WHEN I told Elsie I was taking her to Liverpool for the day, she was very excited.
She thought that the city would be full of ‘pools’ and that she’d be spending the day in her swimsuit (well it kind of makes sense I guess!), and although I had to point out to her that this wasn’t quite the case, thankfully it didn’t dampen her enthusiasm!
We did find water though, at the incredible Albert Dock, and ice cream (!) so she was more than a happy chappy.
I don’t really know Liverpool very well.
But as a Great Mancunian originally (I think that’s a term) I am a HUGE fan of Northern cities. There’s just something about the grit, humour, style and ‘make the most out of life’ attitude that I adore and feel at home with, when I’m oop North.
And just like Manchester, Liverpool has all of this in spades.
