Okay so yes, I have stolen the title of an episode of Brum for this blog post. It felt only necessary since I was in Birmingham and wearing so much yellow and red. Had I been more prepared I'm sure I could have done some face paint or something to look even more like him. That wouldn't have been weird at all... Also didn't see any cats at all so the lost kitten really has no relevance, I suppose it could have been used as a metaphor for me being lost in the big city but I actually have a great sense of direction.



I'm not actually sure why we decided to go to Birmingham but we did and we had fun. Though half of my family are from there I've never exactly explored and had only been into the city once, which was as a teenager and was mostly just shopping. I had desperately wanted to go to the library of Birmingham since that first visit and lucky for me Finn also loves books and being around them so he was more than happy to go too. It is a beautiful library, I was entranced by the shelves of books the public don't actually have access too and equally distracted by messy shelves I wanted to tidy up. I also almost immediately made my way to the librarianship section where I did pick up a book and read for a bit whilst Finn was distracted by the vastness of the Philosophy section.

TOP - H&M
SHOES - CDG X CONVERSE

We also made sure to visit the art gallery. Partly because it is an art gallery and partly because it is where my mom spent her days skiving off lessons and I can totally see why. Aside from the fact that it was a busy Saturday the building is beautiful beyond any expectations I had, and the Pre-Raphaelite collection is incredible. I don't think I expected the gallery to be so big but it was lovely. Unfortunately, we didn't go and see The Coming Out exhibition, which we should have done because I'm sure we both would have liked it a lot.




I always have the best time with Finn because we are disgusting and in love but I really did have a great time exploring with him, even though he wouldn't spontaneously get piercings with me and is an almost constant embarrassment. Above is him pointing at some sort of ancient pottery saying 'this is meant to be a cat'.
