Weekend Adventures

This weekend I went to London for a couple of days, I needed to get my flute serviced and that has to be done in Croydon so I used this as an excuse to spend some time in London.

My husband and I did not really have a plan of what we wanted to do in London but we came up with the idea of visiting the National Gallery and having a good wander around London. I was also determined to go to London’s biggest bookshop which is the Waterstones by Piccadilly.

The word overwhelmed comes to mind. As a book dragon and self confessed book hoarder being confronted with that many books in one building was rather daunting. I had set myself a budget and was determined to get a diary for next year. Well I got the diary, but the budget got broken, I was doing ok till I got to the till and the man behind the counter suggested a certain book to me and I could not say no, so the budget was broken. I promise I will try harder next time.

I bought five books and one diary.

My book haul is as follows:-

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

The Heart of a Dog by Mikhail Bulgakov

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

The Librarian by Salley Vickers

The Death of the Fronsac by Neal Ascherson

And my wonderful Sloth diary! I can not wait to get started putting things in my new diary. I love diaries and notebooks, does anybody else share my love?

Hopefully my new books will keep me busy for a while.

Oh also my husband bought me a limited edition Eeyore! I was one very happy Dragon, books and Eeyore in one day!

    1. Yes I have! They are brilliant, I tend to save all year then use what is on the card for Christmas presents. However, now they have changed to the stamp system it is making me realise just how much money I spend on books.
