[quote=""SonjaMarie""]What happened? SM[/quote] The fencer thought that she'd advanced to the gold medal match but the referee reset the clock from zero to 1 second, which meant that the opponent managed to score a "sudden-death" touch. She sat on the podium/match area (don't follow fencing, so apol...

Have had the days between Christmas and New Years off work (company closure), so have had heaps of time to do housework & other neglected chores! The biggest accomplishment was tidying up the library - both SLOC and I have bought far too many books this year that have been lurking in heaps ready to ...

[quote=""MLE""]My daughter had me, and I got back from the candlelight service to find that she had taken an assortment of family photos and done an entire wall of the dining room in a collage of coordinating frames and pictures! It looks great, and I couldn't think of any present I would rather hav...

I'll have to go look up the Matchmaker books too - I've read quite a few of the Hamish Macbeth books, and some of the standalones, but didn't realise she wrote others as well.

I'm not doing NaNo properly - I'm just far too busy in November with everything else to devote all my "spare" time to writing, but SLOC and I are doing a modified version. We've made a deal to write at least 100 words a day - which he can do quite easily as he does write most days! But I've been goi...

[quote=""LoobyG""]I quite liked Jane Eyre Bec, but I know what you mean - there's been so many productions, it's difficult to see what could be new about it.

I read somewhere once - maybe in one of the critical works on her? - that Heyer didnt' like Simon the Coldheat at all, and wouldn't let it be republished once the inital print-run had finished. It wasn't republished until after she died - if I'm remembering things correctly, of course! It's also the...
