One has had an utterly delightful afternoon. Earlier in the day, with the weather taking a turn for the better, one took the opportunity for a promenade, thence to sit most quietly in the gentle sunshine acquainting oneself with the affairs of the current day, before plying needle and thread through cotton in the company of Miss Jane Austen.
Of course, Miss Austen was not here in person; it was through the medium of Digital Video Disc that the enjoyment was obtained, namely “Sense and Sensibility” (with Mr Hugh Grant, Mr Alan Rickman and Miss Emma Thompson), thence the beginnings of “Pride and Prejudice” with the most delectable Mr Colin Firth (be still my beating heart) as the tall, dark and handsome Mr Darcy
In between longing gazes at Mr Darcy, one did manage to complete another “Steampunk”
and as The Golfer is now returned from his day chasing a white ball over pastures, one shall have to return to the present day, stop flirting with Mr Darcy – such outrageous behaviour in a married woman – and repair to the scullery to make preparations for our event repast.
Your faithful servant
Achieved: last row on Kumo and 1 Steampunk block
