The City of 1001 Trades!

As Birmingham was formerly known. For the last 2 days I have been confined to barracks nursing a very sore foot so Dot has been out and about with Derek and Carrie visiting the Jewellery Quarter, Waterstone Lane Cemetery and the markets. I had found a local doctor and acquired a prescription painkiller but the side effects were nearly as bad as the sore foot so today has been spent resting and snoozing until the side effects subsided.

More jewellers in one place than you could ever imagine.Birmingham 114 Footpath plaque, Jewellery Quarter Birmingham.Birmingham 118 Birmingham's Brummie the Bull in the Bullring.  Would you believe that despite it being the symbol of Birmingham I was unable to find a gold charm to remember Birmingham.
