You know how it is.....

When you are really wanting to offload some of your 'stuff' - things that you don't really want anymore but before you have a chance to do it, you see something else that you WANT?
We spent Saturday night in Adelaide - the cherubs invited a school friend and so we went to see the movie "Night at the Museum 2", (which has made us also want to visit the Smithsonian Museum in Washington next year).
On Sunday, my lovely nephew offered to look after the cherubs+1 so husband and I decided to go and check out the Gepps Cross markets - held on the site of the last existing drive in cinema, in Adelaide. That is the place to go to buy wonderful fresh fruit, veggies, fish, bread etc - and there were some trash'n'treasure sellers too.
We found some lovely old books, with covers full of charm and promising all sorts of things!
I love the pattern on this spine

This is from The King's English Dictionary - great pictures, if you don't understand the words.

This is the book that had provided lots of laughs though.......
(oh and it also has a lovely textured cover!)Two doctors have written this book and it is interspersed with photos and pictures like these:

LOL - I might learn something yet! Watch out for further developments....
