In Liverpool where today was spent walking from Paul’s childhood home up to John’s house then to Penny Lane (just realised I missed Strawberry Field, oh well, I’m not going back up). Have also seen the Albert Docks, Cavern, Beatles Story etc but haven’t paid to go into anywhere; I’m not fussed enough to pay to see a room Paul last sat in 60’s years ago on a similar chair. I got the excitement walking thru the golf course Paul and George would cut thru to get to John’s house, it’s enough to know they were on the streets running around. Not impressed by Matthew Street after the novelty wears off, the Beatles Shop is so much worse compared to the one in London.
The ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ hotel is fabulous if you can stand listening to the Beatles constantly; ‘1’ is played on a loop in the lobby/bar but after the few minutes of “again!” wears off the joy in hearing ‘Beatles’ kicks in and you get to experience how the music developed from ‘Love Me Do ’ to ‘The Long And Winding Road ’ The breakfast/lunch restaurant plays a wider selection of Beatles songs, tho amusingly ‘Within You, Within You’ was turned off after about a minute for a different more easy going Beatles track.

Well, I did it. The 3000 piece Beatles jigsaw is complete. I feel Free As A Bird knowing it is done. There was real anxiety as numerous times I was convinced pieces were missing. It’s a real mind game, almost as if pieces appear in the tray overnight even though you’ve scoured them repeatedly. Next step is getting this framed and displayed in my room.
