Chickens, Batteries and Rooftops.

Down in town last night to see "What We Did on Our Holiday", a film with a great cast - Billy Connolly, David Tennant, Rosamund Pike, Celia Imrie et al - but disappointing once Billy Connolly's part was played. After that the whole thing turned into sentimental Disney-lite, and  disappointing seeing as Andy Hamilton was one of the writers. On the way back up the hill afterwards, we spotted this chicken in a shop window - what every Christmas display needs!
Looking out of the kitchen window this morning, my eye was caught by the splendid colours of our hornbeam below.
Into town this morning, I saw this van and realised that I'd never even conceived of the concept of burger joy before.
My reason for the trip was to visit the Apple Temple to get a replacement battery in my iPhone, and to challenge a "Genius" to figure out why Su's laptop sporadically spontaneously restarts - no definitive diagnosis and no cure as yet.
Went over to Widcombe to meet up with Su, passing the roadworks to make Widcombe High Street no longer part of a major route through Bath. 
The river looked very tranquil. 
This afternoon our neighbour very kindly shinned up onto our roof to take photographs of our chimney stack, giving this unusual view of the van in the process.
Great view up the hill as well. 
This day a year ago, I was up on the golf course above Victoria Park with Bella on a lovely, clear morning.
