Last Saturday I went into Birmingham to do a restaurant review with H. It was at one of our favourite restaurants: Chi Kitchen and we tried out their Christmas menu.
There’s always a bit of toy testing to do at the weekend. H tried out the Fright Factory.
There have been some pretty dawns, but the weather here has been mostly foggy this week. I have spent a lot of time driving around with my headlights on in the middle of the day. One day I went a few miles away and thought the fog had lifted, only to find as I got closer to home that the fog was very much all around my house still. Some days it’s felt like it’s never got light.
Everything is finishing for Christmas and there are lots of decorations up. In Birmingham, even the Bullring Bull has got in on the act. He was very popular and everyone wanted a picture. One woman ignored the red ropes around him and went in with her son. One of the crowd tackled her as to why she had done this (given that she was in the way of everyone else’s pictures) and she just didn’t seem to think the ropes applied to her!
It’s been a bit of a Skylanders Imaginators sort of week. I ran a Twitter competition this week for a starter pack and I am running another Skylanders Imaginators competition next week too. Meanwhile H has been playing with (and eating) these fab decorated biscuits we got sent.
