Onwards to the centre of Liverpool and a ferry across the Mersey is a must. We parked in the Albert Dock which I recognised as soon as I saw it. It's where the weather man used to hop from Ireland to England on the floating UK map on ITV. We legged it to the ferry as we only had 5 mins until departure. £10 for the 50 minute round trip. We heard the song, saw the Liver Building and listened to commentary as we went from Peir Head to Seacombe and back again.
A quick pic with The Beatles statue and Titanic memorial to the engine workers who kept the pumps going to save others. Then we were on the road home. It was amazing to see Wendy and Roger, our only wish was we could follow them to Iceland.

The end of the walk chokes you. On a yellow star, you write the name of someone who has passed away, and put it on a tree in the fairy light memorial garden. It brings a tear to the eye.
In fact, the end of the 10km came as a complete surprise. Before we knew it, we finished and got our soup and role to finish. We raised almost £300 for the Hospice and will return next year.

Ali really treated me for my birthday. We started by going to see Matilda in the West End and oh gosh it was amazing. We had fabulous seats in the stalls next to the aisle that the children and adults in the show used a lot, so we really felt part of the performance. The set was amazing, the cast amazing, everything was amazing. I loved it.
After the show off we went to Chelsea to a location used in the programme Made in Chelsea. I've wanted to visit Bluebird for a long time. We started with mocktails at the bar and it was the most delicious mocktail I've ever tasted. I do love it when you don't even carry your drinks to the table and someone collects it on a tray. He he.
The food was devine and the Tonka bean crème brulee was out of this world. A fabulous day feeling very very special.

Mid week I had an email saying that we have been successful in getting tickets for the Great British Bake Off Extra Slice to be in the audience. It as amazing to watch the filming of a show with a live audience. I was amazed that everything was one take, no practicing and retakes. Unfortunately my owl bread wasn't selected for 'show us your bakes' but we loved the day.
