Please accept my apologies this is a late post as will be the 13th of Decembers. I need a lovely shiny new laptop to fall out of my advent calendar, or just find one on a pavement whilst walking home, or maybe a Christmas angel could send me one magically…
So for today’s giveaway I wanted to give you a book that I haven’t read yet but will DEFINITELY be curling up with over Christmas and that is Deborah Devonshire’s latest collection of memoirs, essays, ‘occasional writings’ and the like ‘All In One Basket’ which is made up of two of her other works ‘Home To Roost’ and ‘Counting My Chickens’ (so actually I have read some of it but re-reading it will be a joy) and a few lovely extras.
I love Debo’s sense of humour, no matter how wry or how arch it gets – in fact the more the merrier, and as you will know I love all things Mitford sister, of which she is the last. So while I am curled up with it maybe you can be to?
All you need to do is leave a comment below telling me what the best story about a grand old house you have read is (this links in with the fact that Debo writes a lot about Chatsworth, though not in a fictional way) and two of you could be very lucky and have some utter comfort and joy ahead. You have until 11am on the 16th of December. Good luck.
