Weather....gorgeous...

I have been sitting in the garden all day reading Claire Tomalin's exemplary biography of Jane Austen and drinking apple juice, while Patsington works on his thesis in the kitchen with the back doors open so he can have fresh air and we both can listen to John Coltrane on the kitchen stereo. Ooooh, I absolutely love summer! Even though I know we'll probably be back in early Spring tomorrow.

Oooh, I'm glad you're enjoying the biography. I'm being completely hopeless at getting it to the top of my pile, but I'm looking forward to it.

Sounds like a lovely day!

I just hope it lasts till I get there!

Last week the temperature reached a mighty 13 degrees, and Lo, there was much rejoicing.

The revision is kicking my arse, but I'll try to remember to phone you tonight or tomorrow.

It's supposed to stay nice this week (touch wood), so there's actually a chance you'll get to see Dublin in the sunshine!

Tomalin's Austen biography is the best. It was the first Austen bio I read, and when I've picked other up I end up really annoyed with the mistakes or wacky speculation that the authors put in because they seem to think Austen's life wasn't interesting enough. There's a ton of interesting facts about her life, and Tomalin fills in all the peripheral info as well.
