Photo a day...11th April
As a passionate Jane Austen fan (who isn't?) I had aways wanted to come here to the house she used to stay in in Winchester and where she actually died. She is also buried in the Cathedral close by.
(NB I didn't take this photo....my friend did!)
I really enjoyed the recent series on ITV...the Persuasion was really really good, and Northanger Abbey was also good. Both of these had very good actresses playing the lead parts. However, I didn't think much of Mansfield Park. I don't think Billie Piper made a very good heroine. Fanny Price was supposed to be religious.....! Gemma Redgrave was good as Lady Bertram.
I now have all the Austen novels on DVD or video.....they really help to pass the time when I'm ironing or quilting!
