I just couldnt help myself...


Do you ever have the urge to do something that you know you shouldn't? Well I was a bit cheeky at my last charity shop visit but it was so much fun...

Whilst perusing the book shelves I saw out of the corner of my eye an immaculately dressed woman in her 60s looking through the non fiction self help titles.  All of a sudden I heard  a sharp intake of breath and then a cut glass accent exclaim "How awful!  Lydia this book is titled 'How to Kill Your Husband!' Who could write such a book honestly? How disgusting".  Well I couldn't help myself, bold as brass I walked over to where she had laid the book, picking it up and announcing "Brilliant, I've been looking for this book for ages". I took the book and sashayed to the till.

I don't even need to say what the ladies faces were like, they will probably be monitoring the local news in my area for any suspicious happenings!



Further to my cheekiness I couldn't help but leave it on the bedside table.  I'm sure hubby wont be wanting me to cook many meals from now on..

I'll be doing the rounds to catch up with you all my lovelies and I need to say a massive thank you for all the beautiful comments on my last post, it was really touching (if only i had you girls with me at school!)

Big Love



P.S The book is actually a novel so no husbands will be harmed in the writing of this post ;o)
