Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Good morning friends,
Hope your holidays are going well.
It's another cold day in north west England. It's actually not that bad, mild as the locals say. These are a series of sunset pictures I quickly snapped yesterday. The Irish Sea had calmed & even though it was cooler it was most enjoyable to just witness the sunset.
I braved it & carefully climbed down from the promenade to pick up rocks. Earlier on my daily trip to the market I was surprised by much frost & ice on the ground. After slip sliding to the store I stared actually looking where I was walking...
Catch you later.
We returned to London as I had business to finish up. (We were here on December 2nd for a few days. We left for a weekend in Wiltshire and a nice week long stay in Bath.) click to read what I have posted so far...Much more to come as I sort the pictures.
I like that small funky shops are mixed in with the high- end retailers. You never know what treasure your going to find. #BreakingBad
There also cafes, pubs, clubs and markets scattered about.
There is a sign that reads "no pictures" is that a challenge or what?
We enjoyed a picnic lunch despite the cooler temps.
Happy Hoilday decor!
Its Never a easy tasks and much more difficult during the holiday season. Incredibly
two apartment mangers tried to tell me they were full, but just come over & bring cash. (Raised eyebrows at that..) and of course I didn't do. If you will not take a secure credit card payment on line, then your not going to get my business. Thankfully I
finally found a open one that didn't try to squeeze more cash out of me. After the other two I admit to being dubious about it. To my surprise it was in a fantastic, safe neighborhood and was quite spacious for a center of London studio.
I was able to cook! YESSSSSSS~
Happy holidays & talk soon!
I'm attempting to blog via the phone.. still waiting on computer parts. 😰
Please enjoy some Holiday pictures; as I shut up about the laptop already..
They were just beginning to put up the holiday decorations up in our little village (in the south of France) when we had to leave. (Sobs some more. Why? Why leave?? IDK sobs)
i don't know if they were delayed due the flooding or if they just don't start as early as other places. It was misty raining when I took these photos.....
Am giving up for now. Pictures not loading & text is bogging down. #fml
Cross fingers computer parts arrive (and is correct) Thursday or by Feb? WTF?!
I have 1,000s of picts & many stories..
And want to share all the pretty decorations we have seen in the UK!
Happy Holidays were ever you are.
Catch you later-
We spent a fun weekend exploring Wiltshire (England) earlier in Dec
"Wiltshire is a county in South West England with an area of 3,485 km2 (1,346 square miles). It is landlocked and borders the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshireand Berkshire. Until 1930 the county town was Wilton but Wiltshire Council is now based at Trowbridge.
Wiltshire is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys. Salisbury Plain is famous as the location of the Stonehenge and Avebury stone circles and other ancient landmarks and as a training area for the British Army. The city of Salisbury is notable for its mediaeval cathedral. Important country houses open to the public include Longleat, near Warminster, and the National Trust's Stourhead, near Mere." --WIKI
I left the links active if you want to read more about them.
Read part 1 here
This trip was more about just relaxing and exploring off the beaten path.
"The history of Wilton dates back to the Anglo-Saxons in the 8th century AD, and by the late 9th century it was the capital of Wiltunscire, a shire (or 'share') of the Kingdom of Wessex. It remained the administrative centre of Wiltshire until the 11th century. Wilton was of significant importance to the church, with the founding of Wilton Abbey in AD 771 and a number of other establishments. In AD 871 Alfred the Great fought and lost an important battle there against the Danish armies, leaving him in retreat for several years.
Despite further attacks, Wilton remained a prosperous town, as recorded in the Domesday book. The building of Salisbury Cathedral nearby, however, caused Wilton's decline, as the new site of Salisbury, with a new bridge over the River Avon, provided a convenient bypass around Wilton on the trade routes.
Wilton Abbey was surrendered to Henry VIII in 1539 during the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and in 1541 much of the estate was granted to the Earl of Pembroke, upon which Wilton House was built" - wiki
I still have to write about Salisbury yet...so there will be a part 3.

Hello out there!
How are things going? I hope all is well with you and yours. We are headed back to London shortly. We are in Bath (England) now and have been for a week. It's one of my favorite towns in England. I have posted about it here already. I try to visit every couple of years.
So So Much is going on...
I just hate drama! So I will skip the details and just say I've been happier.
But Bath is still very cool--
The other day-
I have picts* just posting is a problem-
Anyway, please to enjoy a few pictures?
And here are a few more pictures to make up for me being MIA.
Thanks for stopping by, I know I've have't posted much lately...blogging from the cell is just about pointless. I write, edit and upload, for HOURS and nothing happens!
I hope to be back to "normal" whatever that is - soon and have all the computer glitches straighten out.
