Won't show OH that picture he might get ideas!


I have cooking books - in kitchen Garden books were in garden room but have just moved them as shelves were decidedly rickety. Odds and ends in big room ( upholstery book for instance) and a few fiction books in bedroom and in OH piles of boxes!!!

Always have a selectiion of fiction in caravan where I can devour them - no gardening

Most I think, some  probably years ago. He used to read on public transport as he went backwards and forwards to work. Now he has a Kindle type thing. He just won't get ris of them.

Selling some before we moved on Amazon meant I raised nearly enough to buy my lovely greenhouse.

Always take charity stuff to shop. You can then do Gift Aid contribution forms on the goods they sell and so the charity gets more money.  

then you also know where its going. I know its easier to have it collected though.
