Breaking myself back in gently to being back home. I was hoping that I had a rant or two for you but I am afraid not! Even the sun has been shining since I returned. I have tried to busy myself with answering the mountain of email that awaited me....I'll get there. I had a wander and took some pictures today....just to finish of the film in the cameras. The nicest thing though was to have a normal breakfast...toast and Marmite....YUMMY! Well it is if you like you daily intake of salt to be powerful.
Whilst I was away I forgot....rather conveniently that lent had started. I'm not religious but I usually give up Gin, Coffee and Bread for lent just to prove to myself that I can. Of course I have been consuming all in vast quantities whilst I have been away....so do I enter lent late or just leave it...not sure, I am pondering as we speak.

Todays shot is taken in The Royal Crescent, Bath. Much photographed and usually very beautifully.....mine probably won't sit up there but I kinda like how it came out. The Royal Crescent was built between 1767 and 1775 to the design of John Wood the Younger, and forms a semi-ellipse of thirty Grade I listed houses arranged around a great Lawn. Now I could provide you with a stack of historical stuff about this wonderful place but if it's history that you crave then here is some interesting stuff about The Royal Crescent. As for its location well it's in Bath but a map is always useful!
