So I am 52 living in Birmingham, it is not somewhere I ever envisioned living but life always has other ideas for us! I lived in Monmouth South Wales for 20 years and then I met Rob via Facebook, we met up (outside Iceland) and then June 2011 found me moving to Brum, I have to say it has surprised me, I love its diversity and Birmingham city centre itself is something to behold and if you love shopping then ladies trust me it’s worth a trip but I would suggest going on the train, the traffic and parking is the stuff of nightmares😱
I have two grown up daughters Helen and Rosie and a gorgeous grandson Alfie who is a very grown up 4!
Helen and Rosie took me to Birmingham town centre for my 50th birthday 2 years ago and we had such a lovely day, lunch at Jamie Oliver’s, one of his restaurants, not his house obviously and we hit the shops!
I would also highly recommend a visit to the Bullring shopping centre and Grand Central. Helen and I visited Selfridges famous food hall, oh happy day, the smells and sights, food galore, I was drooling! We ended up at Yo Sushi as I adore sushi and it was my first time having a proper sushi experience, it was delicious and fun and if you love sushi and never been then do it! Helen bought some sushi take out to take home for Rob as he hasn’t had sushi before and he was thrilled to bits, awe bless him 😂🍱
