          We spent just two days in Bath last month, and as is quite expected with a holiday on our island, or a “stay cation” as its called, the unpredictable British weather played its part.  One of the shops on “Pulteney Bridge” made a joke at the weathers expence… “Don’t let the sunshine spoil your rain” it said on their window display.  Their advertising department had earned their pay by turning a bad point into a good one and used the British summer weather to sell lightweight rain clothes.
