Hi Madeleine - what a lovely, romantic suprise for you :-) Great to find all those bookshops (and best place to be on a day like today!) Re your shoes, I heard a bizarre thing once about some super-expensive, all-weather hiking boots, for which people were seeking refunds in their droves due to them letting water in. Seems the manufacturers got away with saying they were not guaranteed to be waterproof (God forbid!) merely 'water repellant.' So well done on your refund!
Absolutely Karla That's exactly what this store tried to fob us off with, too. Apparently it's a legal loop hole.
How lovely! My father-in-law was born in Bath. Someday I will hop the pond and go for a visit with him. Glad to see you back!
How lovely, Madeleine. That is a really romantic break and a gorgeous trip down Memory Lane. I love Bath and took one of my daughters to the fashion museum there last year. I always drive through Bathampton when I visit my mother in Dorset and think how lovely the George looks, but have yet to go inside it!
Your hubby is really sweet. What a wonderful surprise.
Oh, I really wanted to visit Bath when I was in the Cotswolds but just ran out of time. Next time. So glad you got to go back and enjoy it all again with the hubs. :)
How lovely, I haven't been to Bath for several years but it it a great place to go. I visited Sally Lunn's for tea and cake!
Amazing Madeleine!! Is that handsome beloved?!?! Awwww he's lovely!! Yay! How utterly romantic! I'm so sorry the old bookshop wasn't there - but this new one looks FAB!!!Well done you for getting the refund for the shoes!! Take carex
Oh, that sounds like a splendid weekend. I love the photos. I read a lot of British lit, so it's great to see what Bath actually looks like. It's mentioned in several novels.
Sounds like you had a good weekend, overall! :)
How nice to be whisked away to a place where memories were made.
It sounds like a romantically fun weekend!
My mom went to Bath and said it was beautiful. How lovely to be whisked away for a romantic weekend.
Sounds like a wonderful experience! Very cool!Madeleine Begun Kane
How romantic! Lovely to walk down memory lane. Congrats!
We don't have any quaint bookshops around here like that. :(
Your hubby is so sweet. Bless him. Such a shame about the bookshop but how wonderful to visit the place you first met.
What a wonderful, romantic surprise!
Romantic weekends are nice. I wish we could do that sometimes.In the last city I lived before now, there was a beautiful old bookstore right downtown. Dark brown wood. Large glass windows in front. The smell of old books. I loved it. There isn't one like that in this city, but I don't buy as many books as I used to either.
Hi Madeleine .. how wonderful - and it sounds a glorious weekend .. despite the rain and wet shoes - glad they refunded them.Bookshops - glorious .. and Bath is a place I hope to visit sometime for a browse around ..Congratulations on 25 years ... cheers Hilary
I am very jealous of your weekend. Good job getting your money back on the shoes.
That's a romantic and bookish time. Thanks for sharing it.
