Apologies/Bath

Apologies for disappearing for over a week, unannounced. Uni work got a little mad, combined with my few days of illness and trip to Bath, I had a fair bit of catching up to do. So I decided to take a break from the blog to focus on my work.

However, now that I've finished my modules for this semester, I am beginning to feel rather festive! Tonight I'm going to bake some festive cupcakes and maybe put up my little tree in my room. I had a lovely time in Bath too, despite the horrible wet weather. The christmas market was lovely, there were carol singers, mulled wine and lots of pretty christmas lights.

We stayed in an amazing Georgian house. It was a huge school house, converted into 3 holiday homes. I loved the steps and the windows. Oh how I love Georgian architecture.

The Christmas market had the most beautiful backdrop of the Roman baths and Bath abbey. The whole city is the perfect backdrop to a short christmas break. There are so many fantastic independent shops, but my two favourite shops in the whole of Bath are Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights and Gillards Tea & Coffee. I can't go to Bath without visiting either. I love supporting independent shops. Visiting Mr B's feels so much more personal and heartwarming than visiting a branch of Waterstones.

  6. i love the photos! it's great to support your independent shops, they're so important in stopping everything becoming commercialised and same-y.

    don't fret about leaving the blog for a while if work gets busy: we all have our busy times!
