The Victorian House: Domestic Life from Childbirth to Deathbed
Opal: A Life of Enchantment, Mystery, and Madness
I still feel guilty, though, so there'll be no more frivolities before the move. Yes indeed, last weekend's trip to TO was a success, with Eric & me managing to snag ourselves one quarter of a charming fourplex ! It's a two bedroom with hardwood flooring and plenty of character, situated in a pleasant midtown neighbourhood. Who could ask for more ?! I'm so excited ! Though I will miss Montréal, I'm relieved at being able to bypass the obstacles of living in a city where the native tongue escapes me. Someday I'll learn French, I'm sure, but that terrible sense of urgency is no longer weighing on my mind.
Now I just have to master whatever language it is they speak in Toronto.
