I too loved the Bluecoat Chambers and Bold Street and used to live off Lark Lane in a flat overlooking Sefton Park with geraniums on the kitchen window sill. Love your blog by the way and your writing especially x

I have never seen that part of the world but I’m sure I saw what you saw.

  3. Anne’s House of Dreams and Rilla are two of my utmost forever favourites. I have two complete sets of the Anne books ( greedy I know, but I found myself in Australia for a year and simply needed to read them again). Enjoy them! I just finished Bath time and Nursery Rhymes by Pam Weaver on my kindle.
