I forgot how much I love November, the crunch when walking on fallen leaves, christmas decorations starting to be put up, my birthday (which we won't talk about - as I will no longer be a teenager) and bonfire night.
Birmingham couldn't get it more right. A funfair and fireworks!
Two pairs of tights under my jeans, fluffy socks, animal mittens, a head band and a thick wooly scarf and my toes and nose still froze, but it was so worth it. And I have a little tip for you - tumble dry an old long sleeve top before you go out and put it on underneath your clothes, it'll keep you warm for hours.
I did feel like a child again, I knew I couldn't run from ride to ride so I just walked around in my own little world staring at the big lights. We came early to have a go on some of the rides.
Of course no funfair is complete without candyfloss
Watched a few people win teddies in those verging on impossible games, however, there were no goldfish to be won otherwise my room would currently be an aquarium!
The one place where I can be an awful driver and not be criticised for it...
Nobody messes with me on the road :-)
My favourite bar girl Soph :) hard at work
And time for the fireworks, they were amazing. I forgot how much I loved them. We stood huddled in a huge group of people, as the little rockets lit up the sky. I was so dazed for most of it so excuse the bad photos.
