Whitley bay, well to be more precise tynemouth (I think). To be more exact I’m in a little cafe/ bistro located inside the old Catholic Church on the corner of the Main Street drinking an earl grey and sampling some sort of lemon cake!

Well I ain’t turning Japanese but that ‘Babestation’ channel is looking worth a fiver a month right now!! No really it’s not, I’m just being silly! What I am doing, however, is venturing into the regions biggest shopping mall to sample some of its delights and maybe revel in some merriness! On reflection, maybe this … More No sex no drugs no wine no woman!
Wind, and rain, and cold! Is it winter now? I’m sure there are at least FOUR seasons somewhere, although I know we have had at least three years worth of rain in one day during my travels! “No, not the Bore Worms” but the bike riding days are still abound! A little damp won’t stop … More Let’s all look through the round window

Unfortunately when I woke yesterday the sun had buggered off to other far away places and deserted the north of England. In fact it had done one all the way down to an area close to Bristol. I … More Starfish and coffee
I’m writing this through new eyes! Well when I say new eyes I mean me right eye has sorted itself out from the last couple of days pain! It started in me left eye and subsided after about 24 hours, I wasn’t banking on it scurrying across the bridge of me nose to the other … More Sunday!
Dentist! We done bed no stinkin dentist! Well obviously we do and that was my first call this morning!
