There is much to be said for a slow stroll through a beautiful city, some retail inspiration and lunch with a friend. I’m sorry you couldn’t all come but sometimes just two is all there is room for.
There are many advantages to living in the South West one being the proximity to both the City of Bath and Chris (Thinly Spread). Bath falls neatly between where I am and where Chris is. We like to treat ourselves to a trip to the city, every now and then and frankly, the world needs us to put things to right. We really ought to be sponsored by some kind of think tank.
Our day goes, mostly, like this; a book shop rendezvous, closely followed with a critical catch up and brunch in one of Bath’s fabulous cafes. This last week, the Bloomsbury cafe, which sits upstairs from a lovely shop full of everything you never realised that you wanted.
Then a stroll around the city, away from the busy tourist clogged parts, up the hill behind the terraces, for a different angle on Bath. I like to wonder who lives behind the windows of the grand terraces, is it a series of houses or apartments? I would love a room with a balcony.
In town, we visited the new Anthropologie store . I’d browsed on-line but not had the ‘experience’. I think we both have a new love in Bath.
Our lunch choice was Acorn it is a vegetarian kitchen, which suits our non-carnivore souls. The food proved to be creative, fresh and absolutely delicious.
There you are; three good things in Bath: Bloomsbury. Anthropologie. Acron. Sorry but I’m not sharing ‘meeting with Chris’.
