Birmingham, UK – Cadbury Factory

As promised – my second post & this weeks travel lane memory!!!

While we were in Birmingham, we decided to visit the Cadbury Factory… It was huge & smelling of super sweetness & filled with lots & lots & lots of chocolate!!! 😀

Normally I am not a sweet tooth – I’d much rather eat a packet of crisps – but I do enjoy chocolate when the craving hits!!! On this day we were showered with plenty… My favourites (which is not available in South Africa) was the buttons!!! We ate heaps of those!!! 😀

I think it would be safe to say that I gained a couple of kilo’s while we were there!!! 🙂 **

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!! 🙂 **
