A SUPER week

It's Turtle!!


This week has been very busy, with work and fun and work-related fun. Yesterday I got advance copies of my new book, Turtle and Me, written by Robie H Harris and published by Brubaker, Ford & Friends. I feel so happy about this one, and have really loved working on it.

On Wednesday I went to see Buck 65 at the King's College Student Union. (Student unions sure ain't what they used to be - two drinks cost my pal £10!!! What's THAT about?) I think he's one of the best things I've come across in a while. He was funny, great music and his dancing was BRILLIANT. And he told a story about a rooster claw, and a bully at his school called Tardit.

That day I also got an email from the restaurant saying they were having a "soft launch" the next day, and would I like to come - food was free, drinks were not, which I think is the least dangerous combo and one I felt pretty happy about. I was sort of overwhelmed to see the wallpaper - it was SO big, but I felt really proud about how it came out. Here I am underneath it:

Holding the ketchup was making me laugh last night. Again, pretty glad the drinks weren't free. The burgers were seriously delicious though.

Non-work related, but this website has been making me laugh all week. I especially enjoyed the big-ass beetle and the beef jerky ones...

Burger time!

This is a new Byron Burger restaurant which is opening on Haymarket on the 15th of April, and this wallpaper is by me! I've only seen this photo, but feel pretty happy with it from here. In fact, I feel famous! I'm going to go and eat underneath it, copiously. But I better not drink under it or I'll probably get overexcited and paw it with grubby fingers. Hurrah! And thanks so much to Ben for hiring me!
