Peak and Paradise

Just back from Scout camp up in Edale in Hope Valley Derbyshire. I did a far from convincing impression of Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice heroine for those who don't know - if such people can POSSIBLY exist!) in being inspired and filled with awe by the beauty of the Peak District.Unfortunately I didn't visit Pemberley and meet a bedraggled Mr Darcy fresh from his ride home. No for me it was just lots of bedraggled scouts as it rained almost the whole time I was there. It was still FABULOUS though and I'll post something mroe substantial and with pictures when I've washed the mud off!

oh thank goodness, there is another austen fan out there. no one i know likes her.

have just finished 'the jane austen book club' by karen joy fowler (actually read for my own book club) about a group of people who get together to read all of the austen novels.

i liked it very much.
