No, no I'm not skiting, truly.
I was just going to tell you about these books that Rob came across at the library on Tuesday afternoon.
You know, sometimes a great book just cannot be beaten.

Rob bought all the power cord bits & made up a safe & sturdy connection cord & now Lucy has lights & the little fridge goes too.
My friend Ruth came for a wee birthday cup of tea yesterday morning.

I am just delighted & very grateful.
I'll share it with you next time.
I hope that your week is rich with creativity & filled with friendship, hugs & a sense of true well-being. Thank you so much for visiting.
