A comment on yesterday's post by Niki, over at Rural Writings in Canada, has alerted me to the fact that the People's Friend is 140 years old this year and they have published a special Anniversary Issue. Do the Royals have copies sent to Balmoral, do you think?
"One is feeling a little chilly out here - we shall go inside for some Earl Grey and we shall read our People's Friend. One always treats oneself to a good magazine when one is on holiday. One buys the Dandy for Philip"
A few years back, Bob gave me Alan Bennett's book "The Uncommon Reader" about HM's reading habits. I thought it was very cleverly written...
One day out of action at this time of year leaves so much catching up to do!
