I can’t wait to try new recipes for Halloween.
This weekend was the 5th annual event Birkenhead Park Festival of Transport. We saw a lot of interesting things, like horse vaulting with a horse from Pony Sanctuary, dog training, owls, model boats, stalls with jewellery, cookies, vintage cars, historic military vehicles, fire trucks and many other things.
Let me present you our neighbor. It appears uninvited but we like him very much and he is always welcome.
He never accepts something to eat and I tried to persuade him with all kinds of food, even special food for him. He talks endlessly. Yesterday he stood with me in the kitchen while I was cooking lasagne and talked a lot. In the end I think he was just blabbing.
Festus likes him too, even if they didn’t have the chance to talk. They admire themselves from a distance and that’s all. Luckily they didn’t meet when Festus was in the back yard with his dad, taking a bath.
Yesterday was my name day, we celebrated with a chocolate cheesecake, a special dinner and a lovely walk. We visited Wirral Transport Museum as well. We had the opportunity to take a ride in the tram 20, from 1901.
Leasowe Lighthouse, the first brick built lighthouse in UK. It’s here, on the north coast of Wirral, to the Irish sea.
It was build in 1763 by the Mersey Docks and Harbour Authority. The lighthouse is 101 ft tall and it’s the second oldest brick built lighthouse in Europe. It has a nice history, one of the keepers was a woman, who took over the responsibility after her husband died. She received the same salary and she was one of the few women employed to do this job.
This weekend we had a tour of the New Ferry butterfly park, a urban natural reserve on the former site of a railway goods yard, coal yard and water softening plant. It was nice to see some butterflies, but due to the rainy summer there are a few.
