Today at the Sam Wannamaker Theatre at the Globe, the new Waterstones Children’s Laureate was announced. Lauren Child gave a terrific and witty summary of her two years as Laureate before handing it over to the new Laureate Cressida Cowell. Go Cressida. She’s a perfect successor.
The bridge near my house is closed to traffic. Pedestrians can still cross, so too bicycles and motorbikes. The poor bridge is getting old. Walking over the bridge is not as pleasant as it once was because of the increase in walkers and to make it worse, we have to walk single file. The council has even added these white figures to indicate where to walk, or maybe the correct posture for walking. I don’t know for sure. I hope the bridge reopens soon.
