Friday figments and photos

What a week (I say that every week don't I?).

Kelly and I took a Jane Austin inspired turn or two around the cobbled streets of Bath this weekend, spring has most definitely sprung in my neglected lawn, a few of us celebrated Holi blogger-style,  normality vainly attempted to re-balance my life (sans-blogging everyday) and we sadly mourned the passing of the great Sir Terry Pratchett.

These overalls and shoes started off white and black respectively...then Holi happened.

I forgot that I'm not the only book addict in the house... she seriously cannot leave them alone.

Sometimes “THERE IS NO MORE TIME, EVEN FOR CAKE. FOR YOU, THE CAKE IS OVER. YOU HAVE REACHED THE END OF CAKE."

RIP Sir Terry.


I have a weekend planned of chores, relaxing, exploring London, catching up with a friend and discovering a few ancient houses. How about you?

Ps. a friend who'll meet you at the train station of a Friday evening armed with wine and Salted Caramel Haagen-Daas for no reason other than celebrating Friday is a mucho keeper...

  1. We were in Bath at the same time! I visited Bath for the very first time this past weekend. :) Who knows, maybe we saw each other without knowing it.

    Glad you had fun in Somerset!

  4. The death of Terry Pratchett was very sad ... but at the same time, he's been suffering for quite a long while now, and I'd like to think that he is finally at peace.

    On an entirely different, fun, note, I saw Jess's photos from the Holi celebrations and it looked like SO MUCH FUN. But I'd just be too worried about not being able to breathe from the powder and also getting it in my eyes! I know, I'm such a spoilsport. Or as I like to say ... a party pooper.

  5. Looks like a pretty awesome way to spend a weekend (beside the mourning, of course.) Picture #4 is so lovely, the light is beautiful and just gives me this calm and relaxing feeling. And I can't believe how fast spring is approaching. :)

  8. Bless him, he was an incredible man & talent, not to mention his footnoting skill!

  9. He is incredible - the social commentary underlying many of his novels is quite honestly mindblowing.

  10. I certainly hope so - he broke my heart with his documentary.
    It was utterly insane - we didn't get any dust in our eyes, but ended up breathing quite a lot in - thankfully we celebrated with a cocktail and nibbles afterwards! I'd definitely recommend it! Maybe we should get Becca out!

  12. It's such a lovely break, and add visiting the Spa into the equation = heaven!
