Ann's will is freely downloadable from the National Archives, but it's quite hard to read so I have transcribed it. And anyway, I had nothing else to do that afternoon. Link to PDF:

3 Nov. 1831: Anne has a spontaneous near-orgasm in the street: "in returning just near home thinking of Miss H so as to excite me, and stood ten minutes in the road with my hand touching me but not enough to incur a cross".

Veterinary care for Caradoc detailed. Mariana makes Anne feel ashamed of her posture and Anne resolves to improve it. ‘Stood singing over all my old songs before I could make up my mind to get into bed.’ #1824

Can you imagine how privileged I felt being able to watch this iconic scene being filmed? I still get goosebumps watching it. Magical women. Magical scene. Magical.

Home from the Lake District, Anne dashes upstairs to read letters from Miss Vallance and Miss Maclean (‘she likes me perhaps more than she is herself quite aware’) and…a kippered salmon has arrived from Tib. #1824

2 Nov. 1831: Anne writes: "...'tis well perhaps that I should say of Miss H and my own heart: she found it warm and open as a summer's day; she left it closed in wintry mists and cold as they". 1/2

I can't tell whether I'm crushing on Anne Lister or Suranne Jones playing Anne Lister.

Anne has some nice boiled milk and lots of rhubarb tart and then, like all road-trippers with convertibles, she and Aunt Anne enjoy the Lake District by putting the top down on the carriage. #1824

A diary of Ann Walker being discovered days before filming due to start on series 2, covering the same time period, just smacks of Ann from beyond the veil saying "Now just hang on a bloody minute!" 😆

I do enjoy these Copenhagen transcriptions. Everyone wanting Anne's singular attention. Lady Harriet de Hagemann nee Hobart painted by her daughter Albinia circa 1845.

June 1827: and the Barlows arrive at Colmar where they stay for 3 hours. They take in some sights and have dinner at the Trois Rois. Digging around in the French archives, I was delighted to find that the building still stood and even recognised with a plaque.

It's the end of October 1831. At St Leonards, just outside Hastings, & have decided on 15 Pelham Cres. "How social & comfortable!"
