A Day Out With Tom

Thankfully the weather picked up today and turned into a perfect day for standing outside Wolverhampton's railway station waiting for Tom to meet us...

Hugs ensued when he turned up and after the greetings we we took a stroll about town...


Tom wanted to take us to a place called Patisserie Valerie...

Where we spent a good hour or so chatting and savouring the delights within...



Out and about in Wolverhampton...







Then a short walk over to Tom's place in a nearby towerblock...

where he proudly shows off the contents of a fridge that will be familiar to students from time immemorial...
The flat he shares with three other students (including an old pal of his from Whitley Bay) maybe somewhat spartan in the soft furnishing department but it's clean, dry, secure and above all, affordable.

After chatting a while we walked back the five or ten minutes into the centre for a bite to eat and a drink in one of Tom's local pub.

A couple of hours passed chatting and getting a sense that Tom is a very happy young man, engaged in his course work and full of enthusiasm about his new life away from Whitley Bay. I don't think you can ask for anything else really. Debbie and got the train back to Birmingham feeling relaxed and satisfied.
