Royal visits

I have officially now seen up close 5 Royals (Queen, Prince Philip, Charles, Camilla and today - WILLIAM) and one leader of the opposition (David Cameron for those of you that aren't up with the latest British politics). Prince Willy was visiting the hospital today and walked past our offices. Hee hee!

Immersing ourselves in Bath

Our friends Dan and Jen who we stayed with in Bath. That's Dan's yummy breakfast (close up below) - home made baked beans, perfectly poached eggs and hollandaise sauce - yummy! Dan had preserved his own bacon which was deeelliiicccious.

Balloons outside Dan & Jen's flat - on a misty evening.

Dan & Jen's living room. Huge!

Jen & the River Avon, Bradford upon Avon.

Phil and Dan outside the Bridge Tea Rooms (or as Phil would put it, the 'Bloody Expensive' Tea Rooms), in Bradford upon Avon. The best cream teas in Britain apparently. We ordered one to share and it was yummy. Very light crumbly scones and scrummy clotted cream (sorry Dad, I like the stuff). And the tea was 'top notch'!

'The Bradford Gudgeon' - a weather vane on the Bradford Town Bridge. Nice fishy!

The further adventures of Tim & CB

Yesterday, Tim and Christmas Bear had a friend join them in an attempt to recreate the famous stunt from their days in the the Peabody Bros Flying Circus. Unfortunately there was no motorbike available. Practice is important - they need to keep their eye in!.
4 Sept 2006 - What are they up to now!
01 Sept 2006 - Further proof that I have far too much time on my hands at work ; - )xx
