Good Afternoon everyone,
It’s been a while since I wrote to you and I feel terrible for being so absent during this month, April did not go exactly as I thought it would.
This month started really well for me because I took some days off and went to a Comic Con in Belgium with my husband and 2 friends who live in Paris. I loved spending these days with them but the main reason I went to this Comic Con was to have a chance to meet Gillian Anderson.
I don’t know if many of you know this, but if there is something I love more than JAFF, it is The X-Files! I grew up watching the show, it was an important part of my teenage years and it continues to be very close to my heart. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen every single episode of the 11 seasons but it has certainly been more than 5 times, so meeting Gillian Anderson, and having the opportunity to be with her at the VIP Meet & Greet was an unforgettable experience to me 🙂
I already liked Gillian Anderson, but I left Belgium loving her! She is a very interesting person who has been focusing her energy in the fight for women’s rights and equality lately. She wrote a very interesting book called We – A Manifesto for Women Everywhere which I highly recommend. I am very lucky to have a signed hardback copy of it thanks to Mira Magdo from Obsessed With Mr. Darcy who was a sweetheart and offered it to me a few months ago, but the book is also available in other formats such as kindle and audiobook, if this is a theme that interests you, you should check it out.
After returning from Belgium time flew by! I had a surgery scheduled for last week so I pretty much spent my time working hard trying not to leave any pending items for my colleagues in the office, and before I knew it, I was already home recovering from the surgery.
The first days have been a bit rough, and I’m still recovering, but I’m keeping positive thinking that the worst has passed and that it can only get better from now on.
I hope to be able to catch up with you and resume my regular posts twice a week at From Pemberley to Milton, and the first step for it is to announce the winners of the giveaways I hosted last month, so without further ado, the winners are:
