Another Time + Place


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?

Needing a bit more of a Brit fix?  You can read my other posts on England here.

    ooh you would love Upstairs Downstairs the newest series (it was so good! And very fashionable decor and clothing wise too.)

    I wonder if you could just watch it online somewhere though?
