My trip to Glasgow was both good and bad. It made a change but it WAS hard work and very tiring. In the end I didn’t take part as the reserve (me) wasn’t needed, but I still got to meet my favourite Eggheads (Kevin, Chris and Barry).
The photo shows me sitting in Jeremy' Vine's chair.
It was a bit annoying watching the others getting their make-up done (yes, the men too) whilst I looked on but the meal afterwards was good and the journey to and from uneventful. The train home was crowded which I didn’t expect. Our team was scattered up and down the train so we couldn’t talk to each other. I thought I’d be able to get some work done but it was all so chaotic, all I managed to do was proof read my latest writers guide.
I was so tired this morning that I stayed in bed reading until gone ten. I read Lynne Reid-banks, The Indian in the Cupboard , from start to finish and really enjoyed it. I’ve marked some Writers Bureau assignments but apart from that, not a lot.
How did the team get on? I’ve been sworn to secrecy. They make everyone sign a statement then they film you promising not to say anything. Of course the good news as far as I’m concerned is that I can now think about applying for another quiz show……
