By the 1880’s tea drinking became an upper class ritual.

A popular household manual from the 1880’s ‘Enquire With Upon Everything’ instructs on how to make the perfect brew.
- Use freshly boiled water, not exhausted by prolonged boiling
- Scald the pot with hot water then empty…Continue

Grace visits the Book Wenches and asks:
Is there a stigma attached to reading romance?
I think so.
It is only since becoming a published author of historical romance that I ‘came out’ and admitted to reading the genre.

As a veterinarian I’m constantly surprised by the resilience of the feline species. This week alone a 17 year old cat with kidney failure successfully underwent dental attention, a stray cat lost a leg but was eating the same night and a kitten fell 40 feet with barely a scratch to show for it!

Research into this fable led me to ancient Egypt. The ancient Egyptians believed…Continue

This week’s historical trivia unashamedly looks at Victorian sayings that involve cats.
If a thief talked about a ‘Cat’, the chances are he wasn’t referring to our feline friends but a lady’s muff. Similarly if he mentioned ‘Freeing a cat,’ best hold on tight to your possessions, because he was about to steal something.

This weeks historical saying is "Putting the Cart before the Horse."
I’m sure you’re familiar the expression ‘putting the cart before the horse’. But this saying, as well as describing a world turned upside down, in the 16th century was also a timely warning against rebellion.
