Bath plus

Did you miss me last week? Well, don’t worry, not only will I be telling you about my trip to Bath but also what I was up to the previous weekend.

Before I can tell you about all of that, I have to tell you that the mean Karen made me go to work. Not only did I have to get up in the dark but I had to travel on the train too. It was really quite exhausting so I really very much deserved that cup of tea (even if it was big enough for me to swim in!).

Fortunately Karen was a bit nicer at the weekend and I was able to get some fresh air. There was even some sunshine which was rather glorious. Glad I’m made of wool though as it was rather chilly.

We then popped along to the hairdressers and I thought about getting my nails done but remembered that I don’t have any nails to do. I did get given another cup of tea though.

Sunday was another relaxing day with a walk along the front followed by a hot chocolate and some reading in a local cafe. Whilst walking, we were lucky enough to see a tall ship although you probably can’t see it in the photo.

So then came another Monday and no work but a trip to Bath instead for a few days holiday. Not sure if this means you work one week and then get the next week off? It was a couple of train journeys away so needed a cup of tea when I arrived which was accompanied with a couple of locally made biscuits.

There was also a complimentary box of chocolates which were demolished and then I had a rest after that on the rather large (for me) bed.

The first day was really rather wet so didn’t get out too much, although had a nice autumnal moment in the park followed by some hot chocolate (yes, another one).

Fortunately Wednesday was a bit drier so able to get out a bit more. Saw the famous abbey and Roman Baths, both of which were very impressive. I even found my own monkey sized bath just for me.

I then had a wander along by the river which was quite fast running after all that rain, so I wasn’t allowed too close.

On Thursday I was allowed to play in the hotel gardens for a bit after breakfast and even got a ride on a horse.

The day was then spent doing lots of shopping and getting Christmas presents, so not too many pictures as I had to stay safe in Karen’s bag due to all the people and I’m also not allowed to spoil any surprises. I was, however, allowed out for a famous bath bun and yet more hot chocolate.

After all that effort and walking over the last few days, I was just ready to collapse so Karen thought it would be a nice for me to relax in the hotel spa and jacuzzi.

I travelled home on the Friday and managed to get some sun on the way which was pleasant. Karen also treated me to a picture of home which I enjoyed.
