This week has been my birthday week and I decided to take a week off from teaching for the first time since April so it has been a lovely week so far.
A birthday book haul post will be appearing soon.
This week we went to some English Heritage places and thankfully the weather was wonderful. I also got some good Pokemon Go playing in as well.
Obviously there were some birthday celebrations that involved a little treat which is my all time favourite drink.
Hot Chocolate and Reading
For my birthday I had a Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser and so this has meant some amazing hot chocolates to curl up and read with. So far we have tried salted caramel and hazelnut praline.
Another present I had was a crochet pattern and the wool and hook to go with it which my sister gave me. I haven’t done any crochet since I was at uni so this has been a shock to the system. The wool is beautifully soft to work with which is an added bonus. The pattern is for a cowl but at the moment it looks like a beret so this might need to be looked at again, it was all going so well!
I have still been studying this week as well but it has been nice to have a break from teaching.
We celebrated New Year in Bath again, so I thought I would share some of my photos.
The Assembly Rooms
The Pump Rooms Restaurant
The Herschel Museum of Astronomy
Sally Lunn’s Bunn Shop
No. 1 The Crescent Museum
I obviously also visited a bookshop whilst in Bath, but more on that in a future post.
Yesterday I went on the Severn Valley Railway Steam in Lights train and it was brilliant. Who knew a steam train covered in lights could be so much fun?
So this week I have gone for a Christmas inspired quote.
“Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection.”
Here are a few pictures of yesterdays adventures.
So on Saturday I celebrated my friend’s 30th in style! Yes, we went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. Now I will be honest I have been quite a few times but I have not seen the Forbidden Forest or Gringotts bank so I was very pleased to visit and see the new scenes.
I will be honest I am terrified of spiders so the Forbidden Forest was a bit of trial for me but I absolutely loved Gringotts bank and it is possibly my second favourite part because of course the ultimate favourite is the castle at the end which is always rather emotional to behold.
What is everyone’s favourite part of the tour?
Here are a few photos from the day!
