Hello everyone

Having  returned from a month in Australia, and now caught up with postings here, I can give you a report on the booksigning in Truro.

I was surprised not to see more people there, but it had not been well publicised (as far as I am aware), with just a radio interview the previous day.  However, at 2.40ish,  there he was as large as life and very natural - no riding boots, alas!

Robin took time with everyone and was charming.   He signed some books for me (Xmas presents for diabetics) and  was surprised when I passed on the good wishes from all on the WGPLS.  Meredith was there and kindly took some photos of Robin and me.  I chatted with her for a while and they were enthusiastic about the market here and the hotel they stayed at.  Then a woman in 18th Century costume arrived -  Robin said he felt underdressed!

I don't think the group photo happened - but would say that quite a few came to get items signed - I saw at least one set of Poldark DVDs, also a Making Poldark - think a few attics had been rummaged through!

Below (I hope) is a picture.  Not very experienced transferring images so hope it works.

It made a great break in my day when I should have been packing.. and I bought more books than necessary to read on the journey.

Sorry cannot seem to get the picture on here - perhaps someone could offer instructions, please.  I can email pics, but that method doesn't work here..cry
