One to share with your English staff, and any of the many kids who have sighed over Mr Darcy, or other Austen heroes...
If that doesn't work, try this:
A delightful bonbon.
Found it here.
Which reminds me, if you want to appal yourself and others, and you have access to the recent Keira Knightley/Matthew Macfadyen Pride and Prejudice film, do investigate the extras on the DVD for the alternative ending filmed for the US market. I myself personally can't believe that the US market is so dumb as to need the travesty provided... although it was fun watching English teachers go green at the gills when I showed it to them. The kids were universally scornful.
Well, only three weeks left of term and this school year (for those outside Oz, our school year runs along with the calendar year). I'll try to post a few bits and pieces here before the summer hols arrive - our Christmas decorations this year are even better than last year (and easy and cheap as chips!) and if you're really really good I'll let you in on how to obtain over 1000 bookmarks for 50c. Really.
Thanks for the many kind messages sent while I've been quiet - I appreciate the thoughts and kindness very much.
