Yesterday I went on another shopping trip to Newcastle. I think I have said before that I love Newcastle, but I will say it again. |I love Newcastle, it is a great place. I was born in Gateshead, just across the Tyne, but often spent time in Newcastle, so I feel I am going home when I visit. Now I live some seventy miles north, so it's not so easy to get there, however, when I get the chance, I do make the effort. I wandered around the shops, Fenwicks, John Lewis, M&S, Debenhams - yes Newcastle has them all and more - enjoying every single moment. I also spent some money, which made the day even more enjoyable. I ended the afternoon with a glass of wine in the M&S Cafe situated in the Food Hall, before going back to the car to return home.
Today, I went to play darts at our social club. I should add here that I used to go regularly at one time, but was never any good at it. However, you may be thinking that I might have developed a better aim since I was last there. Let me put your mind at rest right now, nothing has changed. I was less than useless. I threw my darts like a maniac possessed. They went everywhere, except the target. Thankfully everyone knew better than to stand anywhere near the board when I was about to throw. Will I be there next week? At the moment, your guess is as good as mine, so you'll have to watch this space. Right now, I am enjoying a glass of red wine, something of a consolation prize, I guess.
Hope your week is going well,
