Bloomsbury Publishing’s Twenty-Fifth Birthday Party

Birthday party in a huge marquee in Bedford Square. Twinkly lights in the huge plane trees. Vast numbers of people, including my collaborator the wonderful writer Tracey Turner, illustrator/author Steve Appleby and the ubiquitous Grayson Perry in peach satin – what is it about men and frocks?  Had a chat with GP about shrines.  What at first looked like a boil on his cheek was actually a pink flower button glued on.  Didn’t see any of the Heston Blumenthal canapes mentioned on the invite, but did try a rather excellent Venetian Spritz cocktail, (pink Aperol, fizz  & a green olive) which tasted suitably medicinal – I was going down with a sore throat.  Dinosaur book drawings finished, en route to Frankfurt Book Fair (tails crossed).
