Sheila

My Captured

Hi Elle, Please forgive me for this one, I am hoping that enough time has passed now for you to think it is cute too. August 2010 This takes me back to a time when I was able to take the whole summer holidays off with you and Evie. By August 2010 I had been driving for four years and ‘Sheila’ was still going strong. If you remember ‘Sheila` was my first car and.. Read More

My Captured Moment!

My Captured

28th May 2016   My Captured Moment was taken on Saturday evening when we attended The Lost Carnival. The week before we had discovered that the youngest had been having quite a distressing time at school. Obviously, I can not tell chapter and verse, it would not be fair on any of the parties, but suffice to say it seems Evie was at the receiving of end of some very unpleasant behaviour. Thankfully,..

Five On Friday……..The desperately clinging to Summer Edition!

I refuse to accept that Summer is over just like that! The weather forecast for the weekend isn’t too bad for this part of the world, oh please, lets  not give up hope! This week I have loved clinging on to summer………………….

My Captured Moment! #13

I love this picture of our two girls. To me, it sums up their personalities. The eldest is slight cautious, holding on to her sister, protecting her and feeling responsible. The youngest has no fear, is quietly confident and very inquisitive. I thought she would be afraid of the characters but no, she was captivated, which bode well for our trip to Disney a few weeks later. Have a lovely day!

Powis Castle!

Ah there is nothing quite like family time! Given that Ms Glade was still at home after helping out at The Party, we decided that we would make the most of Saturday and get out and about. I had recently seen a TV programme about Powis Castle and decided that it would make the perfect destination for a family adventure. So, Saturday morning saw us waving off our overnight guests, then hot footing it to the.. Read More

The Reader Cafe in Calderstones Park

Ordinarily, if we were venturing to a park in Liverpool, we would choose Sefton Park. Childhood memories and all that! However, over Easter we decided to break with tradition and try Calderstones Park. I wanted to go to visit a special project.     The Reader Cafe is attached to the Grade II listed, Calderstones Mansion, which is surrounded by beautiful parkland and gardens. It is run by The Reader Organisation, a charitable social.. Read More

Unexpected treasures of Liverpool’s seafaring history!

Recently, we took a different route when walking from the car to John Lewis in Liverpool City Centre. Just look at what we stumbled across! They were huge and just there in the middle of the pavement. The information to the side explained that they were the ornamental gateway located at the main entrance of the Liverpool Sailors’ home. John Lewis is now stood on the site that was once the home. It explains.. Read More
