Gas Street

Not only do we have two beaches in the centre of Birmingham - we also have a jungle! Well, a gorilla anyway.

There are lots and lots of boats about at the moment with people heading off towards Wolverhampton and the IWA Festival.

Old friends are passing by so we have been catching up with the news and gossip.

The first of the new moorers arrived on Thursday and their daughter and boyfriend are going to live on the boat - so that has brought the age level down with a bump.

My bus pass arrived on Friday and has been used!!! We went for a celebration lunch on Saturday with Caroline in the Jewellery Quarter. Caroline now lives half way down Farmers Bridge Locks so we can walk down that way to get to their flat.

This is the welcome card I made for them using a photograph of boats in the basin which was matted onto silver, red and yellow card and a yellow ribbon. I printed the sentiment and matted that onto silver and red card.
