I wanted to blend in, but grey pinafore meant I stood out

COMMENT: Going above and beyond is all in a day’s work at QA

Have your say

This week I visited Portchester Community School, so here’s a big shout out to them (which makes me sound awfully like a radio show host and less like a writer, but hey it’s good to wear a different hat once in a while).

I was delighted with how lovely they all were and the great questions that they asked me about my career in magazines, newspapers and now as an author.

The only downside was that it was a mufti day at the school – wear your own clothes – and I had gone in my grey pinafore in order to blend in.

So all I succeeded in doing was standing out in my drabness.

But never mind. A lovely school, a lovely bunch of children and a lovely day out. Thank you guys.
