Hmmm, that’s quite a big weight change today, but I think that might be due to the scale having new batteries and sorting itself out. This does mean that it might have been lying for the last few days, weeks or other time periods, of course…
Anyway, as the weather forecast for tomorrow is for lots of rain, I decided to make an effort and go out today. I went into Newcastle for a bit of a tour. I started at the Discovery Museum, where there’s a small but quite nice display on Joseph Swan, and some interesting architectural details:

I crossed over to have a look in the Baltic, which has been turned into an artwork as part of the exhibition of the work of Daniel Buren. One gallery has coloured glass set into the roof, with large angled mirrors reflecting the light in interesting ways, another features glowing pieces made of fibre optics, and the front of the building looks like this:

Which leads to the interior looking like this:
..and like this:
I liked it – definitely one of the more, err, accessible exhibitions I’ve seen there.
And after that I came home.
