Last week I went to Liverpool for a day. It’s not very far from where I live but access is complicated by the Mersey Estuary getting in the way! Friend K and I went by train which was quick and efficient. Oh and ALL DAY parking was 80p. This must be the cheapest parking anywhere!

We called in at Liverpool Central Library which was amazing. It feels as if all the knowledge in the World is there. An exaggeration I know but it is a temple to books and information. The building is a blend of modern architecture at its best and a traditional building containing old and valuable books and documents.


We didn’t have very long to explore as we were on a fabric hunting mission. I will certainly return to this wonderful place and spend much more time absorbing the atmosphere and even reading the books!

If ever I leave Hubs ( which isn’t on the agenda!) I will be found in this lovely library. There is a coffee shop for food and drinks. There are cozy chairs for curling up and reading in. There are computers for surfing the web and it is peaceful and quiet. Well it is a library!


Vintage Railway Memorabilia


On my recent trip on the steam train at Llangollen I couldn’t help but be impressed with their random collection of Vintage Memorabilia. I especially liked the collections of vintage suitcases.


There were lots of vintage signs.


I saw highly collectable “posters”( I can’t wait to visit Cornwall again!) Finally, I just had to add this one, cheekily displayed by the gents loo!image
