I got out in the garden while the weather was warm and Mandy was out sorting the banking and bills and stocking up on the provisions. I got the hedge clippers out and used these to get the stalks trimmed off all around the back borders and hacked back the climbers which go wild, the birds will appreciate a bit of spare material for nest building, there were pairs mating last weekend. I did the awful deed and committed myself to a path I'll probably regret with the solicitor up in Scotland, hopefully we'll more or less be able to ignore the rest of it and get on with our lives. I've deleted the next paragraph but you can take it from us that Scotland won't be featuring so much in future. We abandoned our trip to the Orkneys and Outer Hebrides which we had sketched i and will instead spend the time going over to cover Northern Ireland, I really like the trucks in Belfast and I need to catch up on the buses as well. Hopefully we'll be at a couple of rallies around Ireland this year.
Herewith some of the photos I took in Liverpool, nothing startling like Manchester last weekend but there are masses of bus fans in Merseyside and all those museums, whole countries cannot match either Manchester or Merseyside's collections of vehicles. Anyway I'll be back up and ediing in a minute and probably get some clips on Youtube for this evening, please click on an advert or two each time you visit which helps us keep up the momentum on our travels talking of which I did quite a lot more on the 2016 trip to China and North Korea.
