Walk Near Basildon Park...
At the week-end we got away to the country for a break. (I had been finishing my revisions and had got to the stage where a change of scene was necessary as I couldn't 'see' the manuscript any more). Basildon Park is where they shot part of the Keira Knightly/Matthew Macfadyen Pride and Prejudice (2005) so of course we had to go into the house too. It is a National Trust property and there's a small exhibition about the shooting of the film. This costume is on display.
The country air seemed to do the trick, as I have sent the mansucript of another Byzantine novel (medieval) off to my editor. Fingers crossed!
