MOTHER & DAUGHTER TIME
Today Miss P and I had to attend a court hearing in Bath. Some of you may recall that Miss P was involved in a car accident in April 2009. After the court hearing we walked back to the town centre to have lunch at Cafe Rouge as we were both feeling very hungry.
By the time lunch was over, there was no point taking Miss P back to school. I decided to take this opportunity to have a little Mother and Daughter quality time together.
We had a good system, we took it in turns, one shop that I liked, one shop that Miss P liked.
You can guess who chose to go here, "The Bath Sweet Shop". It is the oldest sweet shop in Bath
Miss P made it known that some of my choices were VERY BORING....until I took her to this book shop called ROOKE BOOKS. It is almost opposite Neal's Yard.
We were given a very warm welcome by Isha, seen here sitting behind the lovely ornate piece of furniture. (Sorry Isha, I moved when I took the photo...)She kindly looked after our shopping bags whilst Miss P & I enjoyed looked around the book shop.
I love the layout and the decor, it really is a book shop with a difference.
The first time that I visited this book shop was about a month ago when Alan took me there saying he thought I'd find it interesting. What I wasn't expecting then and Miss P wasn't expecting today is to find one of these on the first floor....
Or even better, these on the top floor!
Miss P thought these were so COOL and yes, you've guessed it... "Can we have one these in my bedroom pleeease? I had a sit down too...soooo comfy! Miss P declared that this was a great book shop and I have to agree with her!
On our way back towards the car park I stopped at PAXTON & WHITFIELD in search of some hard goat's cheese for Alan.
The selection of cheeses is fantastic! A cheese lover's paradise...
You may like to know that they offer an online mail order service ;-)
I felt like buying a huge Camembert just for the box!
After trying out sampling some cheeses, I left the shop with two different goat's cheeses. I hope that Alan will like them, I certainly did!
Time to head back to the car park.
I never tire of visiting Bath, it has to be one of my favourite cities in the UK.
I wish you all a really good weekend
P.S: Thank you for you for all your comments and ideas re: Trampoline on previous post.
