I'm going to The Return of the Ring aka Tolkien 2012!

I know it doesn't start until Thursday, and tomorrow is Wednesday, but I'm going to [livejournal.com profile] gillo's tomorrow and we are going to the Big Do together. Better pack...

I'm taking my netbook, and I'm sure to be around, but I guess we are going to be busy.

I'm looking out for Inzilbeth-Liz and Altariel... anyone else coming?
Mood:: 'busy' busy

I'm sure we will - apart from anything else, the hotel has a spa and pool... :)

If it's half as wonderful as Tolkien 2005 was, it will be fabulous!! Have a lovely time!!!

Are you doing a book signing?
 
posted by [identity profile] inzilbeth-liz.livejournal.com at 09:29pm on 14/08/2012
Apparently, yes, but whether that's just in the dealers' room or at some official book signing site, I don't know. I'm hoping all will be revealed when I get there!

Thank you - I'm not really looking forward to the boat trip as the forecast is very windy - but I'm sure I'll have a good time once I get to England!

Wow! Are you going for the whole 5 days?
 
posted by [identity profile] curiouswombat.livejournal.com at 10:37pm on 14/08/2012
Yep! We plotted it whilst we were in Coventry. Should be a mix of fun and fascinating stuff, I hope.

It looks as if there is an awful lot going on - I might be spoiled for choice at times - and possibly so worn out by Sunday all I can do is lie down!

I didn't even know this was so big! O_O You are right. I would flake out!

Now that sounds like fun!
 
posted by [identity profile] curiouswombat.livejournal.com at 06:31am on 15/08/2012
I'm not looking forward to the first bit - the boat crossing is likely to be uncomfortable I think - but after that...!
 
posted by [identity profile] zanthinegirl.livejournal.com at 06:44am on 15/08/2012
Is it going to be a rough ride? I'm not a huge fan of those. Good luck, and have a great time at the Big Do!

eta for typo!

25mph winds from about 45degrees to the bow and forecast 'state of the sea=rough' last night. But the winds held off and only really began to pick up this morning and so, so far, the sea state is still 'moderate' after all.

I'm actually typing this on the boat, about 4 or 5 miles out now, and although I've been on smoother journeys it is not too bad... yet.

Enjoy! Wow! 5 whole days!! Pace yourselves! :)

I think we are really going to have to! Although we are staying in the more upmarket accommodation and it does have a whirlpool and a swimming pool...

I'm so envious. Have a tremendously good time and come back with lots of stories and pictures.

I have remembered the camera - always a good start...

How wonderful! I know you'll have a marvelous time.
 
posted by [identity profile] curiouswombat.livejournal.com at 09:37am on 16/08/2012
Thank you - it is going to be total immersion, I think!

I hope you have a wonderful time and the weather clears up for you both.

We are only about 45 minutes away, at Gill's house, at the moment - and at least it is dry, and the sun is trying to shine, so hopefully the weather is going to at least start out OK.

Yesterday it rained so heavily, just as the train got to Crewe, that it got into the electrics and we had to eventually change trains.

Have fun :) I am going to an event too, at the Edinburgh Book Festival next Saturday: "75 years of The Hobbit" chaired by the chairman of the Tolkien society.

That sounds good - enjoy it. This is going to have almost too much going on, I think - I won't always be sure what to go to at any one time.
