The next event I have planned…

Tweet In my last post I hinted slightly at the fact that I have got another occasion planned where I will get to use my Regency outfit again. I will tell you what that is now. In May next year I will be going to Florence, in Italy, to take part in the Jane Austen Weekend hosted there by the Jane Austen Society of Florence! I met the lady who arranges and runs it all (at least I believe she is the one who does that) in Bath when I was there, and received some information about this weekend. I … Continue reading

That was so much fun! Suddenly I had all the energy and creativity in the world it felt like! … Continue reading

Today’s biking adventure

Tweet Today I am just posting a few pictures from today’s adventures. It is my grandmother’s 70st birthday and she was here with one of her friends. We decided to celebrate this day by taking our bikes and going for a ride around the lake. It is approximately a 30 kilometer ride, we thought it would be a fun way of celebrating your 70st birthday! It was a lovely day, the weather was cold, but bright and sunny. It took us quite a long time, but that was mostly because we stopped so many times. Like in this beautiful little … Continue reading
