Bring on Spring

I need Spring! I need leaves on the trees! But at least I have the lovely flowers on my amaryllis bulb (pictured). Also I bought tulips, which I love most of the spring flowers. And my venus flytrap is returning to life.

Love the Liverbird.

Picture shows Liver bird on Liverpool's fabulous Liver Building. Among many awesome Edwardian/Deco buildings in the city. Also recommended: Pre-Raphaelites in Walker Art Gallery, Duckmarine amphibious tours, cocktails in Malmaison Hotel, 'Paddy's Wigwam' cathedral and Pop Boutique vintage. A great place to visit!

Pink Lady

No, not like in Grease! Another in my series of interestingly dressed people. This lady sported a pink sheepskin coat, brown angora hat and little ankle boots. Her hair was a bright dyed red, set in roller-y curls.

Super Sushi

I went to Yo Sushi! and discovered I really, really like sushi. I like it with lots of ginger and wasabi (ooch). It can join the ranks of my many other fave nibbly foods (mezze, cheeseboard, mexican dips etc). I'm not sure if it's because I'm indecisive but I like to have a lot of different foods on the table.

Girls in Soul

This is where I come across as a grumpy old lady! My two grumps being; Soul, a bar converted from an old church and The Way Young People Dress These Days. While it is good to find new uses for unused buildings, part of me feels uncomfortable to see these barely clad girls tottering past the stained glass windows towards a giant bar. I am an atheist, but somehow it still feels wrong. Also, how do they walk in these high, high shoes?
