Something Old, Something New…

So, there I was with my eldest the other evening and he was reading The Growing Pains Of Adrian Mole.


“Where’d you get that?” I asked him.

“I found it on one of the bookshelves, dad…”

So I had a look at it.


Turns out it was buried somewhere back where no-one knew. I certainly had no idea I still had it. It was from 1986. My copy from when I was 13 and now he, at 11, was carrying it on into his life.

Nothing like that to make you feel old and young all at the same time…

  1. Ah no way! I literally just picked that up last night in Bodega in Dun Laoghaire last night! They have a ‘leave a book & take a book’ thing up there – very cool πŸ™‚
