At the moment I am quite swamped at the moments with tons of 1940's posts to write and projects of a brand new month to start, so instead of my well organised monthly post you get a rambly list of things I've done this January:
- Reading Jane Eyre (and finishing it this time)
- Squeeing over costumes in the new Agent Carter episodes
- Planning my 1940's theme week
- Thinking unproportionally much about the 40's
- Getting a delightful surprise when I woke one morning to find everything covered in snow
- Making a mental photo shoot when I walked along a hedge and saw every single twig and leaf covered in frost
- Spending quality time with "my" cat (which isn't actually mine, but I keep him company when his owners are away)
- Procuring new dresses for my 40's/50's wardrobe
- Playing lots of Tchaikovsky on the piano
- Spending way too much time watching Netflix
- Watching the Sherlock Christmas Special in the cinema with like minded nerdy friends
1. What period dramas did you view in January?
None, I'm ashamed to say...but I kind of knew that would happen when I entered that challenge.
2. What is your favourite Charles Dickens film adaption?
Olive Twist. For that is the only one I have seen this far.
3. Would you rather visit Pemberley (Mr. Darcy's residence) or Downton Abbey (Crawley family residence)? Why?
Downton Abbey! Whereas I'm sure Pemberley is lovely, it is a fictional place where Downton Abbey is Highclere Castle in real life - a place i would love to visit someday.
4. If you could be any character in a Jane Austen novel for a whole day who would you be and why would you want to be that character?
This one took some thought... I'm choosing to be Emma Woodhouse, for wouldn't want to be "handsome, clever and rich", being the leading lady of the town, living in a mansion and doing whatever one pleased with no financial worries? For one day, at least, it would be delightful!
5. What period dramas are you looking forward to viewing in February 2016?
The list is long!
I recently bought Miss Austen Regrets so I'm really looking forward to watching that. And as I finally finished Jane Eyre, now I can see the movie version (which I have wanted to ever since it came out).
