  3. So that's your activity for the rest of the day sorted - stack the books, hug self, stroke the books, grin broadly and do a little dance, re-arrange the books.

    Repeat all day until face aches & Mr Fixit confiscates all books so he can have some tea.

    Delighted for you, Sue. :)

    YEAY!!!! If you are giving a prize for the best comment then Hazel wins. Just what I would have said if I was as clever as her.

    Well done m'dear, and it was brill to chat with you earlier (before the books arrived, or I suspect our conversation would have been a little different).☺
