“…we all know at times what it is to be wearied in spirits. Mine, I confess, are exhausted”

That quote is from Emma, and I think we can all relate to it now and then. There are times filled with fun, dancing and laughter, and there are times which are less merry and enjoyable. I have not been having the greatest last few weeks, nothing major or dreadful has happened, just things have been a bit stressful and up and down emotionally. This has effected my blog and I haven’t gotten around to writing the posts I have planned. But I think things are starting to look up, and soon I will be able to make plans and decisions for the coming months (I have been waiting with frustration for a decision to be made regarding one idea and I will finally know for sure within the next few days how things will be with that, which will be a relief). So that is good.

You all know I’m a nerdy fan of Jane Austen and similar authors and their books. Sometimes it feels to me like the characters in some of these books are not just fictional imaginations, but that they are actual real people. And on more than one occasion have I found myself looking to these fictional people for comfort and advice. And even though I know that they are not real, and neither are their storiesl it does make me feel better to think of how all these characters that I love so well all go through times of trouble, times that were less fun and times when they felt frustrated with everything around them. But they all make it through. Things get better again and are good and fun again. And that comforts and inspires me, and I know that if they can do it, then so can I.

I am not going to write anything more now, I just wanted to quickly check in with you all and also share a lovely little music video of Jane Austen movie clips. I have lots of posts planned about series and movies as well as about a couple of new sewing projects. So bear with me and stay tuned for those, and keep yourself warm in this long, dragged out cold spring! 🙂
