Stayed in all day
Went up to a party in Bingley
It was crap
We all went back to Sam's for drink
Loads stayed over
At Woolpack all 'avo
Took Afghan for a long walk
Went to the Wagon & Horses for drink
We all dossed around the village green and had chips
well I am back home after a couple of days spent with my Mum on the glorious NW coast of England. I love going home and smelling the sea air albeit it does zonk me out. It is so true what they say about a change of air .. believe me! (mm must get it together and look at how much a property will cost me there ??)
On Saturday we went to the sea front at Southport. It was a beautiful clear day and you could see Blackpool .. beautiful sky
Today we went to Liverpool, visited the new landing stages on the Mersey, Sefton Park where we went as small kids, and Crosby beach to see Gormleys sculptures (the tide was in so we only saw a head)
Yesterday morning I walked the pup around the village where I grew up. Passing houses were my best friends used to lived .. 'J' would be mortified at number 25 the current owners have left it go to rack and ruin...Number 43 'L's' house, number 67 were Mrs C lived has new PVC windows and looks really posh...number 71 with its own private drive where we were threatened if we kicked the stones up the drive (hey we were kids and we kicked).
Number 85 was my home from the age of 3.. it has new PVC windows that my brother put in after he bought it from my mother 25 years ago.. it still looks how I remember it.. Across the road the 'new houses' that were built in the 70s (there were trees and railway sidings there before the houses.. I know coz we used to play in the train carriages and trees) they look so established now 30 years on.. my either side next door neighbours were Mrs G & Mr & Mrs B (I only know Mr & Mrs first names (as we would call them Aunty M & Uncle B) ... I still don't know Mrs G's name!! My next doors kids called me 'aunty' and still do even though the youngest are 19)
The village has changed a lot .. the 'Outer Limits' shop is now a laundrette, Tesco is a restaurant but the chocolate Box' is still a newsagents that sells kiddy sweets and cheap toys ... superb I wil be adding more photos of my Easter break on Flickr later ... so you can click on the Flickr image in my side bar to view or if you are too lazy click here.... it certainly isn't 'grim up North' ;-)
thinking of running a competition as I have bars of Southport Rock to give away ... haven't decided on the game yet??
