I know I said I was on vacation, but I couldn't go without passing on this bit of news:
After bawling my eyes out* last week watching the rerun showing of Cranford on PBS, I was elated to find out a new chapter to the saga; Return to Cranford, is premiering tomorrow. So if you were a fan of the original I suggest you plop yourself down in front of the TV with some cake and a hot cup of tea. It may or may not be as satisfying as the first one (I vow not to go and check the British reviews) but I'm sure it will still be a great treat.
And again, I'll see you in a bit! :)
*In fact, I believe I cried more this time than during the first viewing.
