"She’s so tiny," he laughed, his light blue eyes glassy. "But as beautiful as her mother. I am still so in awe of her…and you."
He felt her step near, her warmth pressing close as she wrapped them in her arms.
He looked up from their daughter, his face intent.  “But we will protect her, together we will keep her safe and ensure she knows she is loved.”
She smiled at him, a gentle, tender smile share between lovers. “We will, my good knight.  We will.”

For scarletcourt a.k.a kennashbickering I hope you recover soon my dear!!!!

Thank you so much! I can’t stop grinning!

A/N: My contribution to STEAMM.

Gathering at Downton

After the previous years’ picnics on the grounds prior to the annual cricket match, the Crawley sisters had to content themselves with an indoor one when the skies opened up that morning and would not relent. Robert was dismayed at the thought of a rain out for his beloved annual event lamented at the breakfast table.

"I just checked my phone this morning," said Sybil, who had arrived with Tom and their children the previous evening. "The weather forecast was calling for only a ten percent chance of rain tomorrow."

"I guess we’ll just have to hope for the best," said Robert with a sigh before taking a sip of his tea. 

"I’d play in a rainstorm so long as there wasn’t any lightning," said Matthew, who was an enthusiast of cricket. 

"You would," said Tom to his tea, who would rather be anywhere else.

"Where’s Mary?" asked Sybil. Her elder sister normally joined the them at breakfast when they visited Downton.

I don’t want to own anything until I can find a place where me and things go together.  I’m not sure where that is, but I know what it’s like.  It’s like Tiffany’s.

Wow

piperholmes:

Really heartbroken for Jessica Brown Findlay. What an invasion of privacy. Really disgusted with those posting/reblogging her private life. I can’t imagine such violation.

Sincerely hope they find whomever did this to her and the other women, and that those who are responsible are prosecuted. I don’t care how “famous” a person is, her private property is just that: private.

ICA with you. Famous or not, no one’s privacy should be invaded like that. What is wrong with people! I hope that those parties responsible will be prosecuted to the extent of the law.

"You want me to give up the man I love for a system I don’t believe in. Where’s the sense in that?"

Got a new car a couple of days ago, but today was the first time I had a chance to take a picture to share. It’s a new 2014 Mazda 3 and the colour is called Titanium Flash (which depending on the lighting can be a rich brown or a pewter). With all the stuff in new cars (bluetooth, nav, etc.), it will probably take me a few months to customize it exactly the way I want. Still miss my old car though. Had it for nearly 10 years. This one will take some getting used to.

Kennash in ‘No Exit’ (1x18)

Monday, August 18, 2014
This chapter is dedicated to the amazing PiperHolmes! Happy Birthday, my friend!

How Lord Grantham was Won Over
"Is the parlour swept?" asked Sybil, from the kitchen where she was making biscuits and cucumber sandwiches. "Mama and Papa will be arriving in the next half hour."
Tom, meanwhile, was frantically rushing around while Nora napped to make the cottage presentable to Sybil’s parents who had been invited to tea that afternoon. “That’s next, once I plump the pillows for the sofa.” It wasn’t that they didn’t keep the cottage clean and livable. It just wasn’t sufficient for the likes of visitors.
In the days that followed the cricket game, Sybil, Tom and Nora had settled into a happy routine at the cottage, with Sybil looking after their home and Nora, while Tom had worked with Matthew on modernizing the estate. Each evening when he had returned home from work, Tom had marveled at what Sybil had accomplished during the day. One day it had been new curtains for the kitchen. Another had been cutting the lawn with their push mower.

Tom Branson and his girls

"So," Lord Grantham began awkwardly, as he did most conversations with his Irish son-in-law. "Another baby?"
Tom couldn’t help the pink of his cheeks, not sure he’d ever get used to such intimate conversations with his former employer.
"So it appears," he answered, accepting the tumbler the Earl handed him.
"And your…" Robert hesitated, swirling the amber liquid around in his own cup. "income is sufficient to support a third child?"
Tom pressed his lips tightly, forcing his breathing to stay steady, forcing the insult into the part of his mind that stored every snide remark or condescension the Crawleys bestowed on him and his wife.  Time and fatherhood had taught him many lessons, patience and forgiveness foremost among them.
"We have sufficient for our needs," he said simply.
His father-in-law nodded before taking a sip of his drink, knowing that was all the answer he was going to get.
"Another girl do you think?" Robert asked.
Tom smirked, surprised by how funny he found the idea of him having three daughters with one of the Earl of Grantham’s three daughters.  He knew Robert and Cora had wanted a boy, and knew what a disappointment it must have been for Sybil to have been a girl; though he couldn’t claim to ever find it a disappointment.
"I can only hope so," Tom said, his smile genuine.
For scarletcourt  I hope your recuperation continues to go well and you are back to feel better in no time! 

Love this! This is perfect!
