Whenever I go to the local shops I always pop in the Hospice Charity Shop. I've mentioned on here before about our local Hospice shop being the best to place to buy books.
Well, I popped into the Hospice shop this week on Tuesday morning for a quick nosey. I had Charlie, my little grandson, with me so I was a little distracted by him and not concentrating properly on what was on the bookshelves.
I did however spot this little treasure of a book and was fascinated by it. Really it's a mini encyclopaedia, a veritable treasure trove of knowledge. I love books like this the kind that with every dip into something new is revealed. I picked it up, had a quick look in it and then put it back on the shelf.
Tuesday night I didn't sleep well and the main thing that was going through my head was this book. Why did I not buy it! It was in immaculate condition and only £1 for heaven's sake! So, yesterday morning I made another trip to the Hospice Shop and wonder of wonders there it still was, on the shelf, waiting for me to claim it. I handed over my £1 and skipped all the way back to the car with it happily tucked under my arm.
It doesn't take much to make me happy.
