A man from Parcel Force staggered up to the door today with a box containing twenty nine books by Charlotte M Yonge which I'd bought on eBay. The seller was so helpful. The postman was so helpful: "This is very heavy. Can I put it somewhere for you?" I have a feast of reading matter ahead plus a few duplicates to sell.
In a charity shop I bought 500g of Patons Classic Cotton for £8.00 It's a nice springlike primrose yellow, too.
