Today, my DH and I went into Birmingham by bus and train to see the Strictly tour show and stay over in a hotel as its my birthday tomorrow.
It became a military operation! So much snow, ice and slippery surfaces as well as cold air. I also knew some walking, uphill as well as downhill and steps, would be involved.
I ended up wearing my allotment boots, trousers tucked into socks, scarf around mouth and nose etc. Birmingham has not gritted its steps or pavements and neither did the NIA, despite what they said on the local news.
We are now in the hotel and will eat here as it is just treacherous underfoot, but the menu looks good.
Anyway, ladies! Artems's pecs are something to be seen, a treasure to behold! Louis was just fantastic and did the one from Dirty Dancing and Fern has lost quite a lot of weight since the programme, she actually looked really good and was VERY funny.
