“There is something to me very softening in the presence of a woman – some strange influence, even if one is not in love with them, – which I cannot at all account for, having no very high opinion of the sex.
But yet; I always feel in better humour with myself and every thing else, if there is a woman within ken.”
Now, I’m CERTAINLY in a better humour with myself NOW that the website for the Ghost of Piccadilly Terrace is FINALLY finished!
Time for tea and cake me thinks!
