Time Out ....

..... in Bath.

To celebrate being best friends forever (or BFF as my goddaughter would say), Catherine and I escaped from our families and spent a wonderful weekend in Bath. We managed to find a great place to stay,
the Astor Guest House
which was only few minutes walk from the city centre (or a long drive when the sat nav let us down!).

We had a great time, we did a bit of sightseeing (planned which house in Royal Crescent we will be moving in to!), a lot of shopping and far too much eating and drinking. I love Bath, it really is a beautiful city and I would dearly love to live there. But, for now, I'll have to settle for the occasional visit.

Back at home, we're trying to grow more this year. Our garden is rather small so we don't have room for a "proper vegetable plot so normally we just manage a couple of tomato plants or some peas .... but so far this year we've planted:
  • potatoes (in our old dustbin and also in five huge pots)
  • cucumbers
  • a mix of salad leaves
  • rocket
  • peas
  • chillis
  • tomatoes
  • spring onions
  • coriander
  • bay
  • sweet bay
  • lemon thyme
  • lemon grass
  • and loads more chillis
Fingers crossed that it all grows and that the birds don't pinch too much - they are my prime suspects in the case of the scotch bonnet thefts!

Your blogs are fabulous, I have really enjoyed reading them. I only started the other day and am still not really sure what to write. Hopefully, I'll get the hang of it in time. Love the knees by the way on the other one! lol
