A new project

Those of you who know me well, know how devastated I was to leave Hong Kong – so many reasons why – but one of those was the loss of my job as Library Assistant at Bradbury School. It had stemmed from a phone call, received out of the blue, which lead to six wonderful years and, in my mid-40s, I had found my vocation. And then we left.

Now back in the UK, I’ve been lucky enough to find another job in a school library and it has inspired me to share my enthusiasm for all things literary and library orientated.

I’ve started a new blog, just for that. It’s called The Serendipitous Librarian and I hope you’ll take a look.

  1. I’m so chuffed for you (and the school and young people) that you have a job in a school library again. And it’s not that you’re LUCKY (as you put it) but that you’re experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It’s a delight to see your love for the role spilling out – even at a car boot sale!
