Bought 'piles' of books lately from ebay and other online bookstores... Guess I am a bit shopaholic at the moment due to some stress I am facing. The last lot I got, was a real bargain, offered at $30 for 20 volumes, many of them I haven't got yet in my collection. (It was a real bargain to me when each of those vintage volumes often cost about $10-$15 each, mainly because of the expensive postage.) Found one specific volume there (after paying) which I had been keen to get for a while, but steadfastly refused to hand over the money ($20) due to the unreasonable postage and handling from UK to Down Under. I was so pleased that I told my teen daughter about this luck of mine just last evening; only to be informed by email by that seller minutes later, that she couldn't find one book in that lot and had replaced it with something else. Imagine my depression when I thought it MIGHT just be the one I had my heart and soul on... (too depressed that I went to bed early last night!) The seller just advised me that it was a different volume which got replaced. Phew! I feel like doing a happy dance from not losing my precious book. Our gloomy, wet and hectic Tuesday suddenly looks more like a wonderful Friday afternoon. Reality: A day with 100% chance of rain, 25 degrees C (77F), and I will be a busy beaver soon taking the kids to one activity after another. (It is just one of those horrible days!) Any 'phew!' moments in your life lately? Hope you have a good day wherever you are... --- Image from pixabay

I was laughing at the forecast here for predicting 100% rain when it was dry as anything... and while I was laughing, the sky burst open... I got drenched within a few seconds of just running to the car. The rain then persisted for hours afterward. A shocking day!
