Croxteth Hall

Yesterday we went to Croxteth Hall. It was lovely. We both enjoyed the Hall, the walled gardens and the farm. The Hall is beautiful. The history of the Earls of Sefton is interesting, from the first Earl receiving the title in 1771 to the last one, the 7th, who died in 1972. We saw the […]

Old docks, Liverpool

We’ve been to Old docks. The tour was amazing! We’ve learned so many things about Liverpool and its crucial importance in the World’s commerce and development. The docks are situated underneath L1. So, under the restaurants, hotels and great shops we were able to see a small part of such an important historic place. The […]

Mother’s Day

I am a rottweiler mum, so hubby surprised me with the greatest gift: A close-up with the writing, so you can see it better. I really love this T-shirt. On the back of the T-shirt there is a picture of my boy. Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing. The cupcakes aren’t very red, but […]

Knowsley safari park

Yesterday we went to Knowsley safari park. It was AMAZING!!!! The park was opened in 1970 by the Earl of Derby. It was the first in north of England. Many of the animals from the park are bred here, like elephants, lions, rhino, baboons, deers and the smaller animals too. Prepare for a long post […]

Pancake day

I wrapped the mushrooms in the crepes and I baked them for a few minutes, until the cedar has melted. Yummy!! We […]

Chinese new year

This year we went to the celebrations held for the Chinese new year. I’m sorry last year we’ve missed them, as it was so interesting. In Chinatown there was an outdoor market with food and different traditional items. I loved the dragon slippers and the stuffed snakes. Hubby didn’t take many pictures because it was […]

Banking

In Romania I was a manager and hubby had his own company, so we had the “pleasure” of handling both personal and business bank accounts in different banks. I always had to have a big handbag when I was going to the bank, because I had to carry with me the stamps, a letter of […]

Moving together

Sunday we had the fair I wanted to talk about it, but 8 years ago we moved together. Here is our 7 year anniversary and the story, so I wouldn’t have to tell it again. Yesterday morning was cloudy, so we thought we’ll have to postpone going to Liverpool. But after 12, the sun came […]
