My first school visit of 2019 was to the wonderful St Paul’s School in Chessington. Despite PowerPoint deciding to change my font so my name looks like Lexj (obviously pronounced Lex-J, like Jay-Z), it was a great afternoon with loads of questions from the years 3 and 4.

Last library visit of 2018 – York Gardens Library. This venue is special to me as I was involved in the campaign to save it from closure a few years ago.
