The past few days in Bath have been coated in sunshine and blue skies, and while a little windy and chilly, I've been making the most of the nice weather, which has included an impromptu picnic with everyone from Hiscocks, lots of walks around the lake and work on the benches outside of the halls. My friend Immy and I went for another walk behind the university halls over the hills and the lake which usually has lots of fishermen sat around it fishing very early in the morning, normally accompanied by several ducks and a heron. Can you tell I love it here? :P
The lovely fishing lake. It's so peaceful here.

A tree that Immy thought resembled a dog. I enjoyed that :)
The other morning I also managed to save a tiny spider before it was whisked off down the drain as I got myself a drink, lucky I saw the little mite as he was nearly a goner! I've rescued several spiders this week from house-mates' rooms and the kitchen. I even managed to safely help a wasp and a moth out of my room and the kitchen during the first term of university. Just call me Dr Dolittle!
I've also been making the most of living next to a lake and getting a daily dose of walks. The swans were incredibly friendly and came right over to say hello!
I think swans are so pretty, but that may possibly stem from watching The Swan Princess one too many times as a kid! Being swept up in the whimsy of a magical swan, they always seem a little bit more fantastical to me, but these two were super friendly which only cemented that idea. That and I'm a big softie when it comes to animals and like to pretend I live in a Disney film filled with friendly, talking animals...
The honey bees are also finally out, which can only mean one thing - Spring is on the way!
I have fun in the sun :)
How has everyone else's weekend been?
