My Jane Austen Week

Standard

It all began with my friend Jo asking me to look after her hairy boys while the family went on holiday. I have done this in previous summers and always enjoyed my time with the dogs, Humphrey,on the left and Bernie on the right. I called this time with them my Jane Austen week as I would take lovely walks in the countryside,do lots of reading and some sewing and generally be a lady of leisure for the week.

The countryside seemed at its best and I felt rested and inspired all at the same time. It made me realise that we don’t need to travel very far to feel renewed and all this is 5 miles from where I live! We just need to take time to just BE!

And how about this as a reminder of how lucky we all are…..a little building in the churchyard used to educate the poor of the parish. Makes you think doesn’t it?

Such fun and I am looking forward to my next stint as Miss Austen……shame no sighting of a moist Mr Darcy…but a girl can’t have everything…can she?
