Today was one of the loveliest days this summer, because it involved all the things that make me really happy and content with my lot. Actually, that's not strictly true; most of the things that make me really happy, happened today. So, nit-picking over, here are some of the things that happened today;
I woke up early;
The patron saint of car-parking spaces blessed me yet again;
We all had breakfast in a greasy spoon in Nottingham, that I found through the Phantom's blog;
We bought squillions of books at Waterstone's;
We came home before lunch so had the whole day ahead of us.
And standing about in Waterstone's I found this. Flicking through this slim volume, I remembered that I love Seamus Heaney's poetry more than I love Kevin Costner's characters, but less than I love Pablo Neruda's Sonnets. Friday Five to follow.
