Last week Partner-who-loves-tea and I went to Hawarden in N Wales to visit Gladstone's Library and use the reading room. Gladstone's Library is a private library and charity of which we are both proud to be members since the facilities it offers are superb.
The building is attractive outside and in particular the reading room inside is beautiful.
The light of knowledge is here shining out of one of the reading room windows.
There is a cafe facility in the building called 'Food for Thought' and there are bedrooms available both for those attending workshops and those simply wanting to be in a peaceful atmosphere.
I have hundreds of pictures stored on my computer - some of them are anonymous but I'm glad to say I know who created this one - Howard David Johnson.
I don't think you could find a better representation of a faerie grove no matter how hard you looked. And as I said last August, everyone should believe in Fairies and Mermaids, Pixie Dust and Grimoires, Snail Mail and La Fee Verte, and Unicorns and Dragons...
and I had a wander around Liverpool and the Wirral one day last week doing a
few odd jobs and calling in at the Brimstage craft centre. I bought a couple of cats but their upkeep
won’t be quite so expensive in time or money as Mac and Annabel.
Thanks for stopping by! Grab a cup of tea or coffee and sit for a spell.
