Simple Pleasures

Two Sundays ago we were racing into Birmingham to see the Lost in Lace exhibition that I spoke about in my last post. Unfortunately we didn’t make it in time and had to see that the following weekend because we realised it had been far too long since breakfast and we needed somewhere to eat. Out came the iphones and we thought we would give Yo Sushi (we are addicted at the moment!) a go in Brindley Place as we had never been there before.

Wow, what a space! Its wonderful. So much of interest, we got their late in the day so didn’t have the time to appreciate all of what it has to offer, we are going back sometime soon. There were many restaurants, art galleries,


canals,

fountains

and small boys paddling at the end of October.

Interesting architecture,

in the shape of a very interesting cable pattern.

A happy hubby full of sushi,

and a contented Mandycharlie debuting her latest hand knitted hat,

made from a pattern called Simple Pleasures Hat written by Purl Soho in Berroco Ultra Alpaca in purple. Its very cosy, yet soft and light, perfect for the autumn.

Brindley Place has such a great vibe, it was the tiniest of city breaks but we came back home completely refreshed and eagerly planning more adventures to come in this wonderful space.
