Solar Farm


This month was very busy. My husband and I went to visit a few fascinating locations opened for Heritage Open Days. On top of that, I’ve started University last week with the first teaching session and a full day in which I had the chance of getting to know better my new colleagues and the […]

Kennington Primary School

Kennington Primary School

This is the last post on the places I’ve been to for Heritage Open Days this year. Kennington Primary School was one of the most unusual buildings I’ve seen. It was a bit far from us, but it was worth it. This classroom is called the “Bubble” and it was the first fully plastic building […]

Victorian Lecture Theatre

Liverpool Medical Institution

I went to the Liverpool Medical Institution many times since I moved here because they always seem to organize very interesting activities for events such as Light Night. This month I booked tickets for the tour they were offering with the Heritage Open Days event. They offer tours for groups at low prices, but that […]

Lighiting the candles on the cake for Festus' birthday

Festus’ 10th Birthday

Two years ago I wrote a post about Festus entitled “My boy turns 8: 8 things you didn’t know about him”. Today I’m sharing 10 more things about him. He is so precious to me and I was so happy to celebrate his birthday, singing happy birthday to him (a few times, he loves that, […]

Corridor in the infirmary

Alfred Waterhouse

A few days ago my husband and I went to an architecture themed tour. It was about the work of Alfred Waterhouse and organized by Victoria Gallery & Museum. We saw those buildings before, now part of Liverpool University and it was lovely to learn more about them. Waterhouse was born in Liverpool and he […]

New Inn Mill

New Inn Mill

My husband and I went to the New Inn Mill for Heritage Open Days. This year I was very careful and I’ve booked tickets way in advance (from 1st August). It was a really good thing, as we were told all the tours were fully booked by the middle of last month. Today the mill […]

Sea Lion

Knowsley Safari Park – September

My husband and I bought a membership at Knowsley Safari Park, and so I thought it would be nice to share pictures from there every month, to see how the weather changes and how the animals change with it. After this short introductory post, the others will more likely be “pictures only” kind of posts. […]

High Park Reservoir

High Park Reservoir

These days we are visiting lots of places with Heritage Open Days and the first one we’ve been to was the High Park Reservoir. We tried to visit it before, but it was so popular that we didn’t manage to get in, despite them allowing up to 60 people per tour. This time we arrived […]

How Many Cosmetics Do I Need

How Many Cosmetics Do I Need

I didn’t add this post in my blogging schedule until after I got these very cute plastic jars and filled all of them. Then I wasn’t sure if I should name my post How Many Cosmetics Do I Need or something else. It all comes down to what one considers as a need. There are […]
