Been to Birmingham Today

Hi !
I have been to Birmingham today with my friend...the old part of the Town centre...... with all the outdoor markets and the "rag market"...where you can buy so many "crafty" things and materials at a quarter of the price you pay anywhere else.
It brought so back so many memories of when i was a teenager.....how i used to love the Hustle and bustle and all the colors.

It was just the same today...like stepping back in time,...there was a sort of Jamaican band playing...very loud and happy, all the colorfull stalls ...and the smells ohh heaven...just like been transported back in a time machine, wonderful.
You would have loved it Kerry... i thought of you.
I brought all sorts of useless junk , some jewellery and a model of the Cutty Sark for Simon that would have cost me at least 3 times as much in the High street,..(he'll love it ) some material for making quilts and little bits and pieces for making Lavender bags, some support tights for my aching but (at the time) happy legs.......then had some hot chocolate, and a hot Cornish pasty, that we ate walking around.....and dare i say it a Hot Jam doughnut...bliss ...i was 16 again.... but then i had to come home !!!!

My legs are not so happy now..really need those tights, but it was lovely to go after such a long time...and i know i must go again soon..it really cheered me up.
I am going down to Simon & Pams now, to give him his Ship,...hope everyone over in Nevada is well and had a good day too.


  1. That sounds like so much fun, I wish I could have joined you. I would love to have a nice, good feeling day like that. I am ready for some as soon as the weather is nice. It's great that you have a neat place like that. We have some to, but we have to wait until it's nice to go. Howard and I did some shopping and I went to visit my sister, with another sister. We had a good talk and I just got home, it's 11:00 and I need to get some sleep soon. I am happy to hear you had a good day, rest your legs and good night friend.

  2. Sounds like you had a fantastic day!
