My world is changing...my blogs are changing...I feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland...
perhaps I just need a cup of tea. I am in England...aren't I? Sometimes I wonder... how curious...
I had a Mad Hatter moment on Friday, when it was finally announced that we are
moving to Vietnam in 2012. Many thoughts went through my head..one being...will anyone
follow me at Finding My Way...in Vietnam? Decisions, decisions.... I am writing about those
decisions over here.
To keep my life in perspective, I added Pages under my blog photo and a few new things.
One being my Shop Around the Corner. For those of you..who, like me...love
Speaking of English movies and TV series...
Two of my favourites are wrapping up this week. I caught up with the last of Season Five on Doc Martin and will see the final episode of Downton Abbey tonight. I know I have a few American readers who equally enjoy both shows. My lips are sealed. :) Can I just say that you will enjoy both immensely!!
Lastly, I am sending thanks to fellow American expat, Michelloui @ The American Resident, for putting onto what looks to be a great little book. The Anglophiles amongst you should enjoy this one. Some Country Houses and Their Owners by James Lees-Milne. If you have not met Michelloui, she has a great blog filled with her 20 years of wisdom on living life in the UK. Please stop in and tell her Jeanne sent you. :)
|From Amazon UK....|
The delightful, gossipy diaries of James Lees-Milne describe his encounters with the owners of country houses - from eccentric lords and oil millionaires to raffish socialists - as he travelled over England saving properties for the National Trust. Here are sharply observed accounts of dinner with Vita Sackville-West at Sissinghurst; Winston Churchill's bedroom at Chartwell; T. E. Lawrence's dilapidated Dorset cottage; and war damage to a great house in Derby. All are infused with his love of beauty and his sympathy for those giving up their ancestral homes forever.
Yes, it looks like a great read!
Dinner calls my friends...and Downton Abbey follows.
I leave thanking you all for hanging out at Finding My Way in England...
you have made the journey all the sweeter for it. :))
