I’m going to be out with my family in the caravan at stunning Castle Howard in North Yorkshire (where they filmed ‘Brideshead Revisited’). I don’t think they’ll let me park the ‘van on the front lawn, I think the carvan and camping park is nearby.

The best thing is that I get to combine to great pleasures of mine, a long weekend away with the kids and the other half somewhere beautiful, and there is a Contemporary Arts Market on the Sunday and Monday too! I have a stall, and I can’t wait! No anxious travelling for me on Sunday morning to get there for 8.30. Oh no.

There are circus activities on the Sunday and Monday also, so I can keep everyone happy!

Why not come along?

    I'd love to, but we're miles away from Yorkshire (alas). We're up that way in a few weeks though … can't wait!

    Goodluck – hope you sell plenty … ;-)
