On Monday I happened to have the afternoon off and decided it was a great opportunity to take a trip to Bath city centre and have a bit of an explore. I've been to Bath a couple of times with friends and family, but never been able to just wander round on my own until now. It turned out to be a lovely afternoon for wandering, if you don't mind dodging the rain showers!
When the sun did come out, it made the whole place look beautiful and I don't think my photos really do justice to just how golden and autumnal everywhere was. I spent a couple of hours just going round the shops and walking alongside the river.
I took a very long time in Whittard of Chelsea debating whether or not to buy some fancy hot chocolate- I tried some samples of their mint and caramel flavoured hot chocolates and was very tempted by the Rocky Road flavour. In the end I didn't buy anything, but I haven't forgotten about them and the temptation is still there!
Something I couldn't resist though was a beautiful blue tartan scarf from Joules. I've been looking out for one and this was just perfect. They also have one in red and another shade of blue/green (I think) but I decided that I probably couldn't buy all of them, although the thought did cross my mind.
I also bought a large pink mug from Waitrose, but unfortunately it just doesn't want to be photographed- the lighting in my room in my placement accommodation isn't very good and every picture I tried to take came out blurry. This might be a good time to say that my posts might start to come slightly less frequently now that I'm out on a placement. A lot of this is due to the fact that I'm really busy doing 'learning-to-be-a-doctor' things in the hospital, but more of it is just frustrating little things like a slow wifi connection that will only connect to one device at a time!
Rather than finish on a complaining note though, I wanted to finish on something happy- the fact I reached 100 Bloglovin followers on Thursday! Thank you to those 100 people, I never expected to have so many followers after such a short amount of time, so that really made me smile.
