#365daysofbiking Light work:
December 10th – Christmas means it’s time for the annual Christmas light inadequacy moaning game.
They’re never enough. Not Christmassy enough. Where’s the tree? and other festive traditions.
In reality, we haven’t had a tree in Brownhills for years, and actually, I think this year’s lights – which appear to be new – look pretty nice.
I think it’s coming on Christmas, folks.
#365daysofbiking First Christmas:
December 8th – Busy with stuff for work, and moving this journal to a better, more secure host; but on a quick spin around a darkened town I noticed many of the residents of the new houses alone Silver Street and The Moorings now had Christmas lights up.
It must be a great feeling to light up your new home for the first Christmas there.
I welcome you all to Brownhills. Merry Christmas!
#365daysofbiking Canal dreams:
December 7th – After a long day at work carrying out boring tasks, I left collecting a pal on the way. We popped in passing to Walsall’s Town Wharf, as the Arboretum I was aiming for actually had an event ongoing.
Town Wharf and the waterside here are gorgeous at night. Finally reaching potential after near enough two decades, this place has taken a long, long time for regeneration to happen, but it looks wonderful in the shadow of Walsall’s remarkable New Art Gallery.
Sadly, the state of retail being what it is, the centre of Walsall only 100 or so yards away, remains depressed.
But here at leat, developer dreams seem to be coming to fruition.
