The sweetest bakery in Lacock. Lacock, where lots of movies were made: Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice (1995), Robin Hood, The Other Boleyn Girl etc. I was informed that no movie is planed for the next six months. That's about how far in advanced the villagers get told.
.
We got lucky that morning. A quiet morning and we were able to share a table with a few other visitors. Usually, since we tend to visit on weekends and/or school holiday, the bakery is full and takeaway was all we could do.
.
If you visit, do come in. Friendly folks and they dress up in dresses from yesteryear. I wish I know what era.
.
Road tripping tomorrow. Not sure when I'll post again. This is it until next time 😘

I have the new Albums, multiple photos in one feed, feature and so testing it out. My only complain is that I can only do square photos instead of rectangles.
.
I think I am going to like it since you have to manually scroll to see the album content; you have the choice to see more, or not. It will be handy, in my opinion, when we visit an estate with many great rooms or there are some cute behind the scene photos that I wouldn't usually post on my feed and want the photos or videos to stay longer than 24hrs aka Stories.
.
Let me know what you think of this one. Yes/no? Suggestions on what you'd like to see in the future if yes? I want to album content to be relevant and gives you value. .
Burford again. Because I happen to have a few photos to test out this new IG feature. Oh, and the town is gorgeous ☺
.
Sooooo windy out there! Hope nobody gets blown away 😘

πŸ‘§: Β£2 for the jam?
🐢: Nope! It's £2.50 and a doggie treat.
.
The cutest home shop in Lacock. Usually with Lily out front to guard the goods.
.
The village is owned almost in its entirety by the National Trust. I am not quite sure how this works. People just rent? Will dig around later, I am in between appointments right now.
.
I hope your Wednesday is lovely! A bit grey and 🌧 here but otherwise another precious day to do the most with what we have today 😘

Bath. Can't say you've been to Bath and not have a photo of this scene.
.
Pulteney Bridge crosses the river Avon. It was built by Robert Adam and completed in 1769. The initial budget was Β£1,000 but ended up spending Β£20k. In today's money, Β£7 million! Somebody went waaaaay over budget!!
.
Currently, besides getting people, pets and public vehicles + 🚲 from one side of the river to the other, it is where a few shops and cafes are located.
.
I was on the IG naughty step again last night. I think I said "thank you" way too many times on my own post. I was waiting for gym to finish. I had a few hours to show appreciation to all of you who commented on my photo and IG probably thought I was a robot. So, I am going to learn to say thank you in different languages!! If, for example, you get an arigato and you're English, excuse me in advance πŸ™ˆ

The prettiest rows of houses in and English town? And don't forget all the shops just a few doors down. I'd go broke! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
.
Wrote a blog post. Finally! πŸ™ˆ It's about Instagram again. How to grow your feed through consistency and value. It's a long one, may need a few cups of tea/coffee ☺
.
Have a fab Monday! πŸ’•

As long as it's not miserably cold or raining, it's always a great idea to sit down for a hot drink outside with a friend or loved one.

Burford. The Anglo-Saxon period was between the 5th-11th century. According to historians, Burford came about in the middle of the Anglo-Saxon period. After the Normans won the 1066 battle, a bigger and better town of Burford was built. Not long after, so about 900 years ago, the town merchants were granted a charter to hold their own market. Today Burford is full of lovely eateries, independent shops and gorgeous homes. It's no surprise that Forbes magazine voted Burford as one of the best place to live in Europe. If you're into celebrities, Kate Moss and Winslet live somewhere around this town too.
.
A down day. Time to relax and just do whatever. I may blog. It's been ages ☺ Hope your Sunday is peaceful!

A beautiful day we had yesterday in Bibury. The 14th century weaver's cottages again with a different street scene. I think the dog wanted M πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ If you are a UK passport holder, these are the cottages inside your passport.
.
Our visit yesterday was so much nicer. Parking was easy and we had a few instances where it was just us. Summertime is just too busy with coaches of tourists.
.
Back home and enjoying a bit of quiet time in between swimming and a birthday party drop-off. What are you up to today?
.
Will be catching up on IG too. It's been hit and miss this whole week due to our road trip. I hope you've enjoyed the Stories. So many beautiful places and so little time.
.
Have a great weekend, all! 😘

We all need a locomotive in our garden πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
.
On our way home. We made good memories. We learned a few lessons on empathy too.
.
Who knows what Emma ate but she had an allergic reaction to something. She has no known allergies. We thought maybe gluten. Since a bump or two came soon after eating a piece of bread.
While we were 90% sure it wasn't gluten, she was worried and I felt her pain. All day we looked for menus that had something without gluten.
.
What a tough day!
.
We saw the doc, got meds, and decided that 100% not gluten.
.
M is still bumpy and itchy but much better. A few days were miserable but we learned what it's like to have dietary limitations.
.
Lunching in Burford. The kids will be made to walk up the hill. They don't know it yet though πŸ˜ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚
.
Laters!!

Vicars’ Close, adjoining Wells Cathedral, is believed to be the only complete medieval street left in England. This significant landmark was designed to provide communal accommodation for the Vicars Choral, who sang daily worship within the Cathedral. This centuries-old tradition continues today and is a unique and much valued part of life at Wells Cathedral.
.
The houses of the close were built in the 14th century under direction from Bishop Ralph of Shrewsbury and the iconic chimneys were added in the 15th century. Originally 42 houses were built (one per vicar), but some were combined following the Reformation when vicars were allowed to marry. Today, the Close comprises 27 residences, a chapel, library, treasury and muniment room. There is also a dining hall connected to the Cathedral by a covered walkway, the Chain Gate Bridge.
.
Reflecting the Close’s significance, all its buildings are Grade I listed. The current occupants still include all twelve men of the Vicars Choral, plus the organists and virgers. Vicars Choral have remained at the heart of life at Wells Cathedral since the 1100s and are now recognised as a world-class choir.
.
The above was copied and pasted from the cathedral website. Gramming on the go with tea and cake on the table πŸ™ˆ Wells is my new favourite city! More in Wells later!!
.
Hope your day's lovely!

Beautiful fun street in Bath. A world heritage city with a 2000 years old history.
.
A slight change of day plan. We're in Bath having a quick lunch before a doctor's appointment. Miss M needs to be seen. Nothing major but to the doc we must go.
.
Bath is stunning! I wish I have more time to casually explore. It's raining now and with kids, a bit selfish if I do whatever I want to do.
.
I am not disappointed though. I have loved the time with them and the things we got to explore together.

An evening stroll with the one you love
.
I have never been a Valentine's Day kind of girl. I did, when I was a teen, wished to be treated extra special on this special day but as I got older and actually had a loving relationship, the day never mattered anymore since everyday should be a day full of love.
.
Love. It's an action. Love is giving. Love is a conscious effort to do kind and generous things to others. From these actions you will then feel love. The love as a feeling is fleeting. Just like any feelings. This is why love is and needs to be an action. Keep doing loving things, friends πŸ’•

What I do best: Finding water for the kids to mess about in while I snap πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ Gramming live from Lower Slaughter.
.
Slaughter. It's not what you think. Slaughter stems from the Old English name for a wet land 'slough' or 'slothre' (Old English for muddy place).
.
Besides this pretty 19th century mill, the most romantic road (2011 vote) is in this village also. You can see a bit of it in Stories.
.
I'd love to live in this house!!!
.
Have a great day! 😘
