My Happy Place
One of my friends told me yesterday that I was worrying about a particular situation entirely too much and that I needed to go to my happy place and forget about it. Too bad my happy place is an Ocean away (England I mean of course).
So the closest I can get is going to go see Brideshead Revisited. I honestly don't even care if the movie is crap. . .I just want to re-live Castle Howard.
Note: If you get a chance, read the book before seeing the movie - you won't be disappointed. And then after that, read Vile Bodies and watch the movie based on it - "Bright Young Things" (with Emily Moritmer and James McAvoy) and then read A Handful of Dust which is my absolute favourite book by Evelyn Waugh! Just don't ever read The Loved One, seriously, its awful.
Have an excellent weekend!

What a bizarre coincidence! Castle Howard is about an hour from where I live! Such a magical place...
