This one has been christened with a trip to the movies with a dear friend. We saw The Duchess, which I enjoyed very much, though now I have to drink Earl Grey tea all the time, and I'll probably never think of a Devonshire tea the same again. The costumes were spectacular. As soon as I got a moment I googled Duchess Georgiana of Devonshire. There were a few liberties taken with the plot, but in general I felt it was a very interesting movie. Life was so different for women in the 18th century.

Mud pies occupied a whole morning.
Other than that, I did a bit of sewing, a redwork piece for a friend's birthday, a couple of blouses for myself.
Sometimes the quiet times are the best times.
