Weight and Stuff Report – 8 July 2013

Down a teeny bit today. I went for a bit of a walk at lunchtime, as I had the time and it was another nicely sunny day.

I walked up to Leazes Park, where I saw a number of things, such as Queen Victoria standing outside the Royal Victoria Infirmary. You’d think they’d let her sit down, she’s been waiting ages for that appointment…

The water was still, and the reflections were looking good:
