Library...the little pleasures of life.

We have to make an appointment at the library now. A half hour slot to browse & choose books. There was a small queue at 10am, we had our names taken & contact details, hand sanitizer, one way round & out a different door.
Must say it was very organised.
I came out with five books.

Three good things:
1. Remembering the Argos catalogue. Every Christmas our kids & hundreds more like them perused the Argos catalogue avidly to decide what they wanted Father Christmas to bring them.
Sadly no more catalogues!
2. Edinburgh Rhubarb & Ginger Gin.
3. A beautifully warm day to sit in the garden.
Sounds very organized.. should keep you going before the next visit.. Donna mentioned a similar flavour gin yesterday.. sounds tasty..

A good shot to remember how it was - or will be? I collected a library book from one of our book group members today. She had the job of organising 7 copies and collecting them - we all take turns. Sebastian Barry, Days without end. Like your 3 good things Pat, might have to go and look out the mulberry gin!

I am struggling with all this organisation!! Reminds me of my days as a teacher so since I have rebelled and do things were and when I like - I do not like to plan too far ahead !! -- Ha ha - it sounds as if this heat is getting to me ! No more Argos catalogues -- end of an era ! Now that rhubarb and ginger gin tickles my fancy -- anything with ginger in it !

@busylady @jocasta @beryl Lots of new rules up here now, not my area but I have friends in the Blackburn with Darwin area & there is a big impact on them. No more weddings of 30 guests, so heartbreaking, some will be organised for tomorrow..Pity they didn’t decide at the beginIng of this week or start on Monday.
It’s all a disaster!

@julzmaioro I treated myself!

Well done to the librarians!! What would we do without books to read! Enjoy.

I saw in the news it was East Lancashire that had the rules tightened. So you are not in that area obviously but still have to have rules. It would become an unknown pleasure to visit the library!

Our library opened again recently too. I have done a lot of reading during lockdown, but most of my books are from our own book collection of secondhand books. I did buy a few new books a few weeks ago though before the library opened again. I will have to post a photo of some of my recent readings on 365.

Happy to see you’re able to go to the library!

The masks and rules are oppressive, but it's nice to get some of the 'normal' pleasures back into our lives.

Ah, bliss! Libraries were one of the most magical places of my childhood. I am still a bookaholic.

I like that they are obeying strictly social distancing and wearing masks. Many people living in Maltese and foreigners have thrown security to the wind and we are suffering for it because infections have increased to March numbers after a stupid, or business oriented, government said that Covid is gone and won't reappear.

Lovely to see folks able to get out and about safely!
For us growing up it was the Sears and Roebuck catalog! Many hours spent turning down pages in that book!!

So thankful the library is open. A nice Covid storytelling photo, Pat.

One day things will be back to 'normal! Enjoy the gin- one of my favourites 😁
