OK, so I sort of went a bit mad on the Headline of this post…. We went to Birmingham (UK) today. But that doesn’t sound exciting, so I decided to spice it up a bit.
I have done no painting today, I took a break from any hard thinking, and went to the city.
I am unemployed at the moment… well, sort of… I am waiting to start my new job. So this week I am at home. And my dear hubby took this week as a holiday. We were watching a programme the other day, and they were filming from the new library in Birmingham, so we decided to meander over there and see what all the buzz was about.
First we bought the tickets. Now… The ticket guy tells us the train will be late… so we have to wait almost an hour…
And of course it starts to rain, so we decide to go to the Bus Station for a coffee.
It’s getting time for the train to arrive, so we head back down to the train station. Luckily, it’s only across the road from the Bus Station. (This is all in Redditch, UK). (Did I mention it is still raining at this time?)
We finally made it to Birmingham New Street Station.
I decided to be a tourist today 🙂
Afterwards we took a look at the brand new Birmingham Library.
It’s really cool! It’s one of the largest libraries in the world! It has 10 levels. (To me, it looks like a giant cake) 😀
This library is located by the Birmingham REP (theatre).
So, that is what we did today, and I have to say, every time we go to Birmingham, we are exhausted when we get home.
It’s such a vast city centre, and we mostly walk…. for miles…
Even though it rained, all day, it was a pretty good day, and I am glad we decided to go.
Thanks for visiting, I appreciate you ALL!
