And that's the correct answer. It's a life size dummy of Jane outside the Jane Austen Centre on Gay Street. Not quite sure why but I made a lil cameo of her

The funny thing about this is I had no idea there was a statue of her, but one of my old school friends is a seriously hard core costumer and has gone to an Austen day or two in Bath....

'Statue' would be an optimistic word for what is in effect a polystyrene taylor's dummy they shove out on the pavement each day to attract the punters. There is also a costume museum which is pretty interesting if you like that kinda thing.

The costume museum is definitely worth a side trip, will do one day. There is an amazing serious vintage textile shop too, apparently.

In unrelated news, Oxfam have a website and a 70 % off sale, and I may have scored an iconic Issey Miyake not Pleats please dress for 60 quid. Yay!

Oh yeah, so there is!. Never heard of it before but will take a ride by there in the near future and have a look.

Now there's a spirited gal! Inventive too. I have a huge soft spot for psychopathic Russian women as it goes

is the best that I can come up with, they've taken the ad down since I've bought it. He does very pleated stuff which is quite structural and very comfy and flattering. Mainline stuff is several hundred pounds a piece, although the Pleats Please range is more affordable - I have several pieces, the tops were very good for work as they didn't crumple.

Lutra Parva

Something a bit out of the ordinary on the canal

Spoiler





She was just serenely floating there on the Kennet & Avon at Bathampton with the last gleams of winter light lancing over her stern and making the wood look very nice indeed with the rippling reflected light off the canal. So I took a photo as you do. It was only on looking at the neg later that I thought to ask 'wtf does Lutra Parva mean?'. Those of you with a more in-depth classical education than I will of course recognise immediately that it means 'Little Otter' but I had to google it. Google came up with this first hit and it seems she is really quite a special boat.

Was kinda satisfying to make that later connection between me playing around with some nice light and a very beautiful lady.

Eta: I took this couple of the same boat earlier going the other way up the canal - just cos I liked the nice fittings and ropes and so forth.

Yes, I recall discussing that very thing with you quite a while back when we considered the potential fun to be had negotiating wet boat gangplanks in the dark after strong ale in the lockside booza

One more here on the same day of the also unusual but lovely Beatrix

which although not quite the same name, always makes me think of this

anyway.

One of my uni friends is renovating one, I think the plan is to decamp to it once their kid has left school.
