The Family is away from the Hall during this Easter week-end. Mrs Daffodil will be taking a brief holiday from this venue to read some improving book and perhaps dip into a chocolate crème egg.

Mrs Daffodil wishes all of her readers a delightful week-end, full of spring-tide eggs, rendered in chocolate or in beautiful enamels by Faberge. She will return to her regular programme on Wednesday next.

Mrs Daffodil invites you to join her on the curiously named “Face-book,” where you will find a feast of fashion hints, fads and fancies, and historical anecdotes

You may read about a sentimental succubus, a vengeful seamstress’s ghost, Victorian mourning gone horribly wrong, and, of course, Mrs Daffodil’s efficient tidying up after a distasteful decapitation in A Spot of Bother: Four Macabre Tales.
