Fishink Easter Weekend

April 3, 2013

Apart from packing boxes this easter weekend, in preparation for my moving house,  I also managed to visit some of my old school friends over on the wirral. I’ve said it before and I’ll happily say it time and again, that I feel so lucky to still have such really solid friends from my school days around me. You know who you are, Gill, Chris, Marie, Louise, Claire, Ian, Elaine, Ann, Anna, Sarah and their partners and families too. Such an amazing set of friends, some who’ve shared my life since I was about 5 years old ! God help them.

Four of us went for a walk around Royden Park and up Thurstaston Hill, both on the Wirral. Some of the party like climbing, whether it’s trees or rocks, they’re not too fussy.

What a smart stile, and the sandstone rocks were so worn that they had footholes all the way up to the top.

We also stopped for a cup of tea and rest whilst the sun was out.

Whilst I was over on the Wirral I popped in to visit the newly opened Staacks Gallery Shop in West Kirby. It’s still on Banks Road and looks pretty amazing with it’s blue and white counters.

They stock a lovely range of Fishink products, including cards, prints, ceramics, stamps etc and some framed prints that are exclusive to the gallery. plus a wide selection of other peoples’ work including ceramics, textiles and jewellery.

Hope everyone had a great Easter break and managed to also catch up with friends and family too. Ah well back to the packing (sigh).

      Very true and great to have a bit of this sunshine too. I’ve missed the sun this year.

    wow Craig, the Fishink products look lovely in display! And I recognize a couple of the ones I have at home, just yesterday I was taking notes on the one with blue birds, this is a small world! Lovely post!
