Despite having walked my legs off in Durham yesterday, I went out today to attempt some minor shopping. I eventually found what I was after in the MetroCentre, then returned to Newcastle for a quick visit to the Laing Art Gallery, at which point my legs suggested that I’d done quite enough walking, so I came home and sat down. And realised I wasn’t going to get anything else done for the day. Which I didn’t.
In a slight variation on my usual Saturday routine, I went out early to get the shopping done first. I was so early that the buses were running at “not all that often” frequency, so I walked to Tesco. And there’s a funny thing, it was mostly empty, and I got all my shopping done in much less time than normal. I then got the bus home, unpacked the shopping and headed out again, arriving back in Trinity Square in time to meet my ex-minion Alex for breakfast. He was making a rare visit to the area, and contacted me last night to suggest a quick meet-up. Breakfast was up to its usual standard, and I was shocked to learn that Alex now drinks coffee…
After that, I came home and headed out soon afterwards to get a train to Durham for the Worldwide Photo Walk. This is the third year in a row I’ve been to one of these, and it was another good day – lots of sunshine, lots to see, lots of people to enjoy the walk with. Loads of photos have been taken, and I’ll be posting them as tuit supplies allow, but for now here’s one of Durham Cathedral:
 Any suggestion that this image has had anything removed will be unconvincingly denied
 And if you don’t know what I’m on about, you haven’t done the required reading
 A common problem, I’m sure.
Hmmmmmm, down again today. Apparently pizza and wine does that..
As seems to be my usual Sunday thing at the moment, I had a relaxed day in, which involved doing a bit of research on somethingorother and some actual proper guitar practice. I have a proper planned routine, but I keep not doing it, so I was a wee bit rusty. Though on most days when I don’t manage the full session, I do a bit of strumming and chord changing…
Anyway, here’s a photo showing some nice stone textures at Tynemouth Priory
