What a wonderful day

Wednesday 7th September 2011

Today was been one of the best day's I've had since having my hip out.

We had a long lie in which pleased John. Sleep and I aren't speaking so it made no difference what time we got up....

After a leisurely breakfast we headed north to Alnwick to visit Barter Books, one of the largest second-hand bookshops in the UK.

It was a place that both John and myself had wanted to visit, but just never seemed to get round to it. My treasured 1902 edition of 'Mrs Beaton's book of household management' which John bought me a couple of years ago, came from there.

The building is rather usual. It's in part of an old Victorian Railway Station. Given its age, it wasn't really Wizzy friendly. However I was prepared to overlook it as it was a fabulous building.

Two hours, several books and a good credit card workout later we headed South, but just to as far as the Metro Centre where the credit card got yet another workout.

We got back home about 8pm, then after changing into my jim-jams, settled down to a bottle of wine (a special holiday treat as I'm not allowed much alcohol due to my tablets) and spent the rest of the evening browsing through the books I bought at Barters.

Bliss !!!!
