Have a wonderful day, my dear, and a most happy and inspired year to follow!

Here's a bit of a Traveling Divorcée for your birthday and hopefully she is to your liking, even when not exactly a Spinster: Anne Blunt, daughter of Ada Lovelace.

I do believe she's not entirely unknown to you (could a Traveling Lady possibly be?! *gg*)

(In my case, when I was about 15, I became inescapably aware of 'Lady Anne Blunt' through my love for Arabian horses, she being an icon - if not THE icon - of Arabian breeding and knowledge about the breed in its native surroundings. More than 90% of todays population of Arabian horses is descending from the horses she bought and bred, which is a staggering figure, I think. I don't know much else about her, apart from deducting she wouldn't have been the easiest of women, so I hope you do not somehow 'dislike' her for holding nasty political views, or anything like that...)

An of course, on your birthday: have a piece of pie and a Tetley (I'll raise one to you too)

Oh wow, thank you! I have actually never heard of her! Must read up. (I also tend to be more interested in understanding historical persons' political views than in judging them for it, so I'll be interested to read up on what she thought as well.)
