Mother’s Day with Moonpig

Last week I was invited to the Mother’s Day with Moonpig event in Manchester*. Now that Valentine’s Day passed, I think is only appropriate to talk about Mother’s Day. Have a look on their website for more details about cards, gifts, and flowers. I arrived at the lovely venue they picked up in Manchester, got […]

Stockport Air Raid Shelters. Inside the tunnels

Stockport Air Raid Shelters

I visited the Stockport air raid shelters earlier this month and it was so interesting learning about them and seeing, again, how hard must have been during WWII at the time of the German blitz.

Knowsley Safari Park, February

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the city is a special exhibition at Sudley House, a lovely small museum in Liverpool. I visit Sudley House regularly as their special exhibitions are usually fascinating. In 2017 I saw the exhibitions the 1930s and Transformation, and in 2018 I went to see Fashion from the 1950s, and Costume Drama […]
