12 More Signs You’re Ready for Season 3 of Downton Abbey

by Lian on January 5, 2013

Last year’s post  was such a hit– 11 Signs You’re Ready for Season 2 of Downton Abbey –  that I decided to kill some time between now and the the Season Premiere of Season 3 of Downton Abbey  on Sunday night and share some more signs of readiness.



You’ve turned your living room into an infirmary and are graciously accepting patients from this year’s flu epidemic.

You’ve written to the War Office on behalf of your housekeeper’s cousin’s son’s brother.

You watch the mail for your invitation to Matthew and Mary’s wedding.

You’ve adopted a yellow lab for the premiere party.

You’ve started walking with a Bastesian limp and wearing a prison jumpsuit.

You volunteered to plow your neighbor’s field with your car.

You’ve sent Sybil a wedding gift, but wonder of she’s gotten it because she’s sent no thank you note.

You’ve started to refer to your doorbell as “the Carson” and your dishwasher as “Daisy.”

You frequently tell your spouse, “You should never listen to anything I say.”

You’ve cut off all contact with your British friends because you don’t want them to spoil the whole season for you. You’re very sorry, but you simple can’t.

You sit for hours at your vanity waiting for Anna to come braid your hair.

You’re as suspicious of Shirley MacClaine’s arrival at Downton as Lady Grantham.


What signs are you showing?

Embracing my Chaos, Lian

I can not wait

I am going to hire someone to clean the crumbs from under the table instead of letting the dog lick them up. I introduced Downton Abbey to our 17 year old daughter at the end of season 2. She went online and started from the beginning and announced to me in a hateful British accent that we would have to wait until next year for season 3. The bug bit her too. Thank goodness it’s here! I deliver the mail and I got to see hundreds of copies of hopefully the new married couple Lady Mary and Matthew on the front cover of Entertainment Weekly. They look so beautiful together. I never noticed how striking his eyes stare into the camera.

I have set my DVR to record the new season. What my family doesn’t know is that I changed the “priority” settings on the DVR so Downton will record no matter what else is set to record. Had to get the priorities straight…Right?

I can’t wait!

Love this one- You sit for hours at your vanity waiting for Anna to come braid your hair.

I am ridiculously excited about the new season of Downton I’ve taken to calling my living room the “drawing room”. I haven’t been able to get my 16yo son to dress up like a footman and serve me tea, though.

My 9yo daughter is very excited as well. I don’t let her watch all of the episodes (I DVR and preview them first to make sure they are appropriate). It’s actually been the impetus for quite a few conversations about how different things are for women now than in the past, how many more options we have. Although she sometimes thinks spending your days changing into different outfits for different activities and having someone to do your hair all the time doesn’t sound all bad, either.
