Weight and Stuff Report – 5 November 2010

Hmmm, down again today.

I went into Newcastle this afternoon, rather than going further afield. I had a bit of shopping to do, needed to pop into the bank and renew my bus pass, all those non-exciting things one has to do now and then.

While I was out, I went to the Discovery Museum for the first time since, err, last time. This turned out to be a good move, as there’s an excellent temporary exhibition on the Tyne Bridges – lots of old paintings, prints, photographs and video[1] and moderately good explanatory text. Well worth a visit for that alone, but there’s lots more to see.

I also found out that work has now started on the Newcastle Hotel Chocolat shop :bouncy:
