Winter Wonderland

    Last Sunday I spent the day in London with a handful of bloggers, is there a proper word for a gathering of bloggers?  Anyway, I met Katie (hook,line and sink her) at Victoria and we then met Ria (wishing-for-chanel) Erin (e-elise etc & Michelle (daisybutter) at Hyde park and strolled on into Winter Wonderland.

Bath in pictures

              [taken with an olympus e520 or a sony point and shoot thingy] Bath was pretty, and a bit damp. I got back over two weeks ago, and am only just getting round to posting these.

In which I visit Nymans Gardens

Sunday before last was a day of beauty; Sunny weather, a picnic in the lovely gardens of a (partly in ruins) stately home, then an afternoon of watching my fiancé hurtle around an American football pitch attempting to practically kill his opponents whilst they attempt to practically kill him. Whilst the boys got their practise on at the pitch, Karina…
