Day 8: The city centre.

Hello Friends and Followers.
A damp start to Tuesday, but the sun would put in an appearance for a while.
We walked into the city, as I wanted to get some fruit and cheese from the vibrant market. I do love Birmingham market and all it has to offer.
The city is going through something of a transformation, with lots of building work going on, which only enhance the city even more.
Having walked around the market, brought our purchases we walked back past Council Hall, where university students were celebrating having collected their degrees. One of my first jobs many years ago was to make the gowns that are used by students to collect their degrees. I used to cut them out and sew them together. I also made barrister and judges robes. So seeing these gowns bought a smile to my face.
We arrived back to the boat for lunch and the rain decided to fall once more.
I spent the afternoon finishing another book and I am now about to read 'A Mother's Sacrifice' by Kitty Neale. I am going through books like a dose of salts at the moment, which is nice, because when on our mooring I hardly read at all.

Pop back soon xx
