We returned to Birmingham after our trip to the Mediterranean. We resumed our jobs in city centre. One evening after work we met to go to the shopping centre the Bull Ring and saw that they had these the Big Hoot owl statues everywhere. They all had different designs and they really were all over the city.
|Veganised English Breakfast.|
We had a hankering for a English Breakfast so we made a veganised version with Linda McCarthy Sausages.
On the weekend we decided to take the 8C inner city circle bus which may or may not be something that visitors to Brum would want to do. We did it just to say we did and see more of Brum.
The Birmingham Vegans host a pizza night on the first Tuesday of every month at the Wellington. It was the vegetarian hot which was extremely spicy. Both of our mouths were on fire.
The girls had a hair party outside to colour their hair. This is the set up. The hair products were vegan and really cheap courtesy of Super Drug.
Alexandra Burke from X-Factor UK. It was a good show and Alexandra Burke is an excellent singer. It was showing at the Hippodrome.
Acro Lounge. Loungers is a chain with locations all over the UK. It was pretty nice and funnily enough was completely full of couples. Great minds think alike. We started with hummus with ciabatta.
We felt lazy the next day and ordered Mr Singh's pizza for dinner. We got the vegan pepperoni pizza which was just the right amount of spice.
Warley Woods which is pretty nice. It is a huge field and has some "wilderness" trails as well.
This is a drinking fountain from 1907.
We hiked deep into the "wilderness".
A few days later I had an interview with a recruitment agency and after my interview I showed up at my previous place of employment to say hello. My former colleague and I decided to get some lunch together at The Victorian Restaurant.

Then on the weekend we made our way south to the Isle of Wight and Portsmouth. Looking back it was a great month.
To see what we are up to next month, find it here: "...And Working Overtime."
