This weekend I was away having fun in Birmingham (and doing my OU Welsh!). We went to the Black Country Museum. Fantastic! There are shops to go in where you can buy things made as they would have been made during the Industrial Revolution. There's a mine to go down, a boat to go on (costs extra - didn't do it), houses to see, demonstrations of people working doing things in the original ways - we saw someone making a chain link by link.
If you are ever in the Birmingham area - go to the Black Country Museum. Give yourself the whole day. Make sure you go to the houses at the top near the entrance - my best bit.
This week has gone something like this:
Monday: Up at 5.30am.
Climbed Ben Lomond (967m) from 10m above sea level. Hurt on the way down. Did it as fast as we could. It was icy/snowy at the top - and very cold in the thick cloud. You can't see the top in my photo.
Worked in the evening.
Tuesday: Up at 6.30am
Worked in Edinburgh - 7.15 departure from home... 6.30pm return.
Brownies - made shortbread red nose biscuits
Finished the baking at home (using left-over dough).
Wednesday: Up later (7.30ish but for no good reason).
Worked in Edinburgh: 9.00am departure.
Worked in Dundee at night - home 11.30pm
Thursday: Normal job - 9-5
NOTHING TO DO AT NIGHT (except practice... should also have done Welsh but didn't).
Friday: Normal job.
Working in Dundee tonight (home 12.00 as on the train)
Monday: DAY OFF! (til 3.30).. might find a slightly smaller hill...
