I live in Cambridge. And yes, I did make it to the Ely Cathedral book launching! Unfortunately, I was not one of the lucky 100 who got to personally meet Sir Terry on the night, but a close friend of mine was one of the chosen.
Special note to OrangeEyebrows - I used to live out in Soham, so I probably drove by yours often, as I used to cut through either Fordham or Isleham, depending on my mood to get home. Many moons ago, I was stationed at RAF Mildenhall, and like so many other Yanks, I fell in love with your country and did the 2-finger salute at the gate, and stayed! Twenty-eight years later, and I've never looked back!
