Oops I did it again!

If you point out to your wife that "there's the "Green Man Ceramics over here" when you're out walking there's only ever going to be one outcome💚 The owner told me that he had based his design on a medieval one that he'd seen in Paris. As for that book...there's no point calling yourself a bibliophile unless you always take the opportunity to have a nose around any second hand bookshop the National Trust has. Normally I come away empty handed, but this one was standing proud on top of a pile of other titles. I reckoned that the universe was dropping a large hint that it was sitting waiting patiently for me...I try not to ignore those little nudges these days. This is my personal take on the traditional holiday souvenir!

  3. National Trust bookshops should carry a wealth warning, as far as I am concerned!

    1. I agree. Often they are rather pricey, but this one was well within my budget. Arilx

  4. Just the fact that he didn't try to avert your attention as he hustled you past is a sign that 'himself' didn't mind if you indulged your little obsession...
