She called them "the young royals." She remembered celebrating Queen Victoria's Jubilee when she was 8. So, of course, I had to watch this one! ?? 1y

Thank you @scripturient for the #blanketandabookswap can't wait to grab a cup of tea, wrap up in this blanket and read this book!!!!

Nikki15 Such a beautiful blanket 💖 1y
scripturient Yay! I hope you didn‘t wait all this time to open it. The blanket probably needs one or two washes before it gets really soft and cosy (I have the same one). I hope you haven‘t bought the book for yourself in the meantime. It was on your TBR when I shopped for the package. :) I‘m really looking forward to the book you sent me. Haven‘t heard of the author yet but the story sounds intriguing. (edited) 1y

Jess7 I just bought non-prescription blue light blocking glasses to wear in my office at work while staring at a computer screen all day. They seem to work well with eye strain and fatigue. They have the option to order them as readers with magnification but luckily my close up vision hasn‘t dwindled, which is great considering my far away vision is awful!! My contacts are -6.25 and -5.75! 😫 2y
Book_in_hands @Jess7 I have the blue light coating on my reading glasses. I have 20/20 vision but the close up is fuzzy and straining on my eyes 2y

scripturient Hey Heidi, your #blanketandabook package is now on its way to you. Sorry for the hassle. They returned it because it was supposedly too big which it wasn‘t and after heated debates at the post office it‘s finally back on track. I‘m afraid it will probably be a few days late though. A zillion apologies for this - I feel really bad. :( 2y

Congrats to @MaleficentBookDragon so to honour your #letsplayagame #giveaway here is a pic of a game I played as a kid and still play today!! This crokinole board was always in the spare room at my Grandparents house, it was hand made by my step great-grandfather many, many years ago. A couple of years ago I asked my Grandmother for it. We still play it. My Dad made one for my sister for her Christmas gift this year!!

MaleficentBookDragon What a beautiful story. Explain the game to us. 2y
llwheeler Yes, crokinole! We played this all the time at the cottage 😊 2y
FantasyChick At risk of humiliating myself, my grandmother had this game when I was a kid and I swore it was a knitting loom. I never used the game for anything except twirling yarn around. They never corrected me, just let it happen 😂😂 2y
