Life Begins At....

James celebrated his 40th birthday a few weeks ago, with good friends, good wine and good cake!

The Jaguar car cake made for me by Boola's Bakery in Sutton, highly recommended!

James is his birthday present, a lovely new suit from Ben Sherman.

The aftermath...

Shame about the wine bottle in the photo!

The halloween pumpkin I carved for the weekend, not a bad effort for my first
time (even if I do say so myself).

On Safari

James has promised to take me to Longleat Safari Park ever since we arrived in the UK, and a few weeks back we made the trip. We stayed at a gorgeous little B&B that was a converted Victorian school house. It was in Frome, about 20 minutes south of Bath so we took the opportunity to head there for dinner and a look around before going to the safari park the next day.

The gorgeous grounds at Longleat. It is owned by eccentric Lord Bath and is a little like a Michael Jackson neverland in the UK!

Driving through the lion and tiger enclosures.

I'm sure this is a smirk on his face, as moments before he had stuck his head through the window and stolen a cup of food out of my lap!

Royal Crescent in Bath

Our cute little room at the B&B, with stairs up to the breakfast room through a secret door in the bookcase!
