New places, new faces, new fun as I head for bed #72!

Posted on September 30, 2018 by Sioux under Green Door

  The holiday with Paul was over and as he headed back to SA, I headed to a new client, about an hour’s train ride from London.   A new client meant fun exploring new surroundings!   I had a lovely room upstairs, with a fab view across the garden; a very interesting garden that […]

Sights and sounds of the big city #2 – the wheels on the bus go round & round!

Posted on September 26, 2018 by Sioux under General

  Due to our limited time in London, I had prebooked a hop on hop off bus tour to enable us to get about quickly. With the weather as it was, I was glad of the bus ride! Once we had finished breakfast, we made our way to Buckingham Palace knowing that come rain or […]

Sights and sounds of the big city #1 – a visit to London, but not the queen!

Posted on September 22, 2018 by Sioux under General

  The train journey from Liverpool to London was quiet and relaxing, with a short walk to the hotel from the station. It was Paul’s birthday and I had planned a trip up the Shard, in the hope of catching a sunset. However, this is England – sunsets are never guaranteed! Once we had checked in […]

Hobnobbing in the city and bed #71 for me!

Posted on September 18, 2018 by Sioux under Green Door

  After Liverpool, we took a whirlwind trip around London  before Paul headed home to SA and I went back to work.   In lieu of his birthday, I booked us into a rather larney hotel, literally around the corner from Buckingham Palace!   I tried to book a date for sundowners with the queen […]

Seeing the City of Culture with new eyes – the final – view from uphigh!

Posted on September 14, 2018 by Sioux under General

  I had managed to obtain a ticket to a football game at Anfield, so left my camera at home and walked around the city with Paul. Mathew Street and The Cavern Club was a must before taking him up the radio city tower to get a complete view of the city from up high.  […]

Seeing the City of Culture with new eyes #3 – walkabout.

Posted on September 10, 2018 by Sioux under General

  Day 3 saw us up early again and after a small breakfast we headed to the city, the museums and the Anglican Cathedral, walking first to the huge Chinese gate. It was pouring with rain so there weren’t many photos taken and we headed into the dry interior of the cathedral. A massive Liverbird […]

Seeing the City of Culture with new eyes #2 – day tripping #2 – Chester

Posted on September 5, 2018 by Sioux under General

  Once in Chester, we walked from the station through the quaint city to the Chester cathedral. Dating from between 1093 and the early 16th century, it as with many English cathedrals has been modified many times since being built. However with the city of Chester having been an important Roman stronghold, the site itself may […]

Seeing the City of Culture with new eyes #2 – day tripping #1 – Port Sunlight.

Posted on September 1, 2018 by Sioux under General

  Up early to make the most of the long days, I took Paul to Port Sunlight, the home of ‘Sunlight soap’. We went into the Lady Lever Art Gallery & Museum, which I hadn’t done before, and was very glad of doing it this time round! A fascinating place as well as being a […]
