Birmz - Part two

Eyup ducks!

So the adventures in Birmingham have begun. I took the flatmates and the boyfriend up to The Bullring – The shopping centre in town. Their reaction to how much cheaper stuff is in The Midlands was priceless. Also took them to a real Krispy Kreme place, complete with donut-producing conveyor belt and free donuts while you’re queuing. They were literally astounded, and it was beautiful.

We ended up going to a 90’s night last night at one of my old haunts, and it was literally like I’d never been away. We met up with my best friend from school, who is a fully-fledged grown up nowadays, as much as she won’t admit it :P. Naturally my parents were chatting with her for a while before moving onto the university lot. I’d sort of forgotten how much my dad could talk until we all got back to the house.

The 90’s night was an absolute blast. The nightclub was even better than I remember, and I've had the task of finding the least incriminating photo from that night out to put on here…

…and this was the best I could do. So lots of laughs were had, and the taxi driver who was taking us home took great pleasure in humiliating me. After stating that the song ‘Timber’ by Ke$ha is a bit of a life-ruiner (I have a habit of dancing awfully every time that song comes on, regardless of the situation), he decided that he had it on a CD in the car – so naturally I was trying to dance while cooped up in the back seat of a cab. I’m more of a dancing podium kind of guy, but you have to work with what you’re given I guess!

Anyways, I’m off to make a 1pm breakfast. The others are still all asleep somewhere in the house, so I probably should make some sort of attempt at finding them haha.

Ciao for now!

Birmz – Part one!

Eyup, me lovelies J

So this week, as it’s Easter and all, the flatmates, the boyfriend and I are headed to Birmingham for an adventure – figure I should  go with them, so they have a native there! 


We arrived this morning, just about in one piece, and are literally all fighting to stay awake so we can go to a cocktail bar later on this evening. Not that I’m one to turn down a cocktail, but I do love my sleep :P.

A couple of them crashed at my flat last night, and even though we set countless alarms, we still had to dash out of the flat at the last minute! If that isn’t proof that I’m not a morning person then I don’t know what is!

So one two trains, a tube and 2 buses later, we are casually all sitting in my house doing a big slice of nothing, and it’s delightful. Even managed to get all of my work done before I left so I actually have this week to myself, which is delightful. Literally, funnily enough, as everyone else seems to have fallen asleep. Poor little tykes are all tuckered out haha.

Rather exciting week planned though! Due to be going out tomorrow night with some of my friends from school for a reminiscence session, that’ll be odd. Then typical touristy stuff, including, but not limited to a trip into Stratford-Upon-Avon (May as well try and get some culture in between the sleep and adventure haha) – plus the butterfly farm, and Drayton Manor which should be great. Expect loads of photos, including shameless group selfies.

Anyways, I really should wake this lot up – no sleep on tour!
