Saturday 16th October 2010


The bombed out church - more properly St Luke's - is a well-known Liverpool landmark but the inside is normally railed off.  It was open today (subject to signing a waiver against any claim) and so for the first time ever I saw the ruins from the inside.

I had to go into Birkenhead and took the opportunity to visist the ruins of the Priory.  This twelfth century building is the oldest on Merseyside.

My desktop computer has died so I am working on my laptop.

A Hornet paid us a visit today!

I picked the apples from the James Grieve today.  I should have done it a couple of weeks ago because there have been a lot of windfalls and they have been attacked by slugs, etc.

Another day at Jo's new office.  We went shopping - unsuccessfully - for a bell system in town and passed the old Lewis's Store.

This chest is one of my favourite pieces of our furniture.

I'm not sure what the collective noun for Superlambananas is but there were five of them in Liverpool city centre today.

Another trip around the Liverpool Biennial while ostensibly helping Jo pack up her office for the move tomorrow.  This sword, hanging in the Black E (the former Great George Street Church) is by Kris Martin.

Some days the most exciting thing in life is the pattern made in the washing up bowl!

Jo moves office on Sunday so she sent me up into the loft to find some empty boxes.  Was she serious?  Plenty of full boxes but not a lot of empty ones!   I hope your loft is tidier than this.

I spent a lot of the day reading the Guide to the Liverpool Biennial and sorting out some of yesterday's photos to prepare some pre-scheduled blog postings about them.
