Besides eating naughty breakfasts and being a super proud older sister watching my not-so-little-brother graduating, my Liverpool trip was filled with homemade Cheshire ice creams at The Farm, art viewings, flowers and sunshine.
Eventhough our city trip was brief, we managed to pop into Topshop and Paperchase to purchase a few treats. The very last day, I ditched the young ones and dragged Mother to the Dockyards, not that she needed much persuasion! She was as excited as I was. Infact she snapped a lot more with her camera than I did!!
The Dockyards were so pretty, especially with the weather so summery and warm. Such a perfect setting and ideal place to have our second ice-cream of the day! British summery bunting line the docks with ice cream van after ice cream van and pretty carousels. Not mentioning the wonderful buildings and eateries.
After taking nearly a memory card full of pictures, we went to the Tate Gallery. I was more than amused about this as I so enjoy visiting the Tate Modern and Tate Britain on arty trips in London. There were lots of exciting pieces to see, strange, pretty and colourful. They even had a large cage with brightly coloured Macaws! Insane.
After I made a compulsory purchase in the gift shop (managing to restrain myself and only buying a Neon Pink Pencil!) and wanting to buy a pile of books and a selection of postcards, we strolled along the yard and met up with the two graduates for Tea and a take-away Burrito for the long journey home.
If you ever happen to go up to Liverpool for a little look around and fancy a snack, I recommend popping into Bar Burrito for a tasty Mexican delight. You can pick the ingredients and make it as hot or mild as you wish and is extremely worth it. Made the journey home seem more enjoyable. That and my mix-tapes to accompany the feast. We also purchased a well-needed icy cold Frappuchino for the heat was near unbearable!
