Yes, that’s me about to go to Aber uni for my first seminar, on “Writing: Methods & Techniques”. Huband thought it would be funny to take a picture of me, like proud parents do when their kiddies start primary school. I’m even wearing my brand new Cath Kidson-esque backpack! I was so nervous as I set off up the lane to catch the bus into town. But I needn’t have worried. Our tutor, Dr Alice Vernon, is great. I met up with another ex-student of Damien Gorman’s thursday night writing class, who decided to do the MA.
