Thanks for the good luck wishes and sympathy yesterday! I thought of you all this morning and it helped me along. I got a tick (ha ha-my teaching was judged as good-an official term don't you know from ofsted. I don't know why I worry really) I am looking forward to a normal day tomorrow. I did a few more faces on tags tonight. They were inspired by the book I am reading at the moment. I am back with the Tudors again-I can't stay away for long!
The Queen's Fool by Philippa GregoryAbove are Lady Jane Grey and Queen Mary I
Lady Jane was Queen for nine days-from the 10th to the 19th July 1553. The poor thing seemed to have been used by all around her-her father in law the Duke of Northumberland being the main culprit. She spent her reign in the Tower of London. She was very scholarly. I remember one of my friends at secondary school wrote a lovely short story about her and I was really jealous and wished I had written it!
