Warning: a-post-filled-with-a-lot-of-pictures.

Thank you all for your lovely questions!


Miss Woodhouse asked.....

Do you have a best friend? If so, how did you two meet?

Oh yes, I have. The best friend I could ever imagine. She is adorable, lovely and she can draw so good you can't believe she drawn that. :) You always can count on her, when you are sad, or you have problem. SHE IS AN AMAZING FRIEND. And I am glad she is in my life. How we met, let me think. The funniest thing is that we were both very young when  we met. Okay, here it comes...we met on a playground....*it's out*.....It is really strange, but we met on a big playground. My mom was talking to her mom and I saw her brothers running around, I only saw a glimp of her. And the next morning, my mom told us that we went to visit their family. The first meeting was akward, but eventually we became close. :) And now we are best friends. 
If you could have been cast in Downton Abbey, who would you have wanted to act and why?

Lady Rose. Just because she is my favorite and we look quite a lot like each other.

Poldark ~ Season 2 ~ Review

Now this season is more compelling than season 1. There is a lot of trouble, but there is also happiness.

Season 2 begins with some flasbacks from season 1, Ross is taken by soldiers and Demelza stands alone on the cliff. Some of you, who watched Poldark, may remember that.

Ross is taken to prison because he is guilty at a robbery at the beach an other night. Of course he is not guilty, we all know, but George, the mean villain, wants him dead and accuses him of being guilty of the robbery. Ross is always trying to fight against George, he mostly wins, but in this case, it really looks bad for him. 

Now we have Demelza, who really wants Ross to stay alive, because she would be lost without him. She fights alongside Ross to help him get out of jail, and to not be hanged. 

Elizabeth also really tries to help Ross, which was quite annoying. But what I liked about her, that she and Francis really getting close to each other.
 
Now, let us take a look at the characters.

Ross changed a lot in this season. In season 1 he didn't appreciate Demelza as much as he should have done, but now he is necleting her, he's not informing her about his business, doesn't really pay attention what she does for him and their son Jeremy. I did like him in season 1, but my mind is changed now. He must deal with George, which is very hard, but he just wouldn't let Demelza help him.Ross isn't loyal to Demelza either.
Demelza is still the same. She really suffers from her husbands mistakes. Ross isn't aware of her pain he causes her. And in this season she is suffering with another news, a news she is afraid to tell Ross. But eventually she tells him and he is happy with it. There is always trouble on their way. 
One of the troubles is that their is one woman who just can't leave Ross and Demelza alone. 


And yes, I am speaking about Elizabeth. I began to like her, because she changed, Francis and her relationship becomes more seriously, but I might have it wrong. That is because Ross is always visiting her and can't leave her alone. She says she doesn't love him anymore, but in her heart she still loves him. Elizabeth, why can't you just leave Ross and Demelza alone? Live your life, and let them life their lives. 

Francis is a man who changed a lot. I didn't liked him in season 1, but I do in season 2. He begins to give his family attention and helps with the land. He confronts George, finally saying what he wanted to say, he begins to love Elizabeth more and their son and becomes partners with Ross. He helps a lot in the mine. And then the awful accident happens, which made me cry. 
There is a new character in season 2. Caroline Penvenen, a very wealthy girl who stays the summer by her uncle. She and Dwight Enys fall in love and eventually want to marry with each other. Like my brother would say, very predictable. But, a lot of things go wrong. Which is obviously. I guess they will be married in season 3. Dwight goes to the navy, leaving his fiance Caroline behind.

Dwight didn't changed. He is still a friend of Ross and a doctor who helps the poor. Which Caroline dissaproves first, but eventually she can live with that. 
George Warleggan is still annoying, planning to ruin Ross his live forever. Hates it when he fails, laughs when he succeed. I don't like him, but he makes a pretty good villain. He eventually gets everything what he wants, he only have to do a lot of effort to succeed these things. 

And then we have got Jud and Prudie, still the same, they make you laugh. We have got Jeremy, the son of Ross and Demelza, Geoffrey Charles, son of Francis and Elizabeth, Blamey and Verity, aunt Agatha and captain Henshaw and the investors. 

There is one scene which isn't really appropraite for children. We just closed our eyes when it came up. 
George doing his stupid fighting lessons.
