A barely detectable drop today as the RNG continues its little games…
Not a lot to say, had a quiet day in. Here’s a photo of the top of the Bank of Scotland HQ in Edinburgh
Bank of Scotland

 Well, technically, it’s the Lloyds Banking Group, or something like that after numerous takeovers, mergers, bailouts and other such shenanigans. The plaques outside the main entrance still say “Bank of Scotland”, anyway
While I’m not planning to go into a lot of plot details, it’s likely that the random mutterings that follow will reveal some things you might prefer not to know if you haven’t seen the episode yet, so in my usual way, I’ll include this warning:
Back down again today. I’m sure the scale is giggling…
After breakfast at Frankie & Benny’s and the shopping I didn’t do yesterday, I went to Sunderland to look at some pictures, and then on to South Shields to look at some more. Then I came home via Newcastle. And here I am.
This is the Groyne Lighthouse at South Shields, which I caught last week just as the rain started…
Hmmmmmmm, looks like the scale may be moving from RNG mode to full-on SB status. Either that, or I’ve had a near-record 3.5 pounds increase today. Which implies that I’m a bit like this character I saw in Edinburgh.
Down another bit today, which probably won’t last. It was another day where I didn’t get any further than the sandwich shop at lunchtime. Well, apart from a trip to the basement with BT, where I managed not to lose my apprentice in the dark and damp thingy under the pavement.
Here’s another funny thing from South Shields:
I can see the town

 Hi Lewis!
 See how long it takes you to notice this
Well, it was back to work today, but I won’t dwell on that. After work was a much better experience – I’m just back from seeing Tom Robinson at the Sage Gateshead. This was a great show, with a crowd-pleasing mix of old and new songs, Tom telling stories and looking like he was having a great time. Full report to follow, but in the meantime, I think something fishy is going on in South Shields
