In Liverpool: One Sunday Morning

Sunday morning always seems like such a special time to me. An in-between sort of time with nothing in particular to do, so you can do anything. No one’s likely to ring or email and there’s definitely nothing in my diary, so I begin the day by enthusiastically doing nothing at all. I’m good at […]

A Sunday Circular Stroll

There will be a glorious sunset later on. But today’s follow up to Saturday’s Smithdown Stroll starts on an ordinary, grey sort of day. One of my favourite kind.

Buying records and Playing in the Street

I quite like a bit of disruption, changes the look of the place for a while. Next stop, something Sarah had told me about earlier. People are obviously getting desperately hungry […]
