I'm in London in the 1880s where I have been quite intrigued by steam underground trains - I can't see where the devil I'm going or what station I'm supposed to get off at! I've also attended with my daughter the newest of customs - a juvenile party where a lot of cakes have been eaten and games played, at the end of which gifts were handed out to guests. Us Victorians are quite an innovative lot, aren't we!

Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Now alternating between Yorkshire (1903) and London (both present day and 18th century).

Normandy (1067) and Northumbria (868)

Like time travel, except I don't need a TARDIS.

I'm caught between 530 and 1915.
Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. Never allow thoughts of gain lead you into the pursuit of evil. Never back away from an enemy. Either fight or surrender. It is not enough to say I will not be evil. Evil must be fought wherever it is found.

I'm in occupied France in 1917 and also in present day London fighting for my right to keep a painting my late husband gave me as a present.

In St. Vincent's Hospital in Greenwich Village in the borough of Manhattan in New York City, coincidentally the same hospital where I was born!
