February 6, 2019 admin 0

As an adult I have moved house 4 times in 15 years which to some may seem a lot and to others may seem like very few moves.

I have written about Liverpool a few times because it quite simply is one of my all time favourite cities, which is helpful seen as though it is only 40 minutes up the road from us.
