As promised, I tried the (South Parkway) and shuttle bus option. I think the whole trip from Liverpool/Lime street to John Lennon airport took about 30 minutes. Possibly not a lot quicker than the bus journey but might be less vulnerable to traffic delays. B.t.w do you know your (usb compatible) record deck has the reputation of being extremely hard on vinyl...? Someone said it's like using a Stanley knife/plough share! You might consider buying an old Pioneer or Technics deck instead. Hope you continue acquiring more memorabilia Kat.
You were great company too - charming and sooooo attractive in all ways.
My G.P. said I needed to lose (at least) 15 kilos so I'll get on with that before I revisit she who needs to be obeyed. Take care, Yael.
