Port Eliot Literary Festival




I've just looked up the weather forecast for this weekend's festival at Port Eliot, and it's sunshine and the occasional shower, as you would expect. But for those of you who are coming to Cornwall for the weekend -- and I very much hope some of you are -- my event is taking place inside the house in the Round Room, which as you can see from the pictures, is very beautiful, and will provide a congenial setting for conversation. I'll be in situ at 4.45 on Saturday afternoon. See you there... (and now I'm off to search for my wellies, which appear to have been requisitioned by teenage sons for other festivals, and have mysteriously vanished, or perhaps simply joined the sediment of lost boots at Glastonbury).

Oh, I do wish I could come - I've such wonderful memories of last year! I'm throwing a party that evening, so can't make it.

Good luck - hope it goes well, with that beautiful mural behind you, nothing could go wrong!

Yes! Lovely idea! It reminded me of reading a Tony Hillerman mystery (quite fun) years ago and in the middle of it thinking I'd just go immediately to New Mexico and work in a Navajo school in the desert. For about two minutes I totally forgot about child, husband and work.

What a beautiful room, very conducive to discussion, I'm sure it was a great success. I am off to Cornwall for our annual jolly and am getting more and more ragged as the day approaches. Your wallet tale is a sombre reminder to me not to let the wheels totally fall off in the count down!
