And I promise Britain is as fabulous as you’re dreaming it is, Andrea Beaty!

I got to sit next to her at a children’s literature conference a few years ago and she was just the nicest person in the world. I pull out my signed copy of Doctor Ted all the time when my niece and nephew visit! I’ll have to go read Iggy now. So happy right now!

I’m encountering that now. We’re just starting the process of buying a house. I’ve found a realtor, but when I told her that one of the most important things for me in a house is its proximity to bus routes and its walkability with strollers and kids, she just sputtered and gave me a negative response along the lines of, “Well, I can’t possibly look at bus routes and houses can’t possibly conform to them.”

I haven’t met her in person yet, but I hope I can instill in her that it really is important to me. I feel trapped and isolated if I can’t easily get to a frequent bus route; I depend on the bus for errands, outings and real-life shopping. Sidewalks are a must for me. If she continues to be ignorant, I’ll have to find a new realtor who understands.
