Him Indoors is away this week with Blue Eyed Boy, as a parent helper on the Primary Seven week away at an outdoor centre. So on Monday night I produced my newly purchased "Mansfield Park" DVD and Firstborn, Penultimate and Youngest Children and I watched it together, with me explaining it all as we went along. Currently, they are just finishing watching it for the third time (at their own instigation - I didn't MAKE them do it, honest). And now they're off to bed and Firstborn is going to be allowed to stay up to watch the concluding part of Lost in Austen which we've been enjoying. Well, I've been enjoying both the series and Firstborn's squeals of frustration as it's all going wrong. "Oh, no, no, NO! Grrrr!" (For those not in the know, a modern day Jane Austen fan gets hurtled back in time into the Bennett household of Pride and Prejudice, and, because she has traded places with Lizzie, things are departing increasingly far from the script. It's had some very funny bits in it too).
I'm AnneDroid and I'm a Prideandprejudicaholic. Looks like the female offspring are following in my footsteps. Oops. 9pm. Gotta go.
