You need never be without a mug in Bath.
Ehh? Picture lost? At first I read this as you drinking tea in the bath, (oh bliss, not experienced since my twenties, before children)!
Then I thought maybe you went to wonderful Bath for the weekend, one of the delights of the UK. Either way, a good thing to do in the stressful ten days running up to Christmas.

I won't use Rachel's language, but should this post have had a picture?

S..yes I did go to Bath for the weekend. My friend wanted to explore the Christmas Market. I hate any Christmas Market but my gift to her was oohing and aahing in the right places as we looked at overpriced 'stuff'. In many many of the delightful stores there I found myself looking at china/crockery and could not believe how many coffee and tea mugs abound...and I found myself feeling like a mug for traipsing around after said friend.
Tom...my pictures are not great and still need to be transferred from my phone...but no mugs...and my friend doesn't 'do' charity shops so every now and again I would nip into one while she carried on 'ooohing and aaahing' over the assembled sheds and their xmas novelties......although I did try some good cheese at one place.......

That is true friendship! Not a mug, a good friend. And you did get into a charity shop or two! There's a Fab Oxfam bookshop in Bath, it's tucked away out of the centre though. My husband had to go into the pub across the road, (well-positioned!), thus we both had a good time.

Ah. I am now wondering why you bother to moderate your comments.

Was that quote from Chaucer's "The Wife of Bath"?

S..thank you...and how lovely..each of you satisfied with how to spend your time..a win win!
T...There are so many things that I drive myself mad with ....OCD has a lot to answer for.
YP....d'you know when I was at school I used to love to listen to one of our teachers read Chaucer aloud...she had the most marvelous voice and really made the subject interesting.

Plenty mugs going around up here, trust me. I think I may be one of them! The secret with Christmas Markets is not to buy anything but rush home and see if you can make it yourself but then I'm Scottish - being tight with money is inbuilt, so some would have it!! Hope it's all going swimmingly at yours, Libs. xxx
