So...what did we think of last night's episode? As much as it was the Christmas one, it wasn't overly Christmassy! I did enjoy the servants' dinner with their Christmas crackers and paper hats! The moment when the tree was lit must've been such a magical one!
I was impressed with Lord Grantham's reaction to Mary's news. His reply that she isn't the first Grantham to make a mistake leaves me wondering if he is referring to his dalliance with Jane or some other family scandal.
Wasn't the conversation between the Dowager Countess and Daisy lovely? It added such a human touch between the highest and lowest on the totem pole.
I can't wait to see what happens with Mr Bates - surely they will find the real murderer...or have they already?
Lavinia's little appearance at the very end was just perfect and Mary was right to make Matthew kneel...on gravel, in the snow. Le sigh!
I can't wait for season 3 to come in September - in the meantime I will listen to the soundtrack, watch the DVDs and amuse myself creating Downton Abbey ribbon....
Keep Calm and Wait For Carson.
I love you more than Downton.
If you would like to order your own custom ribbon please email me at RoyalRibbon@yahoo.com
I think my next one will say...Keep Calm and Act Like Lady Mary
Have a fabulous day!
