Happy Sunday (and the start to Jane Austen’s birthday week)! First, I have posted a pic that relates to Elena’s fascinating pet post a few days ago. This is the photo I took of the memorial to Lilly the spaniel at Chiswick House. It’s too far away to read the writing, but you can see it’s quite an elaborate stone. She must have been a well-loved pet.

Second, here are the answers to the Austen-Christmas quiz! I got all but 1 of them right, which is amazing for me, as I’m usually a total doofus at quizzes.
1) C
2) A
3) C
4) C
5) B
6) A
7) C
8) C
9) B (I got this wrong–for some reason, I always have it in my head that she was born in 1776. But I was never good with dates anyway)
10) C (just like now!)
