Went to a jumble sale today and bought complete set of Antonia Forest for £5 plus all 'The Family from One End Street' books for £2! Feels like Christmas!

About turn the ringer off the phone and hide my mobile, then the rest of the weekend will be devoted to the Marlows.

That is like winning the lottery. Only better.

And brilliant because they're hard to find

Lucky you! Took me a decade to collect them all (last few from GGB).

Bloody hell, you are SOOOOO LUCKY

I am insanely jealous.

I have them all, but at considerably greater cost.

About to start 'The Cricket Term', what some would call a wasted weekend but it has been fab!!!

I am soooo jealous. I am desperate to read 'Peter's Room' which I never, ever read at school. (I've got the Family from One End Street still from childhood).

The Marlows and the Traitor is on e-bay right now for a cool £125. You got very lucky.
