A Brum Weekend

The weekend started well with a Flying Start 2 unofficial reunion dinner at ours.  Lex made a fantastic apple pie which finished our meal off nicely.  Lovely to catch up with everyone.

Saturday, Ed and I cycled over to Hockley for the Flyover Show headed up by the inspiring Soweto Kinch.  It really was under a flyover, as you can see.  Good vibe and an eclectic mix of music – from hip-hop to verging-on-classical type jazz glockenspiel!

Today we headed over to catch the last hour of Stan’s Cafe’s 24 Hour Scalextric.  Impressive commentary from James and Craig, who kept it up for the full 24 hours, and were still keeping the crowd entertained with their sometimes hilarious free-associating right up to the final minute.
