The Metamorphosis of a good old book to …..

I started reading a book over the weekend, the first in over a year! I’d been thinking about reading a good book for a long while now, but since driving came on the scene, reading for pleasure became insurmountable! Last week, whilst talking to my neighbour,who has a big library, I mentioned the need  to sink my teeth into a good book – she instantly produced a fat softback, which I  haven’t been able to put down since.

Especially if I like their style, to see if there is a pleasant surprise to the rear of the outfit.  I guess it’s a bit like, extra footage after the credits to a film in the cinema, as my reward for waiting.

Framed for life

I guess bags for life have been around for forever, whether that be a square piece of cloth, with the four ends tied in the middle & placed at the end of a long stick, or 2 ends tied together and slung over the shoulder.
