Q & A

Q: When is a big bag of new (to me) books not a complete and utter delight?




















A: Ok, it’s when you’ve only inherited the books because your best friend is moving back to the UK.

Hh that's a sad! A rotten thing about postings overseas is that friends are always moving on! Hope the books are some comfort!

Thanks to you all... it's tough because it's happened before and I should be used to it, but I'm not and I don't think I ever will be.
