If I look tired, it’s because I am!
Day one in Broughton-in-Furness was a fantastic start to the readings, with a lovely audience who asked really interesting and pertinent questions. It was a pleasure to chat to them, and, despite the ominous drizzle that had accompanied our journey to Broughton, on setting out from the Black Cock Inn and heading off on our way, the clouds dissipated and we enjoyed gentle sunlight for the rest of our 24.4 mile journey!
Despite an 11pm finish in Kendal, I was feeling fresh and ready to go this morning, when I whizzed over to Lakeland Radio to chat to Simon Yaxley about the adventure so far. We cut it fine, but made it to Kendal Library with time to spare.
After a fantastic 12 o’clock reading with a very warm welcome and another friendly, hugely receptive audience, we struck out once again towards Cowan Bridge, and we made it in astonishingly good time, having enjoyed a little impromptu parade through Kirkby Lonsdale as we stumbled across a local brass band contest!
The Cowan Bridge readings also went down a treat, thanks to a very enthusiastic audience and despite our having walked around forty miles over the past two days. The reception we’ve had each time has been wonderful!
And now I look like this:
This is a face that has worked hard. This is a face that has travelled many miles and said many words multiple times to many nice audience members. This face alone deserves support. Whether you donate or simply spread the word, it would be hugely appreciated.
We’re on a two-day push to Halifax starting tomorrow. We’ll be in the library from 5:30pm on Tuesday. Please support the company by sharing the below link, or clicking it, watching our trailer and making a donation. See you on the other side!
