31 October 2010: Newcastle 5-1 Sunderland
Obviously I was gutted to miss this game, but if you're going to watch a great football game anywhere in the world I would recommend Las Vegas. This was a Sunderland fan crying into the bar at half time.

An oversized breakfast at a restaurant which has featured on Man V Food.

Rach having a cocktail in Wetherspoons in Hexham.
19 October 2010: Memory Stick
Very useful for watching things through the PS3.

17 October 2010: No Pizza
I hate it when I don't leave a slice for breakfast.

Sucky new markings on the Gallowgate roof.

Just when I've been thinking about joining a gym, this comes through the door. A sign?
14 October 2010: Kandy Box
Anyone who grew up in Forest Hall will remember the Kandy Box, which was an amazing sweet shop. Well, really it was just a standard sweet shop, but it seemed amazing when I was little. Anyway, imagine my surprise when I passed the old location and saw this.. is a return on the cards?
13 October 2010: Stowell Street Works
The work to make bigger pavements (or something) on Stowell Street has commenced.
12 October 2010: Hill
So I'm running, and my foot starts to hurt.. badly. I move down to a walk and limp back, then I get to climb this ridiculous bank. Great.
11 October 2010: Delays
Went to see Delays at the Academy. Note the traditional tall person blocking my view.

4 October 2010: Salad Box
The remains of a lovely salad box (with spicy tuna) from Tony & Frankie's.
3 October 2010: Man City 2-1 Newcastle
Massive thumbs down for this game. Dodgy refereeing, and a broken leg for new signing Hatem Ben Arfa.
2 October 2010: When The Boat Comes In
I don't see how exercise can possibly be a bad thing when it takes me along the Quayside for this view.
1 October 2010: Jeans for Genes
Today was Jeans for Genes day at work and I decided to accompany my jeans with a splash of colour.
