Gentle readers, as many of you know, I have been laid up with a broken foot and have only recently begun to follow a full schedule again. So many friends and readers have wished me well, making me feel like a million dollars. Julie Wakefield from the fabulous blog Austenonly sent me a package from England that simply took my breath away: The DVD of Amanda Vickery’s outstanding BBC series, At Home With the Georgians, based on her book; an apron featuring images of Chawton Cottage and illustrations by Hugh Thompson; two Penguin Classics – Some Country Houses and their Owners by James Lees-Milne and Birds of Selborne by Gilbert White, and bookplates! Thank you, Julie. I love, love, love this package, which came from the heart.
