Time Travel

I had a hair appointment yesterday that I arrived a bit early for so I took the opportunity of having some spare time to browse in the charity shop next door.
.
Hidden away on a bottom shelf was this collection of children's Ladybird books. I had a quick look through and decided to buy them.
.

.
It wasn't until I got home I had a proper chance to sit down and look at them in any great detail.
.
Now, my memory isn't that great (hence jellybrain) and I had completely forgotten about this book, (no reason I should remember it I suppose) but the instant I saw this cover, I was transported back to my childhood. I was mesmerised.
.
.
Even more so when I saw this page.
.
.
I don't remember any of the story or many of the other pictures in the book, but these pictures really stirred up some long-forgotten memories and I spent ages absorbed in them.
.
.
I don't know why those pictures in particular jumped out at me, but it was nice to see them again and to do a spot of time-travelling!
.
I was going to give the books to boy*jelly to have as he enjoys learning to read, but I think they might go on my bookshelf instead!

They do weird things to your brain these books do. :0)
I did the same thing last year. Bought some that we had as kids and the feeling that seeing those pictures gave me was WEIRD!! hehe
