Newcastle & Northern Soul.....
Happy Movember folks! Once again, I personally won't be growing any facial hair this month but good luck to you that are...hope you raise a ton of money.
After 7 hours on the bus, I was famished so a trip to the Sky Apple Vegetarian Cafe' was very welcome. I've mentioned this little cafe' before I think but here's a link for anyone that might be interested in checking it out. www.skyapple.co.uk. We managed three courses like the food heroes we are and I'll look forward to visiting next time I'm in Newcastle. From what I've seen, Sky Apple gets pretty busy so book a table if you're going later in the evening.
On Saturday, the sun came out and we headed to Tynemouth for a nosey round the flea market (which I love!) and a few shops. The flea market is fantastic - everything from cupcakes to Nazi memorabilia (yes really) and you can come home with a few bargains. I couldn't resist (another) new handbag. Well it would be rude not to wouldn't it? To Whitley Bay afterwards, for vintage shops and a (half-hearted) vintage tea-room. I won't write a bad review of it quite yet as they'd only just opened but if I return next year and see it's still full of Cath Kidston, I will be having words.
I'm hoping that next time I visit, it'll be warmer, longer days and we can go to the coast again. It really is the most beautiful part of the world, with long sandy beaches, tea-rooms lost in time and fresh air.
With that, I'll love you & leave you with....with the news I'm getting a cat!!! Watch this space.
