Birthday in Brum
We celebrated my birthday a day early this year due to everyone working my actual birthday. We decided to visit Birmingham for a spot of shopping, somewhere nice for lunch and of course, my birthday wouldn't be complete without a NT trip ;)
We spent an hour exploring the Bull Ring, picking up some bargains on the way, new shoes for spud, a new dress and some CD's for the birthday girl!
We opted for Jamie's Italian for lunch and we weren't disappointed, especially with our lovely waiter! Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and yummy mocktails!
We navigated away across the city quite easily, and made our way to NT Back to Backs. This is an unusual property, a court of back to back houses. Each house is prepared in the era of some of its past residents, starting from 1840 and ending in 1960. We particularly enjoyed the fact that it was a 'hands on' property, meaning Louie could really interact and get stuck in.
Walking back to the car park, Louie found a park to let off some steam (in his gorgeous new orange shoes!) and so concludes our birthday trip!
