So last Saturday morning, after watching Wild on CBBC (featuring Georgia Locock !) Dad and I set off to drive down to Bath. It was a really long drive from my house to Bath ( six hours !). This is us passing over the border between Scotland and the small country to the south of Scotland.
I had lunch, which was a sausage roll while sat in the sun outside, then about an hour before the talk I was given a microphone, did a soundcheck and set up the stage how I wanted it.
I was really helpful having the slides behind my because some of the things I was talking about ( like the hole on the back on a sheep skull ) was quite small and I could not show it to everyone.
I also talked about common skulls, like rabbit, sheep, fox, badger and mouse, and where to find them.
I took questions at the end, which was really nice to chat to people. Some people had brought skulls and bones to show my and they asked me what they were, and it was great to see other children getting enthusiastic about nature because of what I had done. After that I got a applause and after that I knew that all of the hard work had paid off.
After the book signing was over, I chatted some more with Ben, Mr and Mrs Powell and Vince and we went up to the writers room to talk. Mrs Powell swapped bones (I had collected a roe deer skeleton just before I set off because I knew she wanted one) and she gave me some really nice specimens which I will write about soon !
After she left I was talking to Ben for about half an hour. It was really nice to see Ben again, even though we chat a lot, because he one of the people who is an inspiration to me (Mrs Powell is another).
A really big thanks to everyone who came ! It really made my day and I hope that you enjoyed it too.
