Swapping the Dordogne River for the Mersey!

It was our sons Birthday last Monday so a trip to Liverpool was planned to correspond with his celebrations.  It felt like years since we had seen him when in fact it has only been since January.  We Skype every week or more and phone and text everyday but it is not the same has holding him in your arms for a hug or two.  I know… I’m a big softy.

DSCN1522Côte Bistro in the centre of Liverpool was by far the best restaurant we went too. Could not praise the service and the food enough. Needless to say we sat inside.

Needless to say a brilliant time, the shops oh my goodness and they do not close at twelve! After a good stock up on essentials for France it was time to return to the Perigord.

Thank you so very much Adam for putting up with your old mum for a few days. You are loved lots and lots.
