Oh! I forgot to mention one of the most wonderful things that happened last week (thanks to globetrotter1 for reminding me in her comment to the last post) - I visited Persephone Books! And oh, it was the loveliest shop ever, all good old furniture and pretty Persephone books everywhere. It reminded me in a weird way of my great-aunts' old house, which made me like it even more. Nicola Beauman and the wonderfully named Hester Plumridge were charming hosts, as was Sasha, the grumpy Cavalier King Charles spaniel who belongs to Nicola and spends his days stumping round the shop and going for walks in Russell Square. I wish I worked there too, so much nicer than my current environment.
