In total Flat Susan will visit and stay with 36 people before she returns home. Yes, thirty six! That's a lot of travelling for such a tiny person. If you are new to this blog perhaps you should scroll to the very first post so you know more about who she is and what is happening with her. You are welcome to take the button on the right to display on your own blog and we hope you will visit the blogs of the people she has been staying with and leave a kind comment after your reading.

We also had a very special guest with us...can you guess who it was?
Of course, Flat Susan!
Flat Susan had an uneventful journey getting to us, I'm pleased to say that the Royal Mail didn't manage to crush her! We set off in our campervan and arrived at Warwick Folk Festival where it didn't take her long to start making new friends. She seemed particularly taken with these 2 chaps on the bus into town. They were off to perform Morris Dancing in the town square.
Given half a chance I think she might have hidden in their hats and run off with them!
It wasn't all fun though, we soon put Flat Susan to work helping with the filming for the big screens on the stage. The cameras were a bit heavy for her so she stayed in the OB truck and oversaw the vision mixing.
She did so well that she's been offered a contract for next summer!
There were certainly plenty of interesting people at the festival who all wanted to get to know Susan.
This is the Green Man, famed throughout Folk Legend in the British Isles. He stopped by to tell stories and thought Susan's travels were wonderful. He told us about a small drum that is travelling the world on it's own and being taken to festivals and rituals where it's played.
We did have time off for some sightseeing.
Susan on the bridge overlooking Warwick Castle. If she looks a little blurry, it's because she had a late night with some real ale the night before!
On top of a Victorian Post box. One of two that are each side of the arches that lead into the town centre. They were placed there in 1866. There's not many of this style of post box left.
No sign of Susan in this one....she was taking a rest. It's one of the streets near to the castle.
That's all for today.
