On my second Saturday here, Kirsten, from ROAD studios, kindly took me to the Liverpool Food and Drink Festival in Sefton Park . We had a really good natter , with some lovely nibbles on the way. The place was thronged with people having a good time in the September sunshine. What a lovely day. Kirsten was lovely , easy company.
That Sunday, a friend from Birmingham , Ruth , came up. I took her around Liverpool on one day and the next, we went to Birmingham and she did likewise for me there. I lived there in the late 80’s and was interested to see where all the arts groups and studios were now. Unfortunately between it being a Monday and also installation day , most of the exhibitions were closed. Bad day to visit Brum but I did catch up with a few friend that evening and had a laugh. I was also pleasantly reminded of that gentle lilting, kindly Brummie accent.
How dare I talk of another city!
