today the post-holiday blues have caught up with me . i'm missing the sunshine . i'm missing the beaches . i'm missing australia ! it's been an odd kind of day today . not really warm . not really sunny . not really anything . and it feels a bit of a shame to end the weekend on a bit of a low . especially as yesterday was so different . warm . sunny . & . so much fun . yesterday i really didn't miss australia at all .
so why was yesterday so much fun i hear you ask . well quite simply because yesterday was all about the cocktails & cake . oh, & spotting some lovely local creative people over at the Spring Market .
the seasonal markets started last year . set up by The Bournville Waffle Co. who wanted to recreate the vibe you get at festivals but in the centre of birmingham . a lovely mixture of artists . vintage wares . & food stalls it seems to be growing with each market that takes place . add into the mix the Routemaster Bus Bar & the Cocktail Caravan, not to mention a gorgeous sunny day, & you have a lovely day out . there was a great buzz around the place, not to mention some amazing foodie smells from the likes of smoqued . the original patty men . & . pietanic . & . cakes to make you drool from cake doctor . bake . & . peel & stone .
there were also artists & designers . lovely individual pieces from very talented people .
. the cocktail caravan . & . the routemaster bus bar .
. rolling roses .
. tuckshop flowers .
. bake .
. the best saturday night takeaway . ever . from the cake doctor .
so looking back at such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon maybe it's only right that today should be a little quieter . with a little less cake .
and looking on the very bright side there are only 82 days to go until the Summer Market !
. have a sweet day .
