I went to the library



Hardly an earth shattering event but it’s far too long since I visited the library. See how lucky I was in my finds! I was so surprised to see a Dorothy Whipple book on the shelves it was in my hand in a second. I’ve been wanting to read Because of the Lockwoods for ages. The other books are all from series I’ve enjoyed and are very light reading.

Had I taken my camera I could have shown you a picture of two swans on the river with six cygnets. Beautiful, and so lovely that they come back each year. I prowled round just a few of our many charity shops, finding a new one open and an old one closed. I can’t keep up with the swift turnover in shop occupancy around here.

In other news, what a storm yesterday evening. We had a brief power cut (as usual whenever it’s windy) while trees and shrubs were thrashing about madly. This morning the garden has a very battered look, with some of my beautiful foxgloves on the ground. I wanted rain, just not that sort of rain.

Gosh, it's been ages since I went to the library. It sounds like you had a lovely outing, it's always enjoyable by a river. It was a bit stormy last night night, poured down and was tad breezy but I slept through most of it. More today apparently, it is very dark this morning. I have a fleece on!

Use it or lose it!

My heating has been on, it's that chilly. A delivery man informed me just now that the roads are full of police, firemen and tree surgeons clearing fallen trees and branches. Eek! Rather glad I don't have to drive anywhere today.

Re: LIBRARY THRILLS

The attraction is not knowing what you'll get. Though I've often come out with nothing.

I am far behind in the Fethering series. Time to begin again with Death Under the Dryer. Thanks for the nudge.
I really like Simon Brett. I think I'm up to date :-)

Are you okay, B. No posts from you for a while.

Oh, you are kind. Actually, not so good but also busy.

Thanks! x
