Whilst moving books to allow the window fitters to fit a window, my wife and I were overjoyed when we found a five pence piece, only to have our celebrations cut short when we realised it was a Dutch five cent. To exasperate matters it was pre Euro.
However this story has a happy ending because about an hour later we did find a real 5p.
The end of this story is that the windows and door have been renewed. All I need to do now is put all the books somewhere that might allow customers into the shop. A couple of weeks at the very most optimistic.
