Postcards from Bath

Hello there
I hope you had a lovely weekend

Mr Sweet and I spent ours in Bath
what a beautiful city
and the weather was glorious too
it was just

We walked for miles and miles and miles and miles .....
our achy legs are proof of that!
we didn't want to miss anything.

Can you imagine having five floors plus a basement?
that's a LOT of stairs to vacuum

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these little courtyards

The Circus

The Roman Baths

The ghostly projections were a little unnerving.

Bath Abbey

Fuel :o)

One of the things I love most about a holiday
is that it allows us time
time to talk, time to think, time to make plans
I just love that.
We have returned home feeling inspired
determined to make some little tweaks in our life
just little tiny things really
but it's those tiny things that can make all the difference.

We can't wait to go back again
but for now, its back to reality
I have a VERY busy week in my sewing room ahead.

Wishing you a wonderful week wherever you may be
and thanks for popping by
I love it that you do

Back soon

BIG love

  2. such a wonderful place!!!! One day I would love to visit Bath!!!

    xxxxx Ale

  3. I can just imagine spending Christmas in one of those vast Town houses, decorating it from top to bottom with huge christmas trees and ever so loooong swags, it would be wonderful!! xx

  4. Thank you for such lovely pictures......Bath is such a fascinating place to explore and so steeped in history. We went to the patchwork museum at Claverton Manor on our last visit......and I would love to go back again. How lovely beautiful the buildings look with the sun shining on them. So glad you had a lovely refreshing trip, Jooles.

  5. Hi Jooles what a wonderful post - have never been to Bath but it has always been on my 'must visit soon' list - it has now moved way up the list to the top after seeing your wonderful photographs which were stunning. Thank you so much for sharing them with us all. Have a great week. Hope you will be taking part in my giveaway on the 1st November
    Lots of love


  6. Glad you had such a lovely time! We haven't been to Bath for years (when we lived in the UK, we started up a tradition of going there every year for Christmas shopping and a carol concert). We must go back!

  7. So great for you that you had such a lovely time together! Very pretty pictures Jooles....:-)
    Love from Mirjam.

  8. I love Bath, and you had such lovely sunshine for your visit! I'm so glad you had a nice break! Cx

  9. So beautiful your pictures of Bath! I visited Bath when I was an 'au pair' in Southampton 45 years ago. I remember the Roman Baths and I even have an old photo of myself in front of the houses on the Circus.
    I am so glad you enjoyed it too and had such a nice break.

  10. We used to live a street away from the circus!!!!! just wonderful. So glad you had a fab time x x x

  11. Bath is so beautiful....I'm glad you had a lovely break with Mr Sweet and hope you are fully recovered now.
    Lots of love,
    Caroline xxx

  12. Ooh Jooles, looks amazing! I've never been to Bath but would like to even more now ... thanks for sharing your holiday with us.

    Love Claire xx

  13. Hi, Jooles
    Glad you had such a great time in Bath. Very beautiful town. Someday I wish I could visit it :0)
    Thanks for your comment

  14. Thanks for the virtual visit to Bath this morning. Lots of history and beautiful buildings - and great food!

  15. Hi Jooles your photo[s of bath are lovely. I too have had a similar bug to you in the last two weeks and it totally wipes you out doesn't it. Letting go of our babies is a very hard job in deed and not one that anyone ever warns you about. My number 2 son is about to go off to Afghanistan with his RAF Regiment but there are times I worry more when he's driving around in his car. May be it's that out of sight thing or me just burying my head in the sand at the prospect that might happen. Anyway I don;t think we ever stop being parents do we even when they have all flown and grown.

    Glad you are on the road to recovery.


  16. Hi Jooles - I love bath. When I was in school I used to take part in the bath music and drama festival and it was so much fun. Did you visit the costume museum (actually I don't know if its even still there as its years since I last visited Bath)? Have a good week. xxx

    1. How exciting Lily! sadly, no i didn't see that museum, sounds like it would've been amazing though.
      love jooles xxx

  17. I've never been to Bath. I'm not sure how that's possible as it looks like just my sort of place! You sound very happy and rested here - it obviously did you the world of good. xx

  18. That's a seriously charming city! Lovely photos -- thanks so much for sharing them with us...
