Will #bookshopday be a Blustery Day?

bambpoohAhead of Books Are My Bag’s Bookshop Day on Saturday 8th October, Gill Hart from Lindum Books in Bailgate, Lincoln, is ready to celebrate along with a new nonagenarian…

Winnie the Pooh, celebrates an important anniversary this year, it being 90 years since A. A. Milne wrote the very first Pooh story.

In all that time Pooh has made a special place for himself in the hearts of many generations of readers of all ages.

His apparently simple sayings and words of wisdom remain in our minds long after we have grown up!

Whether we first met Pooh through the original books or the Disney movie, at this time of year who doesn’t at some time remember A Rather Blustery Day?

A Rather Blustery Day
Hum, dum, dum, dee, dee, dum
Hum, dum, dum
Oh the wind is lashing lusterly
And the trees are thrashing thrusterly
And the leaves are rustling gusterly
So it’s rather safe to say
That it seems that it may turn out to be
It feels that it will undoubteadly
Looks like a rather blustery day today
It seems that it may turn out to be
Feels that it will undoubteadly
Looks like a rather blustery day today
