Life on the Golden Horn | Mary Wortley Montagu

Oh I loved this!! Mary was wife to the British Ambassador and sent lots of letters home as she travelled across Europe in 1718. The letters reveal so much about the lives of women at the time, it‘s all very gossipy but fascinating! Thank you so much Helen @squirrelbrain for sending this to me! 😀 #jbuk

squirrelbrain I‘m so glad you enjoyed it! I found her view of ‘veiled‘ women fascinating - the polar opposite of many in society feel today I think? 1mo
Tamra Sounds interesting! 1mo
Caroline2 @squirrelbrain true but I‘d like to see what these ‘Turkish veils‘ looked like as she said it made women more beautiful. Which I took to mean you could still see the woman‘s face unlike the modern burka. It was a fascinating read!! 1mo
kspenmoll Sounds fascinating! 1mo

I almost bought this one myself last week. #jbuk

How about this for the Best Postal Delivery Ever??!

Two parcels from lovely #jbuk littens - thank you so much @squirrelbrain & mystery person (I suspect @TrishB 😉). They‘re safely stashed away for weekend - Thank you 🥰

And a non-Litsy parcel (no return address) that I opened because it felt like tupperware. Chocolate brownies! Yum! (I did check whether the person I guessed sent them actually did before I ate too many 🤣😂)

Feeling v spoilt!

TrishB Great mail 😁 it is indeed me! It‘s that scruffy writing.... 2mo
RachelO @TrishB I had the Addams family postcard lined up alongside it for handwriting analysis - not scruffy at all! Thank you so much Trish 😁 2mo
TrishB Welcome 😘 2mo

squirrelbrain Mmm I think #chocolatebrowniemail may even be better than #bookmail 😋😲 😁 Also laughing that you were doing handwriting analysis! 2mo
RachelO @squirrelbrain Ha! The handwriting analysis on the brownies was a little higher stakes 🤣🤣🤣. Who sends brownies though the post with no note/return address??! 2mo
RachelO @squirrelbrain Not that I don‘t appreciate them, you understand!!! 2mo
squirrelbrain That‘d be a different birthday... on bail for dodgy dealing in special brownies! 😘 2mo
