A warm and muggy Saturday in Cardigan, thankfully no rain. Assembled outside the Guildhall while a Silver Band drew a crowd. Waiting to parade through town in aid of the Jigso Project. Themed Fancy Dress – musicals ancient and modern – inspired a lot of Mum’s (yes I know… ), and there were some superb outfits. Hats off (and believe me it was a hat doffing day) to the Mum who brought along Mary Poppins, the Tin Man AND Willy Wonka. Phew! She-child elected to be an ‘Indian Dancer’ (thanks Boogie Pete!) and so Spouse went Bollywood for the day.

Friend and writer Monique Roffey’s new book White Woman on a Green Bicycle is out now and gathers some good reviews. Despite this, she didn’t make the Man-Booker Long List and there’s me thinking it would be a shoe-in. Still there there’s a good chance of getting it on the Not the Booker Prize list that the Guardian is running. Follow the the link and nominate if you are inclined.
Of further note you can hear Monique on the BBC Radio 4′s Open Book show hosted by Mariella Frostrup, the thinking man’s pickled herring.
