I spent the first part of the day catching up on neglected housework, and then, after a lovely long phonecall to a friend, discussing books and stuff, I called in at the library en route to the shop for some milk.
Found another of Susanna Gregory's "Chaloner" exploits, and also two books about Bletchley Park.
I shall look through this very carefully and see if I can spot my Mum! Although as Bob pointed out, with those 1940's hairstyles, and blurry photos, at least 50% of the women in the book look like her!
I'm feeling in need of a bit of creativity now though, so I want to go and do some sewing.
On the subject of creativity, we did enjoy "Mastercrafts" last night, with the ever-enthusiastic Monty Don [see here] It was great watching people learn greenwood craft, from a 'bodger'.
One pleasant surprise today - when I checked out my books in the library, I was handed a plain brown envelope, containing this.
Apparently I won the Village Library Christmas Book Quiz! But I must make some space on the shelves before I get any more new books, I think!
