Tuesday 31st December 2019.
As I mentioned in the previous blog, we couldn’t take Layla into places like the Roman Baths or large shops, so today I volunteered to dog sit whilst Alison, Peter and Michelle took the bus back into Bath to enjoy what was missed yesterday. I have been to the Baths before albeit a long time ago.
I spent my time home almost alone, by finishing reading a book I’ve been enjoying, popping into the farm shop here on site and buying a dozen extra large eggs for £1.53, taking Layla for a long walk and finally booking ferry crossings to France for January.
Michelle took some photos for me for the blog and on the last day of this decade is for the first time ever, writing something for the blog!
Make the most of it folks! It’ll be another 10 years before I write again.
I’m rather glad that I did go back into town and walk around the baths. It felt rather surreal walking around somewhere the Romans had 2000 years ago. The use of the computer generated graphics and 3D models, really brought the relics to life and made it easier to imagine how the buildings,objects and people looked.
Afterwards, I enjoyed a mooch around various shops, both on my own and later with Alison. Bath city centre had a positive vibe and it was rather lovely catching glimpses of the magnificent architecture as we shopped. I would love to visit here again , perhaps in the spring when the days are longer and warmer.
Have a wonderful New Year everyone !
We saw the New Year in with Alison and Peter and wondered where we might be this time next year.
Happy New Year everyone, here’s to a happy and prosperous decade.
