Finding an acorn tucked in some wild Thyme in one of the plant containers on my balcony made me smile today. :)
Squirrels are sadly not to be found in my neighbourhood,so about the only suspect is a Jay.

Jealous...very jealous... :P
Have fun with it when you get the chance!

It's lovely around there Meer, I'm sure you'll have a great time. :D

Me and my friends from the camera club are going to Sleights near Whitby in a couple of months time for a week or so. :D

Possibly, if I can grab control of the wheel from my cousin's hands! :D

Actually, it's a ploy to do Bath on the cheap! It was so expensive to book a holiday in Bath itself that we decided to stay outside and go in ourselves. Happy happy happy! :D

Not quite smiling yet, but we all seem to be healthy again and back in our routines. I feel like I can now get out and get some things done that got pushed off last week. I even made a lunch date for tomorrow with a friend!

Meer, the Roman Baths in Bath are excellent, well worth a visit if you like museums.

Been to the baths when I was on the Orient Express last May. Nice, but water was green and I didn''t fancy a dip. Did drink the spa water though. Unfortunately I am unable to print what I uttered after swallowing it!

We want to thrash the Jane Autin museum (not physically) and follow the trail in Persuation (the Bath bit). :D

Bouncy, me loofah is hidden in a small crvice to the left of the right hand side of the facing Roman figurine looking towards the church: the one on the roof (which isn't there - the roof isn't there I mean). If found please bin it. :D
