Last Saturday, my friends and I went on our annual pilgrimage to the Bath Christmas Market! We all met at university in Bath, so meetups in the city are a lovely occasion even though none of us live particularly far. Unfortunately, we could only make Saturday, which was the busiest and most hellish day, so it wasn't the relaxing romp it usually is. It took me over an hour just to snake my way in and out of the car park, and then we spent the whole afternoon trying to find somewhere to eat that wasn't closed or packed to the brim. As fun as the market is, we all decided that if we had to go on a Saturday again, we probably wouldn't bother. It was pretty and it's always nice meeting up with my friends, but the crush just made it more chore than fun. Oh well!
I actually nearly lost these photos. Half way through copying them onto the PC to make this blog post yesterday, I got a popup saying the card needed to be formatted. I was getting 'memory card error' in every device I put the card in, and I spent the evening flailing and Googling for help. Eventually, I came across a program called Zero Assumption Recovery which managed to save all of the photos (which was crazy since anything else I tried told me there was no disk in my SD card slot at all, it just wasn't recognised at all!) Best of all, it was free! Total lifesaver. Gonna chuck the card in the bin now, hah.
Every year, one of our traditions involves climbing up Bath Abbey. They offer special little tours where you're allowed up to the very top, overlooking the whole city below, with complimentary hot chocolate or mulled wine. We do it every year, it's just really nice.
And here's a bonus photo by Sarah, since I'm never in any photos I take myself. Rockin' some very fuchsia pink hair at the moment... waiting for it to fade to the baby pink I prefer.
Anyway! Tomorrow my parents and I are flying out to New York City for a week of festive good times! In typical nerd fashion, I am absolutely taking my laptop (and tablet, and phone, and camera, and 3DS...) as well as a Smash Book, a sketch book and some other goodies, so you won't be without me long. We chose an apartment with free wifi. Of course. :>
