Memory Lane

I had a wonderful trip down memory lane last week re - living my days at college in Bath. I studied for a B.ed in Fashion and Textiles at the then named Bath College of Higher Education based at Sion Hill in Bath. Going back brought back so many things. I really enjoyed the course and the chance to be creative in so many different ways. Just walking the streets of Bath again made my creative juices begin to stir again. It is such a beautiful City and the weather last weekend was glorious, showing Bath off at its best!

Somerset Place.... this is where may lectures were held... amazing views from here over the city

2 Portland Place... this was home for 3 years. In the first year my room was right at the very top of this house - can you see the very small window at the top on the left hand side? ....  that was my room, wonky floorboards and all!

Me outside No.2

This is the post box where many many letters were sent home to family and friends... letters were what kept me going. Isn't it a shame that we don't send so many 'proper' letters anymore? I love it when the post plops on the mat and there is a letter or card from a friend, it really brightens my day.. 

My walk home 

Pultney bridge and the weir... many walks were taken down here

Of course, a trip to Bath isn't complete without a visit to sample a 'Sally Lunn' bun... with cream and jam of course!

..... and Bijoux beads...  

And finally, when the sun was setting two hot air balloons took off from Victoria Park.. a perfect end to a perfect day!
