MY NEW PENGUIN MUG
I love Penguin books; I've always loved them. We used to go to the local Garden Fete as kids and run straight to the books table; it was a good one if it had piles and piles of orange Penguin spines. My sister Nessa and I would fill our arms and pay about 20p each for them. Reading fodder for weeks. I read tons of classic Penguins as a teenager - I'm probably due to revisit them all. If only I had the time...
My little friend K knows I love Penguin books and when she heard I had foolishly passed by the Penguin Virginia Woolf mug in Cork's Waterstone's saying, 'I'll come back for that later' - and of course never did - she bought it online and had it sent to me. Sweet, yes? Thanks, K, I'm enjoying my decaf more than ever these days!
