Just emerged from 1820s London, where I was mixing with some very villainous sorts! I was Finished reading The Resurrectionist by James Bradley. Despite hearing some very negative reviews of the this book, I enjoyed it a lot.

I'm in Forks, USA, and have just been rescued from an out of control van, by a handsome vampire.

I'm not sure. I think it might be around 1200 or so at Windsor - I'm just trying to keep on the trail of Lady Moppet! Not so easy. There are problems of synchronisation of our Space-Time continuums and she keeps buzzing back and fore to buy lingerie and other toys for King John!

Heeee, that's two of us. He's just posted in the cat lovers thread so I'm really concerned.

At home with a good book and the cat...

I'm in 1537 with Matthew Shardlake, lawyer to Lord Cromwell. I was 'monkeying' about in Scarnsea, but have had to travel to London to do some more research.
