A Normal Wednesday at Work?


I wore this Dickins & Jones dress to work on Wednesday. It was supposed to be a regular day at work, but sometimes things just don't want to go according to plan. There was a little boy who was inventive and supple enough to climb up to the highest book shelf in one of the grown up sections. He proudly sat on top of the books, but they aren't very steady, so he tumbled down. Fortunately he only had a mild concussion, but for a while the whole library was in a state of total chaos and panic. I still can't believe nobody saw him climbing up. His mother thought he was playing in the children's section, but apparently that lost it's appeal very soon. We called an ambulance and to make sure he would be all right they kept him over night at the hospital. Edward sent him a book and a huge bag of sweets with a card signed by the library staff. I'm glad nothing worse happened to him. I guess children don't stay put when they smell an adventure, it can happen in a flash.
One of our regular visitors is an old man who is a little bit lonely. He usually orders coffee and buys a paper in the downstairs bookshop which he then reads in the café. When there are customers he chats with them and when there aren't any he chats with Zoe. He always asks me to recommend him a good book. When I've done that he comes back the next week to talk to me about it. It's nice to interact with people like that.
I read books to children on Wednesday afternoons. It's an after school thing for children from 3 to 7 years old and their brothers and sisters. They are usually just learning to read and sometimes we use letters as a theme. It's the best afternoon of my week. I like it so much to do voices. It's one of the highlights of my work. On this particular Wednesday something amazing happened. Edward joined me, so we could read one of the stories together. It was a book about a chicken and a duck. I was the chicken and Edward the duck. We even did a little dance and I had a hard time keeping a straight face. Who would have thought that posh Edward would be so much fun without drinking some champagne first?
