Mrs. Hughes’ answer to the age old question.

Dear homeowner whose sprinklers are on EVERY morning when I walk my dog past your house:

Just to let you know…California is in a horrible drought! Fancy a trip to Folsom Lake? No? How about Folsom Gulch, then?

Oh, and your lawn still looks horrible, so…

From real life, discussing Downton Abbey.
A play-by-play describing a very important scene. Do you know which one? @kouw you already saw this; don’t give away the answer! :-)
(I suppose it’s either really obvious or it isn’t)

You nerds (said by a proud nerd)! I love this - and I’m not going to give it away! :) Love it!
P.S. - definitely plotted out the pantry-kitchen-sitting room triangle, but never drew it out by hand.

You all know what it is! Yaaaay! I feel so not-alone in my insanity! Let us never reveal the secret… :)

A housekeeper is responsible for the household account book and she had to made sure that the family didn't spend more money than they earned.' - Mrs Hughes, keeper of the keys, housekeeper of Downton Abbey.

I’ll just leave this here…

Cannot wait for September January.

And I’ll continue to reblog this like mad until then. Or forever. Yeah, probably forever…

For Vee.

Here you go. I slapped this together just now and really quickly so forgive the highly amateurish quality. If I had time to find one for S2, it would’ve been better. But here is their theme as it appears in 1.01, 3.03, and 4.04.

Thank you for putting this together. I never noticed their theme before — probably because it’s so simple, so quiet.  It blends right in with the house. (Just like them… you guize… it’s a paaaraaalleeel… It’s been there all along…) *swoon*

Thanks especially for including that scene from 4.04.  I’ve been craving that scene and it’s lovely to be able to watch it now without digging out the DVD. “It changes you from where I’m looking.” GUH.
