book magic  
miss alex_faerie sent me the most amazing parcel; it was the only nice thing of the day, really. deliciously long letters (oh grape scented ink !), beautiful faerie figurines, photos, cards, beads, jewelry, a wristband she made, hot chocolate drinking mix, and my favourite thing: this gorgeous little book, a scrapbook of magical places & moments in england. oh my ! i can't stop smiling as i read her beautiful letter and i keep picking up the book and touching the pictures and falling in love with all the beauty that's inside. thankyou so much, you are a sweetheart ♥

the other boleyn girl is wonderful. i read it at lunchtime at work and drift off to 1523, pretending to be in Kent, in London, in Northumberland. 14 years old and seducing the king; tafetta skirts and long hair in plaits and we should crown her with flowers ! i come back to 2004 with a thud and there are phones ringing and car accidents and arguing in offices. and my head is crowded and i want to run off to Hever castle and have a rest in the country. just for a little while, please ?

eee yay you got it! was it all ok? not broken or anything? my dad thought that the figurines might break which was why they were all wrapped up so heavily. :D glad you like it though my dear, i promise future ones will be better and i will never take as long to send it again. i utterly promise. xxxxxxxxxxx

I just got back from england- my home. I feel incredibly deflated, partly because england is that to me, and because it is home, and because when I arrived back in america I already felt weary, and humid, and it did not bode well. But, everything is a challenge, and if we look carefully it can all be quite fun, all comedy ("or tragedy as aristotle would dually argue"). I do hope your trip goes well- when is it set for? xo
