If you know anything about the layout of Castlemaine [ which granted most of you don't ] then you would know that the Post Office is in the same street as David's day placement albeit about a kilometre away - but in the direction of home so it's no biggy to stop off and check the post office box [ no mail deliveries this far out y'know ]... and then as the Library is almost next door, to see if any of my reservations have come in.
Said library only gets deliveries on Mondays and Thursdays, so inevitably when I put in a bunch of reserves, it all arrives in one hit.

Stitch Cloth Paper and Paint by Angie Hughes
Creating Sketchbooks for Embroiderers and Textile Artists
Tomorrow if you're wondering who the gibbering wreck in the corner of my rumpus room is ... 't'will be me
