Bath with Becky Bedbug

On Saturday I hopped on a train to have a catch up with Becky, and our city of choice this time round was Bath (we're thinking Oxford next!). I've never been when it's not pack with Christmas markets so it was lovely to actually be able to explore the city without getting mowed down by the crowd!

Here's a few snippets.

There are a LOT of tourists, but Becky coped well with the attention...

I didn't realise selfie sticks were actually used seriously - this was the first we saw of MANY.
 Starbucks have gone all out this year for Valentines day - they've even replaced the boxes with hearts. As this is my first Valentines single since I was 16, I'm not so overjoyed about this (it is quite cute though!)

Cream tea by the abbey.

We can't take serious selfies.

Mini dogs are everywhere. I want this one please.

Actually, I can't take a serious photo full stop without cracking up.


Making fudge!

Ben's Cookies is one of my favourite places ever. If there's one in the city, you can be guaranteed I'll go out of my way to find it.

Just before I burst into giggles.

Bath really is quite beautiful!

We had a really lovely day catching up in a beautiful city - if you ever get the chance to go, I'd really recommend it!

Life lately...February 2015

So my idea of keeping up to date on my blog didn't really work - January was exhausting in every way, and I just didn't have the time.

I've learnt quite a lot in January, some good, some not so good. 
  • I enjoy my job immensely, but our 'busy season' actually is genuinely busy. I've spent three weeks so far in hotels in cities miles away from home, working 14+ hour days and eating out every night. I never thought I'd miss my own bed and cooking, but after a while it really takes it out of you. (However, it has been really good as I've got some really fun colleagues - pretty much just 3 weeks of school trips in really nice hotels if you ignore the work part).

  • I've learnt that my friends are actually pretty amazing - some I've known for a few months, and some I've known for more than decade - I've spent so much time catching up with everyone this month that I've barely had time to sit down with a cup of tea and watch TV. I was very much wrapped up in my own little world for the last five years and coming out the other side of that it's nice to know that I've got people I can just drop in on for cup of tea last minute, text at 10.30 and be in a club for 11 and enlist to paint my flat on a whim on a Saturday. Apparently there's a whole series of Broadchurch that I've missed though whilst I've been busy.
