Could I call back in half an hour, said the person I rather urgently needed to talk to for work.

Do you think I could?  When the new Persephone Biannually arrived only ten minutes ago and I've got a tin of homemade chocolate shortbread ...

I think I'll survive.

Why haven't I got mine?

Sue said...

Oh, I have! It was lying on the mat. I think I'll enjoy mine with a homemade gingernut.

Now if only I had that new Elizabeth Jenkins novel, too ...

Lucille said...

Isn't it a lovely cover? I want that dress and scarf.

Lucille said...

I also want Chianti in a straw bottle cover.

Sue said...

Sounds a bit too disturbing for me. I like happy books I'm afraid.

mary said...

She's a brilliant writer, Sue. Did you ever read The Tortoise and the Hare?

Sue said...

No, but I may give her a go. Thanks for the recommendation.

mary said...

Aren't they fab! And did you notice the little dish of cakes, too?

& I have mine with a Hendrick's G&T.

Well I would like to wear a hat with a rather rakish red feather while eating cakes and drinking wine!
I woke up this morning and decided that I'm not going to buy any new books for a year. There are so many in the house still unread, however, having glanced through the Biannually I think that I may stop buying new books in a week's time!

I've curbed the book-buying, Jude - I'm not cured, but much improved. I was running out of space and buying far more than I could possibly read. Although I've got at least 20 library books out at the moment ...

Funny to think of us all sitting here reading the same thing and making a treat of it, Joan.

My copy arrived too, I have been looking at the cover taking in the whole scene especially the half concealed grin. I have two old Chianti bottles, perhaps I should display them with some cakes before reading the Biannually?

Darlene said...

Ooh, that's me on mailbox watch!

mary said...

Definitely should get in the mood, Toffeeapple.

mary said...

Gosh, that must be frustrating, Darlene ... maybe next week?
