This afternoon we are heading off to help at a Superhero's party and have been allocated the face painting bit (eek I hope those kids know that I can't paint for toffee ;0). We don't do Halloween here in this ol'house ... I didn't grow up with it and so I can't say it's something I enjoy, it's not something I feel very comfy with (you might say I'm a bit of a party pooper but that's just me).

We also made a little trip into Birmingham, it was my second visit to this city and the main purpose was to go and see Andy's Brighton and Hove Albion football club playing against the Birmingham Blues. I'm not much of a football fan but when I do go to a game (about 2x per year) I do enjoy the atmosphere and excitement at scoring a goal. I'll let the pictures do the talking for our trip to a small part of the city ...
|I love the wastelands of discarded industrial factories|
|I promise never to post another football pic on this here very blog!|
|I want that satchel please|
|We found this groovy boho part of the city|
|Birmingham's Bullring and neon sign|
|Vintage clothing and some shopping in the Bullring at Forever21|
All in all it was good fun and we hope to go up with some other friends around new year. Wishing you a grand week ahead, I'll be back to post about my reasons to be cheerful no doubt on Thursday (especially now that the clocks have changed), I hope one of these will be having got some more crochet done xox
