Down by a tiny amount today, nothing to get excited about.

After the usual breakfast and shopping, I decided to brave the rain and head into Newcastle for a bit of a look around the shops, followed by a look around the MetroCentre, where I looked at some interesting things, but didn’t actually buy any of them.

By the time I got back the Newcastle, the rain had stopped, the sky was clearing, and there was even a wee bit of sunshine, shock horror.

It seems the Jamie’s Italian restaurant in the reconstructed Monument Mall[1] is almost ready to open – the covers have come away, and the lights are on:

That'll be Jamie's, then
