“Jane O’ Lantern”

Tweet I saw this posted on the Facebook Jane Austen Festival page, and I just thought it was such a clever and fun way to carve a pumpkin! Carved, as I understand, by someone called Jenna Johnson.

Tweet And so at last the time has come, I’m off to Bath tomorrow for the Jane Austen festival (I thought I’d better metion why, in case anyone has miraculously managed to escape hearing that fact from me before…)!

Some of my Austen “stuff” :P

Tweet I was looking around my room this morning (my tiny room!) and thought about all the different Austen things I have there. I decided I’d take some pictures of some of it and show you some of my nice “stuff”. 🙂 First of all here are some of my precious books! And a close-up of the strictly Austen books (sorry you can’t see them too well…): Some of my (ok, not only “my” films….) lovely period dramas! My (yes, these are only mine!) fantastic music books!

Five years with Jane Austen

Tweet A few days ago for some reason we were talking about our travels, and suddenly remembered that it was exactly, on the day, five years since we arrived in Fiji (yeah I know, we acknowledge strange anniversaries like this in my family). And I realized too that then it must be more or less five years since I started reading my first Jane Austen book. I checked my old journal from back then (oh my! My spelling was horrid at the time! And the grammar wasn’t too fabulous either…) to see if I had marked down the exact date … Continue reading

It must be a sign of serious addiction…

Tweet I hope you’ve all been enjoying a wonderful Christmas! Here in Sweden we always celebrate on Christmas Eve, and not Christmas Day as most of the world does. So we had our celebration yesterday. It was a relaxed day at home. My grandmother is here and also two friends of ours. We had a delicious dinner with all the good things we usually have for Christmas (not a typical or traditional Swedish Christmas meal, since that has few dishes without meat). We all dressed up nicely and ate until we couldn’t force down another bite (almost). Then we opened … Continue reading
