Weight and Stuff Report – 14 September 2014

Up again today, mutter, mutter.

Having walked my legs off on Friday and Saturday, I felt the need for a more relaxed day today, so cancelled my one final planned Heritage Open Day visit, but as that was for somewhere that’s going to be open permanently (or so I understand), that wasn’t too much bother.

So, I’ve had a quiet day in – watched some TV, did the ironing and began to mentally prepare myself for going back to work tomorrow¬† :wah:

A couple of photos for today. This beautifully carved Tyne River God is a feature of the Mining Institute library. He’s covered in more symbolism than a very symbolic thing, from the cloth (prosperity), corn (plenty), and more, with coal in his crown:
