"Hear the sound of a tugboat on the river has a music of its own
the Goodison choir an' the Anfield army who never walk alone
then the sun comes out an' the Liver Bird stands up to stretch his wings
an' the music starts in a million hearts and that's when Liverpool sings"
Although my brother and myself, were brought up in London (a few streets away from where I live now) when my parents wanted to sell up and leave London they decided to go and live in my granddad's old house in Liverpool. My brother not having a job at the time decided to go with them and though he was dubious at first he really loves it.
My parent's house is in Woolton Village, it is really not what people expect when you talk about Liverpool, most people expect only back to back claustrophobic terraced houses (of Bread fame), yes these do exist but much of Liverpool is full of large parks and wonderfully open spaces.
'Maltese Falcon', I wish I lived closer!
My favourite by far is 'The Perfect Christmas Jumper' it has a wonderful 1940s feel with the puffed sleeves and a gorgeous intarsia reindeer pattern. I have to confess that I have already bought all the wool I will need to make it up and hope to be starting it soon (so it should be ready in time for Christmas.) There's just a small matter of finishing all the other knitting projects I have on the go at the moment!!
I had better go, as I'm off camping in Norfolk this weekend and I am supposed to be packing. I do hope it stops raining!
