a Liverpool day out

On Saturday me and the boyfriend had a very rare day off together, so decided to go to the new Museum of Liverpool for a looksie around as neither of us had been yet. Liverpool is my closest city, and I also go to uni here so I think I might take it for granted. I also don’t go exploring all that much – I’ve been to the docks goodness knows how many times and I’ve been to all the museums, yet over the past year or so i’ve seldom ventured anywhere other than my uni buildings or Liverpool One. Which is such a shame, because just a few minutes away are some seriously beautiful buildings/views.
I only took a few pictures inside the actual museum (not all of the exhibits are open yet, either) and didn’t want to post a ton of spoilers for anyone who plans to go to the museum. But these dog statues were so cute, we decided they must be Rupert and Colin (we thought they looked a bit Pug-ish.. no? just us?). One of my favourite parts of the museum was a cabinet were they had all these barbies/bratz/Zac Efron dolls (no idea) dressed in little outfits, that were designed by people from Liverpool to show what they thought of Liverpool Style. They were quite varied, so I thought it was really interesting. 
I also had to include this picture of Chavasse Park in Liverpool One which had me walking about with my mouth wide open at the Christmassy ness of it. Thought I was in Lapland for a few minutes. Some serious effort in Liverpool City Centre for Christmas this year! 
Anyway, didn’t plan on talking/typing so much! I think it’s probably a bit of subliminal procrastination going on, as I’ve been given another assignment today. It’s not due in until January though, so it’s all good. Hope your Monday’s are going well!

    I’ve never been to Liverpool! Seeing that I’ve lived in England my whole life, I’ve not really seen much of it! I’m too blinded by the bright orange people in my home county of Essex to escape ;-). Glad you had a good time!

    What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
