Today was spent on a whistle stop tour to see my youngest son before he goes off to India, and to deliver a commissioned baby quilt, more about the quilt later.
He has just moved to Clifton/Bristol and I have been pleasantly impressed with the area, our first visit coincided with the Balloon festival, this time was to see their second new apartment.
We arrived just in time for breakfast, Tom takes after his dad and is a great cook rustling up tasty treats in minutes. Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and avocado on sourdough from a great local bakers was on the menu this morning.
I love the apartments in Clifton, they are beautiful on the outside and light and airy on the inside.
The area also has its fair share of independent shops and cafes with lots of quirky places to discover.
We can't all get together now until the end of November but I'm sure I will return to discover more nice things.
