Scouse Momma and Halloween

The origins of Halloween are said to date back to an ancient Celtic festival called Samhain (pron. Sowin). Celts, who lived 2000 years ago in Ireland, the UK and Northern France, celebrated their new year on 1st November. This marked the end of the harvest and the summer and was the start of winter time… Read more »

Scouse Momma and the #ECHOScouse5k

In this day and age I am always moved to tears by the selflessness of others. At times, the world we live in is pretty shitty so when people come along and ask for nothing and give freely it gives us all hope that humanity is alive and well and compassion for others hasn’t gone… Read more »

Scouse Momma and Slim’s Pork Chop Express

An impromptu evening out with Child #1 took us to Slim’s Pork Chop Express on Seel Street. The bar is downstairs and there’s a few tables here but the main part of the restaurant and the kitchen are upstairs. The whole restaurant is cosy and casual. The loo is downstairs too, very clean and large… Read more »

Scouse Momma and Hot Flushes

I’m not sure if I can actually put into words how it feels to go through the menopause.  I say go through as though I’ve been, done and gone…. chance would be a fine thing. A friend of mine, who is older than me, started the menopause and asked my mum how long her hot… Read more »

Scouse Momma and Brain Fog

Forgetfulness is embarrassing and frustrating at the best of times and affects us all to some degree but ‘Brain Fog’ with the menopause is pretty much ongoing for some considerable time. I can’t tell you how long it last for because it’s still happening to me. Our house for the past few years has been… Read more »

Scouse Momma and Kaspa’s Dessert’s

I’m not sure how we resisted for so long but we finally made a trip to dessert heaven, Kaspa’s. The place reminds me of a 1950’s American style establishment, booths, pink, black and glitter – don’t forget the glitter. Toilets are on the ground floor, very clean and sweet smelling. We arrived just as they’d… Read more »

Scouse Momma and Body Image

This generally means we… Read more »

Scouse Momma and My Children

I was quite young when I had my children, just 22 when I had Child #1 and at the end of my 23rd year when I had Child #2 so there;s only 21 months between them. In a lot of ways it was hard work, you just get the older one sleeping through the night… Read more »

  • Scouse Momma and Scouse

    The people of Liverpool are known as Scousers, a nickname which is supposed to have come about because of the City’s love of a stew made from meat and vegetables known locally as ‘scouse’.

  • Scouse Momma and Lucha Libre

    The Husband and I decided to eat out for Sunday lunch for a change and settled on Lucha Libre in Wood Street. It’s a ‘cool dude’ kinda place but you wouldn’t feel out of place no matter what your age. Its casual with funky music which doesn’t necessarily match the Mexican theme but its toe… Read more »

    You can find The Baltic Social just by the traffic lights at the junction of Jamaica Street and Parliament Street, the area is hip and trendy and known as the Baltic Triangle which is quite refreshing as every other area in the city seems to be a ‘quarter’ these days. The eatery sits inside one… Read more »

It used to be call the Overseas but changed its name a while ago. If we’re having a take away we will often order from here as they deliver… Read more »

  • Scouse Momma and The Tavern

    I love The Tavern, the bare brick walls covered in eclectic displays of memorabilia of no particular focus except Americana. The flashing arrow and neon food sign remind me of a prop from BeetleJuice, and there’s the model train that runs along the almost ceiling high track. I’ve eaten Sunday breakfast at The Tavern more… Read more »

  • Scouse Momma and IMAX Liverpool One

        A random day off work so me and Husband decide to catch a movie we’ve been wanting to see. We chose the 11am showing so jump the bus into the city centre. Husband asks, ‘Are we on a date?’ which makes me laugh, compared to the younger people of today who have a… Read more »
