An evening with Jacqueline Wilson

Sorry this post is about a week late but it's the last few days of the summer holidays and my brain is officially fried; roll on Monday because school can't come quick enough, even if that does mean back to work for me!

So last Wednesday I took Mia, along with my friend and her daughter, to meet her favourite author and idol children's writer Jacqueline Wilson.  The evening was held at Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, which has to be one of the most beautiful buildings I've ever had the pleasure of visiting, it's simply stunning.

We made the most of our grown up evening out by dining in a lovely Italian Restaurant on Bold Street before making our way to the cathedral.  The girls had a wonderful time and during the brief Q&A session at the end of the event, Mia was lucky enough to get picked to personally ask Jacqueline a question of her choice.  Mia asked her "If you could choose your own birthday present what would it be?" I was so proud of her, especially when Jacqueline Wilson said what a brilliant and different question that was ( everyone else had asked the same questions "who is your favourite character?" and "which of your books is your favourite?")

Mia was thrilled to learn that Jacqueline would wish to visit Liverpool's Walkers Art gallery (Mia's favourite place) to  look at the pre-raphaelite collection and then purchase a poster of her favourite from the gift shop as her birthday present.

Here are the girls enjoying their very own signed copy of "Four children and It".
