Leaving Stirchley

So, in 7 days, I will be moving out of Stirchley. I've decided to move to Moseley because it's a part of town with a lot more going on (6 pubs! A farmers and arts market! A folk fest!)

And just my luck, as I plan to leave, Stirchley starts doing stuff. Today was the second Stirchley Market, which I went to. While there I purchased this rather beautiful cupcake:

Frost and Snow Cupcake

Which is a lemon & earl grey cupcake by Frost and Snow Bakery. It was delicious, lovely light sponge, perfect for a pre swimming snack.

While there I also found out about a cycling cooperative who are going to help me get on the road on two wheels. I was tempted by a pizza fired on site by Loaf, but decided the cupcake was enough.

I'd recommend the market if you're passing through, it was lovely.

Mum and Dad came up to see me yesterday, bringing a tub of blackberries from their garden.

Finding myself at a loose end at 8 this evening, I decided to make blackberry crumble muffins:

And had far too much crumble tpping, with spare blackberries, so 4 cute little crumbles happened too:

Now off to taste test them, though my sources say the muffins are good!
