Plague Never Looked So Good

Two weeks in a stately home on the site of a 13th century leprosy/plague hospital?  Bliss!

I've just heard that I've been accepted for a Hospitalfield House Interdisciplinary Residency, from 23rd April to 7 May, to focus on a poetry project with exciting options to collaborate with the other inmates.  (I'm just not comfortable with calling them practitioners - the word suggests it should be followed by of the evil arts to me - not sure why.) 

I've pulled a few photos off the internet to show you, but rest assured I will be taking my camera with me -

Didn't I say February was going to be good?

How fantastic - congratulations! Who could fail to come up with something wonderful in those surroundings (so no pressure at all then...) Will you have a lady's maid supplied too?

Ah, yes, someone to fold my taffeta frock ...
