Sunday

Lost in Liverpool

On Monday I packed a bag, some music for the road, and a bag of fruit rocks. Mother came to my door and we started our road trip to Liverpool. It was time for my not-so-little-brother, Samuel, to Graduate! So Samuel and his pretty girlfriend Jessica-Rose settled in the back with their sleepy eyes and reading books whilst Mother and I listened to some very old 'mixed tapes'- but in CD form.
Five or so hours later, we dropped the young ones off at their friend's house and we drove twenty minutes down the road to our beautiful home for the next few days. With a name like 'The Farm' you really could not go wrong, and we really didn't! It was a tearoom and farm shop by day and a family home by night. It is situated in the small village of Burscough, near Ormskirk and was just perfect.
It was so very late by the time we arrived and settled in and our tummies were in need of some food. So we hopped back in the car for a little explore. We came across a lovely little bar in Ormskirk called The Fat Olive, which just so happens to be where Samuel used to work back in Spring before completing University. So after we were filled with steak and chips and mint chocolate cheesecake, we headed back to bed with a cup of tea and our books.
The Farm was so peaceful, we could hear the little woodland critters at nighttime and the cockerels in the morning but the road was so quiet. This really was just what I needed right now. My little brain has been filled with all sorts of things and it has been quite stressful lately. Spending time with Mother and having chats with her was just so lovely. The moment I got back, I missed her.

I was delighted to hear that breakfast was included. One morning I had a full English fry up- which I have not had in years! With toast and marmalade, tea and orange juice too. One morning I settled for tasty poached eggs on toast. I felt positively spoilt.
Without making this post too picture-heavy I chose to split it up a bit. So more to come soon.

  9. oh that looks so peaceful and lovely.

    I remember the days of making mix CDs. I also put so much effort into selecting the songs (to make the most of the 72 minutes) and then making sure that the songs worked into each other.
    Much more difficult than making a playlist.
