I just spent an hour or so talking to Maame on Facetime! How iPhones and iPads make life wonderful. I not only talked to her but could see her lovely face, what she has done with her hair and her American bedroom (she'll be there for a few months). I spent most of my day at work rewriting an old Optimise your iPhone talk so having a super positive iexperience was just the ticket.

Maame said that the weather is definitely turning in Dallas. I am glad that we live in a part of the country that stays cold longer, at least in the mornings and evenings, but I do love the pretty signs of Spring, like this happy blossom we pass on the way to the bus stop.

It feels like it was longer ago, somehow, but the Muddi market was just yesterday. Liz and Megan have made so may beautiful props and decorative elements for our stall. I contribute a willow pattern cake plate! And cards, of course.

It may even have been my idea to paper this stand with the pages of an old book.

It's Book Week again. I think I only have one costume to come up with this year and Bethany decided on this ages ago. Today, realising that the 22nd of August is, in fact, the day after tomorrow, I ran down the street to Riot and bought the makings of an eye finger. Actually, I bought three eyes because accidents do happen. I'm just pleased Bethany wants to be a character out of an actual book - I'm always surprised at the number of non-book characters at a Book Week parade..... and I am counting comics (graphic novels) as books.

Tomorrow is book club, I am looking forward to it. We're discussing Perfume. I'm hoping the non-library staff members of my club have read the book because I know three of my colleagues haven't finished it! There's always the movie on Friday night....

  1. Oh Amy, it looks fabulous! I love the book page stand! I think I'll have to steal that idea for my markets!
