Yes, I realize I am probably the last person on Earth to start watching Downton Abbey. As I am still very cautious about using my back (how can walking into my kitchen holding a bag of sugar activate a spasm???) I've been binge watching Downton Abbey. I know, I know, most have watched the whole series, but I believe I'm now on season 4. I'm a coffee drinker (obviously... hence the name of my blog), but I've revisited tea drinking. You just cannot watch Downton without tea in your hand, or sitting on your bedside table.
My favourite quote (and I've left a bit out of this quote, so forgive me) is, "All life is a series of problems which we must try to solve... until at last we die." This was spoken by the character of The Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley.
Before you start to give me advice about my back, trust me, I'm pursuing things, have appointments, have taken action, am on prescription muscle relaxants (and yes, for most people they cause extreme drowsiness, but I've always been the one for whom the small print applies... no drowsiness here!).
Also, no spoilers, please. At the moment, Carson has been asked to head up some war memorial, Edith is visiting the home of the farmers who took in her baby, and, god forbid, the local school teacher has been invited to the Abbey for a gathering to be Tom's guest.
I know... last person on Earth.
At times, my spirit animal.
