We were only 11 miles from our destination
We eventually drove for about a mile ignoring all commands,
We eventually got there and I set up the table . . .
They had given me the windiest spot possible and
I'm not at my best having to engage with strangers,
Elle trying to look interested
Meanwhile, I was getting a bit demoralised as two hours
Signing a book for someone
I was so worried that I would sit there for six hours and not sell one book.
I had one person ask me if it was suitable for a four-year-old.
Another asked me if I was that dog whisperer woman,
A couple said they only used Kindle,
By the end of the day I'd sold 18 books.
It was busy; there must have been about 500 cars in the car parking field.
Here are a couple of pics of the view I had of the show . . .
I felt I could not leave my seat in case I missed a sale . . .

Over 3,000 people attended the show plus there were four-legged friends
The day was a great success, but also a learning curve.
So just a big big thank you to you as the day was a success
Next year's show is on 27 July, which we expect to be
Tom McGuinness crossed The Rainbow Bridge on 4 September 2013.
