While I was in the last stages of my flight back to Reston this afternoon, David was in the town centre enjoying the rather wintry sunshine.

Today was my last day with Lauren and Theo for a while and I was very pleased to be able to go along with them for a Baby Sensory session this morning.

Theo is keen to put together the necessary actions to enable him to move along the floor.

Not everyone loves avocado - David is only a recent convert - past comments when offered it often featured words like 'soap' 'dishwater' etc..
However, grandson Theo has definitely acquired the taste - at an early age.

Today, sadly, it was time for David to return to the US. I will follow in a few days.
Theo enjoyed cuddles with Grandpa before he left and showing off his new sleep suit - with foxy feet..

I had time to fully explore Platform 2 at Bath Spa station this afternoon as my train was cancelled and I had to wait half an hour for the next one. Above is the view from one end of the platform looking back towards Beechen Cliff.
I decided to photograph the view from the other end of the platform too and this is looking towards Southgate. The Christmas tree is up and ready!
Then a little further along the platform in the same direction - a view over the river and to the bus station - maybe a bus would have been the better option?
In the waiting room there is a poster with details of ticket prices from 1938 when a 'cheap return' ticket to London from Bath - available on certain weekdays and at weekends - was 22/- for first class and 14/8 for third class.
Also on display in the waiting room was this old photograph showing the front of the station and the Station Hotel.
I couldn't achieve the same angle without leaving the station but this is quite close, with the station on the right and the curved front of the Royal Hotel (as it now is) in the background.

A wonderful family party today to celebrate two special father and daughter birthdays for Brian and Kate.
The amazing cake, made by Maggie and decorated by Emma reflected their shared farming life!
Twenty members of the family enjoyed a wonderful Sunday lunch together prepared by Maggie.
