Thistle Manor

“‘I’ve told you before, if we’re mad enough to take on the Crawley girls, we have to stick together.’” (Matthew Crawley to Tom Branson)

Well. . . I would like to report that life at Thistle Manor is not as exciting, or as glamorous or as dramatic as life at Downtown Abbey.  Like millions of others, I was glued to the television set on Sunday night to watch the wedding of Lady Mary and Matthew and all the other shenanigans.  One of my favorite scenes and lines is when Matthew Crawley says to Tom Branson:  "I've told you before, if we are mad enought to take on the Crawley girls, we have to stick together."  Ahh, I think this has the beginnings of a good friendship. 

This weekend I have plans of planting myself in the stitching chair with Hannah Breed and making progress on the alphabets, while watching Downtown Abbey reruns.


  1. Don't you love it? I love Downton Abbey!

  2. I recorded the first two seasons and have started on the third. I am totally addicted to Downton Abbey. I love the clothes the ladies wear.

  3. I love Downton too. Series three is the best yet. One of the few programmes I watch.

  4. Sat and watched the whole of series 3 on Saturday. We don't get it until later in the year Down Under. Its so lovely to sit and get wrapped up in these lovely series. We order them from England.
