You're the Best and Liverpool History

Hello ... Thanks for popping in
My Aunt is doing well ... I got to speak to her on the phone this morning and she is walking about and in no pain so as you can imagine I am thrilled!
She recently had the all clear from her oncologist too ... 5 years cancer free ... She's one amazing lady!

In just over a weeks' time ... my great nephew Ross will be celebrating his 11th Birthday ... I really don't know where the time goes ... And you all know how much I love this little guy
Here's a card I made for him

Using those lovely MME papers "Be Amazing" 
which is just what he is

I made the balloon using my Cameo and also cut out the numbers
I also used the PTI 'Birthday' die and the stamp ... 'you're the best' was from a set sent to me by my sweet friend Linda Robinson

Last night we went to a local History talk which included dining at the Marc Pierre White restaurant in Liverpool

The food was delicious ... albeit minimal Lol! And the talk was interesting ... We have such an amazing history ... Did you know that we once had a huge castle here?

Castle Street is now the home of the Town Hall but the original moat is still underground  - and like London we too had a "Tower" (of Liverpool) ... Dirty dungeons which are still under the building that now stands in it's place ... Tower Buildings - an office block.
When the excavations began for Tower Buildings around 1856 ... they discovered an oubliette with a perfectly mummified body of a Roundhead soldier...
For many years I worked in the city and never knew what was under my feet ... which was probably just as well!

Have a lovely day
