Whilst there, we went to a pub, watched a bit of Eurovision, went to a garden centre, had a swim, saw Indiana Jones IV in a very nice cinema, went to another pub, experienced lots of live music for a mere £3 and, as a final treat, dragged my husband and brother around Ikea auditioning bookshelves. Not all in one day!
Couple of things to mention that I've noticed in my google reader catchup:
- I enjoyed a spot of memory lane courtesy of Joe Abercrombie and Part 1 of his "History of Gaming". If only we still had the wood-effect original Pong console!
- You can buy sets of matching books by the foot or yard to fill your library with! Link.
- I found The Republic of Pemberley (via here) which, as you might expect, is a collection of all things Austen. They have a great shoppe section which is filled with things I want but don't need. I leave you with an example!
