Time for a posting break….

Have a break Travel with Leighton Literature English travel blogger.

“The time has come the walrus said, to think of other things”. Non-posting things.  No matter how hard I try to get on top of my gargantuan to-do list I just cannot seem to push this little blog of mine far enough down The Yellow Brick Road. It’s been over three months since I departed […]

Visit Sefton Park Liverpool.

May 2019. It was another sunny day in Liverpool, so Steppers and I knew we had to take full advantage with a visit to the city’s historical and much-loved Sefton Park.
