This is an exposure of what the History Girls get up to when they’re not writing! Yesterday about eleven of us stepped through the front door into the marvellous space, texture and light of No. 13 Lincoln’s Inn Fields in London like welcome guests at someone’s private home. Later in the day we were REAL guests in a home equally filled with the most marvellous space, texture and light… but a 21st century one.
A 'proper' version of our visit to the John Soane Museum will be written up by Linda Buckley-Archer in her post on the 2nd Dec. But herewith is a 'graphic' account of the rest of the day. We met at Michelle Lovric’s wonderful Thames-side home for what can only be described as a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach... and a ‘posh’ jumble sale… all proceeds to go to an orphanage in Kenya that looks after AIDS orphans with disabilities called, By Grace.
