Have just spent a couple of nights away in Birmingham to celebrate our anniversary. Accommodation was tall and round in the shape of the Rotunda where we stayed on the top floor. Staying Cool offer various self catering apartments for rent and the location could not have been more perfect for our needs.
Spent Friday wandering around the Jewellery Quarter and doing some Christmas Shopping around the Bull Ring and Christmas Market. In the evening we went to see Chris Addison do stand up at the 'Alex'andra Theatre: very funny, satirical whimsy, but surprisingly cold in the stalls. Seeing the audience hunched in hats and coats prompted his idea of carol singers gathering for mince pies before heading out on the town. Perhaps they should have sold hot chocolate in the interval rather than ice cream!
