I found a little bookshop that doubled as an antiques shop!
This was the first sign that I saw. Haha.
Loads of old postcards on a really nice display stand.
After the bookshop, I wanted to continue exploring, so I kept walking and found myself in Osterley Park. It is a beautiful park with unexpected features:
A lovely lake with lots of wildlife.
A magnificent building with columns!
I got very excited about the columns.
There were lots of other cool things in the park too including some very climbable trees, a farm shop and a second hand book shop! Two bookshops in one go just made me extremely happy! I only explored a little bit of the park and hope to go back again soon.
I bought Homo Ludens at bookshop number 2 (more on that another day), and also a bag of sprout tops I got from the farm shop. Hoorah!
I wish that every time came home, there would be a bunny there like when I am at my sister's house. There's something very comforting about being greeted by the hopping and scuffling of a friendly bunny. Here's another lovely photo of him
Bugsy, looking regal.
I feel like I've a very productive weekend, and I feel happy to my core. I am surrounded by great friends who support my work, and feel very blessed. Now I really have to allow my brain to rest and start digesting some of marvelous things we've talked about - onwards and upwards to adventures and beyond!
