is what I’ve nearly become!
As many of you know I’ve been working part-time, about 15 hours a week, in a traditional independent bookshop for the past two and half years. However the lease expired at the end of September and the shop owner was not prepared to pay the new rent which meant that the shop would be closing.
The date for that has kept being put back but it seems that it will be closing this coming weekend. That means that I worked my final day there on Monday.
I enjoyed working there, with good colleagues, although I certainly didn’t get on with the owner who thankfully only very rarely came into the shop.
I still work just a few hours a week at the old-fashioned hardware store doing local deliveries if there any to be done. I’ve been there over eight years and will continue as long as the owner wants me to. I enjoy doing it and deliver to mostly long standing customers who I now know well.
Talking of TV there’s no new wildlife programmes next week, or anything else worth mentioning so if I do an entry tomorrow it’ll probably be a plotting one.
