Festival season for me starts in the Autumn and involves tents…

….full of books.

It’s Cheltenham Literature Festival time again, and having learnt my lesson last year, when I missed out on Margaret Atwood tickets, I signed up as a member, crossed my fingers and stared at my computer screen as my place in the queue ticked down. Luckily for me (and my Mum) the finger crossing and breath holding paid off and I managed to get the tickets we wanted. Thank you sneaky advanced tickets for members!

I might have mentioned to you before that I love Audrey Niffenegger‘s novels and that I am not-so-patiently waiting for her to write more. I might have even confessed that I think she is one of the greatest writers ever, so when I tell you that I will soon be seeing the real life her (in the actual flesh) you can imagine my excitement.

If you are still in any doubt as to just how excited I am about the possibility of seeing, and possibly even meeting, one of my favourite authors then i’ll just tell you this, last year when I caught sight of Margaret Atwood, doing a book signing I cried. Actual tears.

Awareness. It's not so much about making others aware of our mental health issue, than it is about you yourself becoming aware of your issues and taking control.
