oh, good. a four-inch volume of mitfordian letters for me to read instead of doing whatever i'm supposed to be doing.
i forgot that her daughter had a name other than dinky. constancia! dinky was the name of my step-mother's horse. a popular name for the small and fair.
there are so many more mitford memoirs and biographies now than there were even five years ago. what happened? was there a movie or something?
