I went to the launch of First Aid Kit For The Mind last night and bought the very first box to be sold! ( I chose one with a coffee colour lid.) Emma Holliday signed it for me! This morning I showed some of the little surprises in my box to a group of children. Emily said that, with the brush, she would paint a gold gorilla. Rukhsar wondered if the fabric was magic and Meghan said that her baby brother is too clever for his bouncer and can get one leg out! I just thought that Julia would have loved Meghan’s throw-away line! Thank you Julia for your encouragement and for the absolute thrill you gave me when you told me you loved my poem. I treasure that email.
