We had a good journey to Birmingham Airport and arrived about an hour later.
Our flight is scheduled for 10.35, so we had plenty of time to kill before taking off.
A trouble-free flight and it even landed ahead of schedule. 45 minutes later we were queuing for the bus from the airport to the city centre.
The weather? Cold and pi**ing down with rain – yuk!!
Because of work on the new tram system, the traffic was awful! Jams all the way. After 30 minutes we got off at our stop and after a short walk, we arrived at our apartment. We were too early to check-in so we had lunch at the Portrait Gallery (super food!)
We then mooched around town and then walked back to the apartments to check-in. We’ve got a very nice room, separate kitchen, bedroom and almost as many remote- controls as back home 🙂
We went to bed for a couple of hours and got up around 5.30.
We picked up a cab at around 7 heading for the Pleasance Theatre as part of our ‘Fringe Experience’. We’re seeing Lucy Porter then Luke Toilson.
Lucy was excellent and engaged the audience well – especially Joshua from America, who she pretended to fancy throughout! Shame about the use of the ‘c’ word though.
We’d not heard of Luke, but we did see a great write-up from the Torygraph. He was brilliant Very original and didn’t ridicule members of the audience too much. He played ‘The Cellar’ – capacity 40! He deserved somewhere larger – he’s definitely got potential and we enjoyed him more than Lucy.
We grabbed a cab outside and were back in the apartment by 11pm
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
