We went to the library today. No surprises there, it’s a common place to find us at any time but particularly during the school holidays. We’ll probably go tomorrow as well.
Pearl took out five books. As she took them out, the librarian smiled and said, “That should keep you going for the afternoon.”
Then her friend’s mum saw the small pile of books and said, “How long will it take you to read those – until tomorrow?”
Then we bumped into one of the school teachers at the supermarket on the way home, and she grinned and said, “Don’t finish them all before you get home!”
…And that is why we’ll probably be back at the library tomorrow!
(For the record, I think she has finished one and is half-way through a second, but I could be wrong – it might be her third).
