Five On Friday!


It has definitely been a bit easier to find five happy things this week, I guess that happens when you see the sun at some point. One Like on Saturday morning as we walked Jack through the woods, it was a wondrous sight. I didn’t realise until I got home that the rays had been so strong until I looked at the pictures later. It was bitterly cold and we had sleet a.. Read More

An update and The three stags – Bebington!

Hello my lovelies! We have arrived back safely from Dubai. However,  it seems that I have been carrying a chest infection for a while without actually realising it. It has knocked me for six and I spent last week doing my best to stay upright. Anyway, a course of antibiotics has been prescribed and I am sure I am in the recovery phase. But hey, given my recent history, what do I know?!?!.. Read More

Street Food in Liverpool – Mowgli style!

I recently enjoyed a wonderful evening at Mowgli in Liverpool. As soon as we entered the restaurant, we felt the hipster vibe! The decor was so cool! We were greeted as soon as we walked through the door and promised a table within a few minutes. Mowgli has a no booking policy, so you do have to take a chance and be prepared to wait! We struck lucky and was shown to a.. Read More

Casa Italia – Liverpool!

Recently, the little Miss caught the bus from school and met me for dinner in Liverpool. Given that Italian food is her favourite, we decided to introduce her to Casa Italia. My first ‘proper’ job was in Liverpool City Centre and Casa Italia was always a favourite haunt of myself and my friends. However, we hadn’t been there for years and so were  interested to see whether it had changed because the ‘Casa’.. Read More

Hanover Street Social

I wrote on Saturday about having restaurant reservations with friends at somewhere I had been wanting to try for a while, it was here at Hanover Street Social. It is based in the centre of Liverpool City Centre. From the outside it looks very unassuming. Those three sets of windows constitute the outside view. When we arrived late on Saturday afternoon the restaurant was full and had a great atmosphere. We had to.. Read More

The Spice Garden

Happy Easter Monday! On April Fool’s day, himself had been in his job for 30 years! It’s quite unbelievable! He has been in the same job since he left school.     I suggested that it was a landmark that deserved to be marked and asked him what he would like to do. He opted for a curry which was great  because it just so happens that we have an award winning curry.. Read More

The Egg!

Apparently it is National Vegetarian week, so to celebrate I thought I would show you one of my favourite vegetarian places . The Egg cafe is in Liverpool City Centre, just off Bold Street. It is in the loft space of an old Victorian warehouse. Therefore, the journey up the stairs is not for the faint hearted! When you finally reach the skinny purple door, an airy space is revealed. The decor is.. Read More

Camp and Furnace!

On Friday, when the eldest popped home we decided to eat at Camp and Furnace, in Liverpool. Camp and Furnace is not so much a restaurant as an experience. On Friday nights a Food Slam is on offer! Let me try to explain;     Camp and Furnace is housed in an old warehouse on the outskirts of the city centre.     Food stalls are set up around the outside of the.. Read More

Ferry Across The Mersey………

There has been a “Ferry across the Mersey” since the middle ages – imagine that! In case you are wondering Ms Glade, that is a very long time before Gerry and The Pacemakers. In those days, I believe it was operated by monks. Anyway, fast forward to 1846 and a chap called Thomas Stanley owned the ferry then. He thought it would be a good idea to build a hotel in Eastham to accommodate.. Read More
