With 4 little la la’s running about I need a little escape from reality from time to time [truthfully, I needed this before the littles – – I mean, don’t we all?]. My choice of escape is usually, to another time or place, by way of a book or movie.
I mentioned France just the other day but it feels only right to chat about my even longer love of all things English. I can’t help but daydream of being in the English countryside, sipping on cup of tea and visiting with my dear English friend, Maggie. There is just always a piece of my heart that feels very at home in England.
Currently, I’m getting my British fix by way of Downton Abbey [a Masterpiece Classic on PBS which you can watch instantly on Netflix]. I’m totally hooked on the lives of both the noble family that inhabit this estate and the servants that run it. It’s a pretty great escape to another time and another place. I can assure you that. [I’m just trying to figure out what I’ll watch once I’m through with this series]. Do you have any favorite ways to escape? Favorite books? Favorite movies?
