Home Away From Home....Candy!
Before I get to the photo, let me suggest this nice day out from Coventry by train. In just 30 minutes you can be in Birmingham (sometimes referred to as England's second city. It is a big place.) The train takes you past Birmingham International Airport and across pretty countryside before arriving in the City Centre. A comfortable walk and you are in Bullring Shopping Centre where you will find fabulous stores and best of all Selfridges, a huge department store. And what does Selfridges sell? LOTS and LOTS of American Candy. It isn't cheap but a lot cheaper than an airfare to our nearest USA store. There is plenty of selection but my favourites are here - I think I will have a Baby Ruth or two or three :). Gradually, American treats are finding their way to the UK. I am happy.
Did you watch the Academy Awards? How exceptionally nice that I just happened to wake up at 1.30 am, slid out of bed quietly and put the 'telly' on downstairs. I am happy with most of the results and so glad we saw many of the movies. I was back in bed at 5 am and got up a tad later than normal. If you watched the show, hope you enjoyed it too!
So that is what's happening here, check out Our World Tuesday to see more photos from other Cities.
Tomorrow it is back outside in the cold, cold, cold!
