I may have been neglecting my blog for a while, sadly, but no more!

I am so excited that this weekend is finally here – my weekend with Richard (III, for those who weren’t aware of my obsession). When it was announced that they had found Richard III’s body in that famous Leicester car-park, I knew I had to visit, and so I did, last August, for what I imagined would be the only time…

And then, I had a very lucky day in December – having entered the public ballot, I was delighted to receive an invite to the service of Compline on Sunday 22nd March. I, of course, said yes.

So here we are, two sleeps from my weekend in Leicester, and I felt obliged to warn you that there may be a lot of random uploads and tweets over the next few days. I have a weekend full of lectures, activities, visits to key places, and most excitingly, a room in a hotel on the site of where Richard last rested his head (battle-camp tents excluded), the Blue Boar Inn. (And no, I won’t be one of those people who have apparently asked which room Richard stayed in.)

Let’s raise a glass to that wonderful parking space where it all began, and look forward to history-filled trip.

With NaPoWriMo and PoMoSco just around the corner too, here’s hoping for some inspiration!
