You can read what A Brummie Home and Abroad got up to in the first part of August here!
20/8/2016 & 21/8/2016: It’s an unusually quiet weekend for me; Mr Fletche however is out and about on an IgersBirmingham summer social event at The Button Factory. They’ve booked out the upstairs space, and from the occasional odd Instagram Story posted, I can tell there’s lots of drinking going on. Hence Mr Fletche missing the last train (by about two hours) and pleading with me for a lift sometime early Sunday morning. Mr Fletche promises to make it up to me on Sunday, and we head out late afternoon for a Sunday roast.
After our Harborne disappointment in May, we head instead to Moseley. I drive as Mr Fletche still thinks he has a considerable amount of last night’s alcohol in his system. Only to find The Fighting Cocks stops serving its Sunday roast at 6pm. It is 6:05pm. I know the Dark Horse does a Sunday roast, so we retrace our steps. They stop serving their Sunday roast at 5pm. Grrrr. How hard is it to get a Sunday roast after 6pm? At this point we just settle for Dark Horse’s regular menu – yummy as ever but not a Yorkshire pudding or roast potato in sight.
After a well-deserved alcohol free Saturday night, we head back into town on Bank Holiday Sunday. Mr Fletche wants to capture some pictures around Eastside, so we head that way. I try out the variously shaped benches at the front of Millennium Point.
What can A Brummie Home and Abroad get up to in September? There’s Moseley Folk Festival, a week in Tenerife, a birthday to celebrate – oooh, and a new job too!
I’m Emmalene, a 40 something with a passion for travel, theatre, food, drink and the occasional accidental hike! I’m a born-and-bred Birmingham native so expect lots of Brum content on here too…
