Birmingham, UK – Airport

Last night we had no electricity – 😦 !!! It was horrible… do you realise that everything that you keep yourself busy with in the evening involves electricity?? – We could not make dinner, could not heat the house (it was freaken freezing!!!!!), could not drink coffee, could not do our usual lazing in front of the tele & blogging etc… Did I mention that we were the only house on the block without electricity?? Yes, we did pay the bill 😉 …

This morning when we woke up – still no electricity… It totally sucked!!! 😦 During the day they fixed it, but they could give us no explanation to what happened or why!!! Specialists?? Really??

Anyway – I’m ranting… & all I really want to do is share my travel lane memory for the week!!! 😀

This was the glimpse of Birmingham that we got way back in 2005!!! It was a VERY cold day, but we were all excited for the adventure that lay ahead!! (for those of you who are new here, we worked on a turkey farm that holiday… hmmmm… where did your Christmas turkey come from that year??) 🙂

– – – Tilt-shift update – – – I have about five more photos in this “self-improving” project!!! Will share them with you soon!!! (I have a few more ideas for photos that I want to try and get before I start revealing my results!!) 🙂 Are you busy with your tilt-shift?? Share them with me on my facebook page!!! Would love to see your results!! 🙂 **

    That sucks about the electricity. Our house used to be all electrical, so no electricity was not good. I think photos like that are great, they conjure up all sorts of images, or dreams. 🙂

    Cool photo! One of the great things about being an all season camper is that it is little incovenience to me to have the electricity go off. I have a latern and candles for light, a campstove for cooking and coffee, and if it’s really cold, I put my sleeping bag in my bed and sleep as snug as a bug in a rug. The battery of my laptop only lasts a few hours, but if it dies, then I have time to catch up on my reading.

    How irritating and frustrating… Sorry my girl! I remember how excited you were to go work in the UK. 🙂 It now seems such a long time ago! 🙂 xxx

    My apartment in Boston used to drive me crazy since the heat would stop working on the coldest days/nights. All of us would huddle under every blanket that we owned. I feel your pain. And I hope it doesn’t happen again. But you might want to stock up on candles and start practicing telling ghost stories so you won’t sleep at all. Might as well have fun right 🙂
