What a fun weekend I had!
At lunchtime last Thursday I went to a bookshop near my work to look for Persuasion or Northangar Abbey by Jane Austen as these are the novels she set in Bath. I bought Persuasion and started to read it, hoping to finish while there or shortly after. I was worrying a bit while in Bath, as I read Persuasion at every chance I got, and Bath was mentioned but the main action wasn’t happening there (I worried: “Will the book get there while I’m still here?”). The book gets to Bath halfway through the novel (and I was still there at this point) and then stays there!
Paul and I caught a train to Bath on Friday. After dropping off our bags at our hotel we went to the Thermae Bath Spa for a four hour session of spas and steam rooms.
