Mansfield Park

I find it surprising that I only have one quote from Jane Austen in my notebooks. I remember reading this sentence for the first time. How it challenged me and has had an impact on how I am to others.

Fanny has just arrived at her cousins...
'Nobody meant to be unkind, but nobody put themselves out of their way to secure her comfort.' Jane Austen

This springs to my mind, probably selfishly, as we move to a new area and I into a new job. Due to the move and BT not connecting our landline and therefore no internet until the 15th September....) there will be a blogging break (writing posts and leaving comments). And due to my new job I won't be able to find those cheeky half hour blogging moments during the working day either. So.....

There will be almost no blogging activity until the 15th September.


A gift to all of you for making me feel so welcome in this blogging community.
Thank you and see you soonish x


  1. I shall miss both posts and comments, but good luck with the move and new job anyway!

  2. Oh no! Come back soon - I need your quotes. I slipped the 'Love at First Sight' poem you found into my Hub's anniversary card and he totally got its meaning for us! Hope it all goes well and that you soon settle in to all areas of your new life.

  3. We will miss you. Good luck with your new job, how exciting! So many changes, new home, new job, hope you are getting used to both and learning to love them!
    Oh and I love that quote, it so perfectly describes that moment when no one is being exactly mean to you but you still don't really feel welcome. I'm sad to say it has happened to me more than once, and to others I am sure.

  4. I've been slow with comments lately and a little break does a body good...and I hope that everything is going well with you. Enjoy your new job and we'll see you when you return! xo


  5. Good luck with the move and the new job! I look forward to hearing from you when you are settled.

  6. I love that quote from Mansfield Park - in fact I love everything about Mansfield Park! Enjoying your photos and words.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
Thank you for taking the time.
