Yep, it's one of those days here where you just can't see the world beyond the white.
Curled up with laptop, typey-scribbling. The writing is going well, despite me wandering off on a tangent of old crime.
You can now read online the trial records of the Old Bailey 1674-1834. You can search the cases by crime (e.g. seducing from allegiance; keeping a brothel; assault with sodomitical intent), verdict & punishment (death: drawn and quartered; branding; pillory). Some of them are fascinating, like this one: lady suspects maid of theft, straps her to bedpost and tortures her to death. The jury issues a death sentence, lady reveals that she's pregnant, sentence is respited. It makes Moll Flanders seem tame.
Time to put on another pot of coffee. Have a good weekend :)
