Monday was a gorgeous spring day, chilly but with beautiful sunshine and a deep blue-sky, so a quick walk around the magnificent grounds at Stourhead was a must. Stourhead is just half an hour from where we live and being members of the National Trust we can visit as often as we like.
Tuesday saw us making a return trip to
to purchase more stock from a family we visited last year. I wrote about that first visit here. Terry had only just come out of hospital on that occasion and as the books are housed on the top floor (the servants' quarters - as they once were) of a four-story town house, we had to leave a lot behind. We promised to return at a later date and on Tuesday; we fulfilled that promise. Bristol
Wednesday – blogging, Tweeting, Tribber, Pinterest, oh yes and listing some of the lovely new stock.
Thursday included lunch with a friend in Wimborne Minster. Wimborne is a lovely town, and the perfect place to meet. Felicity retired on Tuesday so this was a celebratory lunch. We have been friends for almost forty years, and although we only see each other once or maybe twice a year we always pick up the conversation exactly where we left off! We had lunch in a pretty Italian restaurant – pasta (of course), a nice glass of white wine, profiteroles and a delicious cappuccino – perfect. It was just a couple of hours out of a busy day but thoroughly enjoyable.
On Thursday evening, I noticed this Tweet from Zoe at Playing by the book RT @Tesco Magazine here's the Kids' Book Clubs round-up of top 10 book blogs big excitement when I found my blog on the list!
Thank you Zoe and Tesco a perfect ending to a perfect day! There are some amazing blogs on the list. I’m familiar with some but others are new to me. I plan to spend the weekend getting to know them all.
Now it’s Friday, and I must knuckle down and list some of the new stock. Never a hardship, but it does take me ages because I find myself reading at least part of every single book.
One corner of my office with books waiting to be listed.
I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week, thanks for taking the time to call in.
