My Life with S

A Snapshot From Our Weekend 2015-07-14

S was ill for most of last week, but by the weekend we were going a bit stir-crazy so we decided to cheer her up by going to find a few more Barons.  Hello Kitty BaronThis is the Hello Kitty Baron. We’d heard a lot about him, but hadn’t been to find him yet. S loved him, as you can see!
Queen Elizabeth Gardens Park
 After the Hello Kitty Baron, we had one more left on the trail that we’d not found. But he would have to wait, for we had also spotted a park!
New Trousers from House of Fraser Petite
Do you like my new trousers? They’re from the petite collection at House of Fraser. I’m trying to branch out from my usuall jeans/t shirt combo, and I love these because they look quite smart – but they don’t feel smart. They’re comfortable. Even if I am pulling a funny face in the photo…
Queen Elizabeth Gardens Park

Poor S isn’t quite tall enough for these binoculars yet, and could only see the sky! That didn’t stop her having a good look though!
Barons Charter Trussell Trust Baron This is the Trussell Trust Baron, and our last one – we’ve finally found all twenty-five! S celebrated by doing a lot of balancing.
Barons Charter Salisbury Baron
  This is the Salisbury Baron, outside of the Fisherton Mill in town. By this point S was a bit tired from all her running around but she still wanted to pose for a photo. The mini-baron next to them is for sale, for people who want their own Baron. I forgot to change the white balance on my camera though, so he’s come out looking a bit like a ghost!
Barons Chaerter Traditional Tribal Baron
 This is the Traditional Tribal Baron. We saw him on our way back into town and decided to stop for a photo, even though we see him quite often. He’s very bright and S managed a tiny, nonchalant thumbs up!

    Great pics - looks like such a fun day! Love the idea of searching for the barons. They are amazing! Are they just there permanently? What is the background behind them? Sorry for all the questions, just think they look so cool and interested to know more about them! xx Little Fish recently posted...28/52 Watching from the SwingMy Profile

      Thanks Merlinda, I think you're right about getting out. We only had short trips but they really made a difference to both of us!
