I had a bit of a sartorial crisis the night before the event as I was packing. As someone who has grown up with She Bop , it felt important to attend and show my support for both author and book but I was also nervous as hell when it came to attending my first book launch and also meeting Lucy for the first time.
My friend and occasional collaborator David Wilkinson emailed over some words of reassurance as I packed:. In the end I had to just pull myself together, pack and hope for the best. I looked up the venue for the launch, The Society Club, in my much battered A-Z and, having decided that it looked a bit tucked away, opted to do a dummy run before the event started at half six.
In the end, it was quite easy to find. It is very touristy along Oxford Street, but the scarves were nice. He also tried to interest me in a new beret or three, but I resisted. In the end I wore my new black and silver scarf slung around my shoulders in homage to my library pal Rachel, who has perfected the art of dishabille, and once acquired a long waited for scarf from the library lost property box after four weeks of waiting.
She happily slung it around her shoulders, where it looked perfect, and went about her work. The next day, the scarf was gone.
I really regret this now. I arrived at the Society Club just before 7pm, and it was really busy. I still missed him though. We are very good at giving each other well needed confidence boosts. Once there was a lull in that conversation, I said hello. Caroline got talking to other people, but I was able to have a nice long conversation with Helen, who I have always found very easy to talk to. Because I had never met Lucy before I got Helen to introduce me to her, as this seemed the least awkward and friendliest option.
