Bath part 1 – The Admiral’s House

Tweet And so, I am back. Back after a wonderful trip to England and the Jane Austen Festival in Bath. I suppose it really goes without saying, but I did have such a great time! There is nothing quite like meeting up with lots of friends (old and new), parading around a beautiful, historic city dressed in pretty dresses!

These are in a medieval/fantasy style however, and that is what is most … Continue reading

The song is called Voi Che Sapete and I think any devoted Janeite will recognize it (at least those who have seen the 1995 version of Pride & Prejudice). This was filmed in February when I had been asked to sing at a small music event here close by where I live. I am occasionally asked to do something like that, but this was really the first time where I could pretty much … Continue reading
