Lucky me! Memories of the Grange

This was my home away from home when I studied in England and I must say that it was one of the best places that any student could have hoped for. It was extremely luxurious with large bedrooms, comfortable beds, and the facilities for our recreation were top notch.

I can still picture the dining room, lounge, and living room in my mind. There was a garden just outside of the dining room and the grounds were simply immaculate.

Now, looking back on it all, I can truly appreciate it much more than I did then.  I had so much to be thankful and grateful for but unfortunately for me I did not see the true picture then.

This was a once in a lifetime experience that any teen would have died for but I am afraid that I may not have truly appreciated it then.  However, it is never too late to look back and remember.

In essence, I stayed at a classy hotel and I did not even know it.  I had the good fortune to be accommodated at a place that so many teens my age would have absolutely died for and have wished for.

Maybe some day I will return there, to Christopher Grange on Youens Way in Liverpool.  Just to see it once more and to silently say thank you for having enabled me to live there for one year.  I was the lucky one!
