After I picked up the children from school and childcare today, we headed into our nearby town to run some errands. We popped into the library, to pick up some books for the children. I wanted to look at fabric. The novelty of the fabric prints soon wears off for the children, so I wanted to be armed with books.
We spent longer in the library, than I intended. It’s a small library, but they rotate the books around all the libraries in the area, so there is always something new to capture their interest. Do you notice how I say “their interest”? When we go there, we are always in the children’s area. It occurred to me today, that I don’t look for books for me. Ever. I used to. When did I stop!
Today I turned tail and headed for the grown-up area. The library is open plan, so I could see them and they could see me. I found the craft area. Its not huge, but I only spotted two books that I have at home. That leaves a lot of books for me to look at. I didn’t choose one today, but I will go back on my own sometime. Few less distractions.
No time for reading tonight. Busy cutting and sewing. The book is just the right size and shape for using as a template. I’ll read it later……when I have time.
