To market, to market to by a fat pig!
Home again, home again, jiggeddy jig!
The children's rhyme that comes to my mind when thinking about markets!
I love shopping in Bath, Somerset as the city is so beautiful. There are usually things to be sold on the open stalls that are scattered along the main streets, but they also have an undercover market. During last winter I noticed that these hats, in the photo below, were very popular and they are really cosy and warm. The one I bought, kept my ears from freezing on playground duty. Don't these hats look lovely and colourful altogether on a stand?
There were flags on sale from most major countries of the world and I thought that they made a lovely picture and had to stop and take the photo below. Bath gets many visitors from all over the world but I wonder who does buy them though?
It was St. George's Day recently, our patron saint and although England is fairly insipid about being patriotic, compared to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland who go to town with celebrating their Saints Days, the media are trying to enthuse the English to fly a flag on each April 23rd! There is even talk about having a National Holiday at some point in the future. Maybe I will buy one next year....... though not as big as these ones!
Why shouldn't we be proud of our country? Maybe we would do something to help put ourselves back on track, if we were more patriotic! All working together and being proud of who we are, in our many diverse ways!
