Yes, I'm out here and I'm starting to be a Mitford fan. Two years ago
I read Love in a Cold Climate and the Pursuit of Love and I really
enjoyed the send-ups of the British upper class and the 1920s
flappers. I find Uncle Matthew's attitude to Europe a leetle
offensive. She really is a good storyteller and humourist, and I also
find her life very interesting.

P.S. Where did you go walking in the UK? Any interesting Mitford
