Brixham Blixen

"I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills".

This is a shot of me, taken by Mr Metrosexual in his Brixham garden yesterday.   Supposedly I am doing a veritable impression of the Danish author Karen Blixen.  Tenuous I think.  There wasn't a lion in sight!


  1. Nice photo…I have a matching glass of wine before me at the moment…don't think I have commented before on your blog, but have been reading you for a few weeks now..not sure how I found you, but it was from a comment of yours on a blog I read. I love reading blogs from interesting people..dont do one myself, but when I comment and the blogger replies it is a bit like having a " pen friend"…..yes I am that old! Just looked at an old post of yours re smiling and chatting to strangers…I do it all the time..especially when dog walking, but in shops, or anywhere really…I like to chat.

  2. It is my middle name actually! ( and my mother's middle name and her father was called Francis)
