Well, can you believe that we’re about to meet my last guest? Twenty-one lovely reviewers and writers have all crossed the threshold and taken part in Sue’s Blog Party. They’ve shared their books and their websites with me and they’ve provided interesting and entertaining answers to my questions. Everyone brought two items, and boy did we have some fun with the things they brought. Luckily, we have just enough champagne to see the day out, but we’ve run out of food and have nothing left to entertain us. What are we to do?

barbara-hendersonPhew! Guest number twenty-two is the lovely Barbara Henderson, and it looks like she’s just about to save the day. Barbara has brought giant nacho sculptures holding an assortment of dips, and a photo-booth with even more dressing up clothes. The photo-booth is proving an instant hit, whats-more, it means I’ll have a lasting reminder of all the guests who attended my fabulous party. Thank you so much, Barbara. Whilst the guests demolish the nacho sculptures, let’s take a look at the final set of Q&As.

Who is your favourite literary character? I love Mairi Hedderwick’s, Katie Morag! She’s just got enough rebel in her!

Which book have you always meant to get round to reading, but still not read? A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

What are you currently reading? Just finishing The Comet Seekers by Helen Sedgwick. Awesome book.

Where are you happiest? In a quiet coffee shop when there’s a fire on and the icy rain hits the window. With a good book of course!

Describe your best ever holiday. Interrailing with my now-husband. So much fun, so many bad camping stories!

What do you think is the best thing about social media? Maximum knowledge with minimum effort. Pretty handy – just don’t get sucked in like me!

What is the most important item you require for a quiet night in? Firewood!

Is it best to always tell the truth or is it sometimes better to tell a little white lie? Truth. Doesn’t mean you have to be mean about it 🙂

What’s your signature dish? I make pretty good waffles, actually.

Thanks, Barbara. It was so good of you to come. Please make sure you have your photo taken in the booth with Emily Bronte, Jaffa and Trixie – as soon as you can get a turn.

I’d happily join you in that cozy cafe, can we have waffles with golden syrup and cream, please?

Sadly, that’s it for guests. We aren’t expecting anyone else. But we’ll carry on here until the very last drop of champagne has been drunk. I really hope you’ve enjoyed meeting everyone. I’d like to thank each and every one of my gorgeous guests for coming and for making it such fun. Bye for now …
