Bath part 2 – More promenading, embroidery and… Mr Wickham!!

Tweet Day two of the festival actually started off in rather a similar manner as the day before, with another promenade! This was a “mini promenade” and it was the first time, to my knowledge at least, that they’ve had this. It wasn’t nearly as big or as exciting as the big promenade the day before, but then it was called a ‘mini’ one, so I guess that was to be expected. But that said I still had a lovely time walking around chatting with people, admiring beautiful houses and gorgeous costumes. I have also come to the conclusion that living … Continue reading

Bath part 1 – Promenading and theatricals

Tweet I thought I would be able to update on here sooner than this, but I really have been terribly busy, and still am! I got back home from the UK in the evening of the 25th, and in the morning of the 27th I was off again. To Estonia this time where I was going with the choir that I’m in. So it was just a quick visit home, just enough time to throw a few things out of my suitcase and throw a few new things in and be off again. A few great days in Estonia and … Continue reading

“Your head runs too much upon Bath”

Tweet Mrs Morland tells Catherine this after she has returned from the Tilney’s at Northanger Abbey, and right now that applies to me too. I leave for Bath tomorrow morning, for the Jane Austen festival there (fourth time now for me!) and lately my head has “run too much upon Bath”! With preparations, last minute sewing and packing to be done how could it be otherwise? It will be a pleasure and a delight, as it always is, going back to this beautiful city again, participating in all those fun activites and events, and meet all my lovely friends there again. … Continue reading

Bath part 9 – Chawton Cottage

Tweet Right then, last update from this years trip to Bath, wasn’t that what I said? Well here goes. As I mentioned in my previous post, between the dance workshop in the morning and the ball in the evening we (me, Jeanette and Isabel) spent the time down in the little village of Chawton, visiting the Jane Austen House Museum!! Chawton Cottage! Well actually first of all (since we were all three of us starving and in desperate need of food) we made a stop at the lovely little tea room just across the road from the museum; “Cassandra’s Cup”. … Continue reading

Bath part 8 – Chawton House and Sense & Sensibility Ball

Tweet I’ve been debating with myself whether to split this day into two posts or do it all in one. I think I’d better do it in two, because otherwise it’s just gonna be too long. On Saturday the 24th Jeanette and I left Bath early in the morning in a rental car together with our new good friend Isabel and drove for two hours to get to Chawton. The reason we were going down there was because we were going to the third of the three balls I have been talking about. The “Sense & Sensibility Ball” ar Chawton … Continue reading

Bath part 7 – Masked Ball in the Pump Rooms

Tweet Ball number two that I attended was this, the Masked Ball in the Pump Rooms! I don’t know about you, but when I first heard about this event I felt a thrill of excitement run through me! I have long wanted to go to a masked ball, and to go to one in the Pump Rooms, oh my! So even though these balls are more expensive than I think is fun I knew I had to go. And I’m glad I did! I had a mask, a pink one with gold details that I had bought in Florence when … Continue reading
