|Oswin with Steve Cram and the COCO team|
last time he was in the UK in 2009
Oswin is in the UK, and has been spending the last week or so in Newcastle, visiting schools and supporting organisations, and attending COCO events.
At the weekend he'll be coming down to London, where a number of us Hoja UK volunteers are based, and we can't wait to see him!
He'll visit more schools and supporters down here, and attending a Christmas Hoja get-together.
Simon Varwell has released his second book, The Return Of The Mullet Hunter, into the wild. It's nothing to do with the haircut or the fish (well, it's slightly to do with both), but about his attempts to visit every place in the world with the word 'mullet' in its name.
His project started off as a little silly challenge that got way out of hand. So much so that it's required (at least) two books to tell the story. This is his second book, and it's a fun and engaging read, as you follow him around the world, facing both success and disappointment at different stages of his journey.
A few months ago Simon asked me to design the cover for the book (I talked about that on my own blog), and as part of that deal he has promised to give 10% of the book's proceeds to Hoja.
So you could do worse than pick this book as your Christmas read when the family get a bit too much. It's available on Kindle from Amazon.
