Thank you Friedrich, for getting me through the day.

"-was such a tall, slim, pretty person and wore such lovely clothes. Her hair was like curly silk
and she had a delicate little nose which seemed to be disdaining things, and she had large laughing eyes.
All her clothes were thin and floating, and Mary said they were "full of lace."
They looked fuller of lace than ever this morning,
But her eyes were not laughing at all.
They were large and scared
and lifted imploringly to the fair boy officer's face.
"Is it so very bad? Oh, is it?" Mary heard her say."

And finally, the lovely ladies from loveology and the tea drinking english rose have awarded me with a lovely little prize. Both of you write and present your blogs beautifully, and I am obsessed with reading them. So thank you, thank you for being so kind to my little blog!
