Home today as it is "Mechanic's Picnic Day"... ok, ok, I'm not a mechanic, but I am the secretary at a mechanical workshop!
So, I slept in, then did the washing of the linen, cooked a vegetable & bacon quiche and cut out 2 pairs of size 2 pyjamas for a birthday present in a few weeks, plus.......
I have started cleaning out my cupboards for my big move and I came across this set of books I bought from an Antique Shop while I was in the States last year.
It is the first 12 books in the "Bobbsey Twins" series by Laura Lee Hope. I don't think they were read that much here in Australia, but I could be wrong, as I was not a reader when I was young, only started reading later in life. Has anyone read these books?
...... talking of my trip to the States, I bought the 2 Amish dolls a couple of visits ago, and the last time I found this "Nancy Noel" print of an Amish girl against a quilt. They are on permanent display in my dining room.
Must go and sew up the pyjamas.
Until next post...
