Well, it looks like the scale is settling in for an extended game of silly buggers, as it’s been doing that thing where it takes a loooooong time to settle down and display an actual final weight figure, while randomly oscillating in a range of plus or minus three pounds. So I’m up today. Or maybe not, who knows?
Not much going on today, so here’s another photo from the Quayside:
Hmmm, not sure what happened there – that’s a big rise today. Unless the scale is playing one of its funny little games…
Today, there was a partial solar eclipse, which is a potentially spectacular sight (subject to having the right kind of eye protection, of course), but was slightly marred by heavy cloud cover. But it could be seen through some cloud, which was quite nice…
Down just a wee bit today, which as you might guess from the slightly low step count was one of those days when I didn’t get any further than the sarnie shop at lunchtime. But at least it was a productive busy day rather than an annoying busy day. Things were done. A thing was transformed from a real thing to a virtual thing.
Talking of transformations, here’s a photo from last year’s Sunderland air show that I’ve mucked about with a bit
Having finished my shopping early (and having not had the traditional Frankie & Benny’s breakfast for the third week in a row), and with it being a dull and grey day, I decided to have a tour of some of the local cultural attractions.
I started off at the Baltic, where there were some odd things on show, some of which were appealing, others were more of the “err, yeah” variety…
My next target was the Discovery Museum, but I got sidetracked by the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Centre for Life. This was made even more attractive as at present parts of the centre are closed for refurbishment, which means the normally moderately painful admission charge has been lowered to £5. There was some stunning work on show, all nicely lit and well laid out. Well worth a visit.
I then had a wander around Discovery as planned, and then found I’d almost run out of afternoon and came home.
Here’s another of my early evening photos of the Tyne:
