Bath

Awake at 5am this morning, the sleeping is getting better.

Yesterday we went to Bath for the day, an hour and a half train ride from London.
 It is a touristy small city, very old and has hot water baths there. We did the hop on hop off bus to get a good over view and had a Cornish pasty for lunch.  The others looked around the centre and watched buskers while I caught the shuttle to the American Museum to the Kaffe Fasset and gold work embroidery exhibitions. I don't know how to add a link to words on the iPad, so here it is http://americanmuseum.org/about-the-museum/current-exhibitions/kaffe-2014-the-colourful-world-of-kaffe-fassett/

It was a great exhibition

 
There was also a display of embroidery in the local cathedral. (For the embroidery ladies) This alter cloth was done by Jane Lemon and a group she belongs to


It was a stunning day and very warm. The train ride back was fast (125 miles per hour!) we headed out to Picadilly Circus last night to the hustle and bustle and we to Thriller Live a tribute show to Michael Jackson, followed his life from Jackson 5 to his last hits, the cast were amazing the dancing was incredible and one particular guy was very believable as MJ a great night.
This pic was taken at half time those two people up the front had nothing to do with the show.

Every morning we go to breakfast to a franchise here called Pret a Manger the food is all organic, freshly created on site and delicious, we also went there last night for a salad for dinner and Jenny and Kelvin found one at Bath and got their lunch from there yesterday as well, lol. (Hayley, the little cup on left is coconut yoghurt, yum) the little cup with lid is espresso, big cup of peppermint tea made with the large silk tea bags so yummy.

We have managed to conquer the underground here and I have an app on my phone that tells us what trains to catch to get to where we want, it is a life (and marriage) saver.

Today we are going to the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and Harrods.
