Visiting an Old Friend

Sherlock Holmes 2

Mr. H and I have been sneaking away to London at lunch for the past month or two. We visit at 221 B Baker Street, to be precise...

I got my hubby the complete set of the Granada Series Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) for Christmas -- I'll come clean; it really was a present for both of us.

We've been fans of Mr. Holmes for a very long time. In fact, when we were going to TAMU and started dating, I gave my Mr. H a second look when I saw the canon on his shelf at his apartment. :-) Later, we always made sure we caught Sherlock Holmes on PBS. (Wasn't Jeremy Brett just brilliant as Holmes? He is the only Sherlock Holmes for me.)

Job searching's been a little discouraging of late, and we've enjoyed our little lunchtime escape to Victorian England. It's the little things that get you through!

What are the little things do you do for yourself?

O it's so sad that lately I have been neglecting myself. When I'm good, I love to escape to a nice hot bubble bath with a good book. I also love to have a little lunch with a good friend and chat the afternoon away.

I'm just now catching up on all the blogs I missed while on vacation. I'm going to go out and Hoo-dee-hoo here in a minute! I love that you read together. Reading is my escape. Jarom and I play scrabble. We used to have an on going game tucked under our bed, but now we just do it online. He's wins everytime, but it's still fun.

You are *so* lucky to have these dvds !!!

If you do like SH or anything related, have you read the Enola Holmes mysteries ? I'm only at book 1 but it's very interesting.
