Mr Darcy emerging from the pond

I wonder what Jane Austen would have thought of this scene she never wrote becoming so iconic in relation to Pride and Prejudice! (Don’t shoot me, I don’t find Colin Firth even remotely attractive!).

You can buy Darcy in poster form or a set of Darcy at Pemberley postcards from Pemberley Pond.

The Week: 13th – 19th January

The view from our kitchen at about 8:30pm on our hottest evening this week.

This week was all about the heatwave. I achieved about a third of as much as I wanted to, because Canberra’s temperature hovered around 40°C (104°F) every day. In the middle of all of that we celebrated Ukrainian New Year on Tuesday – champagne when it’s over forty degrees isn’t the smartest thing to drink! We’re supposed to take down the Christmas decorations today, but it’s the last thing I feel like doing at the moment.

And from the other side of the house.

I think my latest Regency/Victorian reading spree is coming to an end. I really do wish publishers would package their books better. You never know if you’re going to pick up a serious historical drama/romance or a Disney-style romp where 19th century people all run around having casual sex, getting divorces on a whim and chatting in modern American slang. I’m getting tired of the second kind. If you want to write contemporary characters, then write contemporary books!

Of course, I’ll be reading more of them (I’m addicted), but it’s time to extend my reading in some other genres, too.
