Have I mentioned before how much I love Waterstone's?
I'm sure all my curmudgeonly bad feeling over the redesign in the Plymouth shop long forgotten and here it is again, this time in the branch "opposite Selfridges" in London.
Realizing that one must reward the troops at the front line to keep up morale I've promoted Curzon to Field Marshall so the London reconnaissance sorties will continue.There is a vacancy for a Colonel in Colchester which I'm hoping to fill very soon.
The Tinker has done his first ever signing mission today at a Macmillan Coffee morning courtesy of my good friend who blogs here.We counted all the copies out and on this occasion happily didn't count them back in. All off to new homes and, in amongst all the names assigned, either five chaps called Mike are getting a copy or there's been a bit of a mix up and Mike will have a copy for every room.Fortunately we didn't win the fluffy rabbit in the raffle, in fact I won a signed copy of Voyage by Adele Geras which I was delighted with. We bought all sorts at the various stalls and came away with enough home-made cakes to keep us going for the week but left the knitted elephant behind.
