Around Lark Lane

Thought I’d be working today but, to my own surprise I got something finished a day earlier than expected, so? It’s Friday, the sky is blue, let’s go! Not a particularly long Friday Walk in terms of miles this one, but it covers nearly 40 years of my life. The terraced house in Wavertree where […]
