Today we travelled from Brighton where we live to Crosby to visit our family members who live where I was born many years ago. Sadly we did not manage to get to Crosby by 2pm and so we missed out the chance to obtain some Happy Hippos today. My favourite Bakehouse is Satterthwaites that is based in Crosby as it has been for many years. Today Satterthwaites announced on Facebook that
“It’s Saturday we’re fully stocked with Happy Hippos and much more We look forward to seeing you – we’re open 8.30 till 2pm!! Happy Weekend everyone”
I will certainly get into Satterthwaites on Monday but this weekend we have not benefited from the Happy Hippos or indeed the other wonderful items. My favourite items include those on the image alongside the Happy Hippos.
One of my focus themes is political and in Brighton Pavilion we initially had a Conservative MP when I first arrived in Sussex, then in 1997 we achieved a Labour MP and since 2010 we have had the Green Party MP, Caroline Lucas who is a fantastic MP. My time in Crosby was also initially managed by a Conservative MP and then a few years after I arrived in Brighton the first SDP MP Shirley Williams became the MP and then a couple of years later the Conservatives managed to get in charge again for nearly 15 years and then in 1997 when Labour took control over the Nation the Crosby MP became a Labour member. When the Constituency was changed to Sefton Central in 2010 Bill Esterson became the MP and he is still the local Crosby MP today.
