I continuously apply for jobs there that I'm under qualified for, or would mean I couldn't actually afford to live there, but I can't help it. I love it there, very much. I think that I will write a lot about Bath on this blog, just so you all know.
On my first day off work in 3 weeks (AKA last Thursday), I decided a trip to Bath was in order. I still had a spa voucher (oh, yeah) to use from Christmas and decided that 3 weeks without a day off definitely warranted a spa day.
The sun was shining, it was a beautiful day, so I went up early and decided to go and chill in Bath. I did my obligatory wander around the Southgate centre (the 'new' shopping area near the train station) before heading across to Parade Gardens. I picked up a cheap lunch and sat taking in the view of Pulteney Bridge, whilst listening to the sound of weir.
From there I wandered up and down either side of Pulteney Bridge, before heading back into town. I decided to take a wander towards Bath Abbey, there's always something going on around there. In fact, the amount of musicians and/or buskers in the city of Bath is the main reason I never wear headphones in the city. Unlike other places where I quite often want to wander around lost in my own thoughts, in Bath I very much like to be aware of my surroundings. On this day I caught a busker singing Drops of Jupiter- Train (one of my favourite songs in the world) and a duo playing dance music using only their guitars!
please excuse the crappy film quality, & just listen to what they're playing!
My next stop was Mr B's.
Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights is an independent book store with a helluva reputation (it is also the place I would most like to work in the world, and yes that is a very big hint). I love books very much and Mr B's is the perfect place to go. If you just need a new book they'll be able to talk you through the best of what they've got, or you can go upstairs and have some Bibliotherapy. There are arm chairs for you to read in, and lists of books recommended in there. I had gone in for a look, but it's like taking a chocoholic to a chocolate factory and expecting them not to taste anything, I totally bought a new book. My pick of the day was The Ballad of the Sad Café- Carson McCullers. The author fascinated me as much as the book, and I am so looking forward to reading it.
