29 February 2016: Euros
I got some euros so I'm all set for my trip to Hamburg.
28 February 2016: Lezzet Kebab
Since we're away next weekend, we celebrated Mother's Day a week early by going to Lezzet with Mam and Chris. I had the chicken shish kebab, which was lovely.
27 February 2016: New Handbag
My handbag was looking a bit desperate so I bought a new one from Matalan.
26 February 2016: The Gentleman
I went for a meal at The Gentleman with Audrey, Heather, Marie, Juliet, Linda, Fay and Sara (who was allowed to avoid the photo!) and it was a surprisingly civilised affair.
25 February 2016: The Cave
Yesterday the last two lighting strips above my desk gave up, so my work area is now a bit like a dark cave. It's quite a difference from the other fully working lights in the photo!
24 February 2016: Pink Sky
With frost on the ground and pink in the sky, it was a cold but calm winter morning.
23 February 2016: Roof
After looking pretty much like a building site for absolutely ages, the houses on the site of the old La Sagesse school are finally taking shape.
22 February 2016: Betron
I've needed some new headphones for a while and a friend recommended these Betron ones. So far they've been a massive improvement on the broken set I've been using.
21 February 2016: Nice Day
It got out into a nice day as we walked from Forest Hall to Killingworth. About half an hour after this, it was raining.
20 February 2016: Mixed Emotions
I'm always grateful when people let me take photos of them for this project, but today's effort seems to have brought about mixed emotions. Stu didn't look too happy, however Carolyn, Ali, Joanne and Phil at least managed a smile.
19 February 2016: Wedding Invitation
I love being invited to things, so it was exciting to receive an invitation to Matt and Abby's wedding in May!
18 February 2016: Beehive Catch Up
It was a shame the match we were going to was called off, but good to catch up with James, and the Beehive was obviously the best establishment for such a moment.
17 February 2016: 5p Shop
Usually I'd pad out a shopping trip with a few extra items, but as it's a few days before payday and the only thing I needed was one carrot, I managed to limit my spending to 5p.
16 February 2016: Gym Selfie
Not the posing type of selfie in the gym, just a representation of how I look resting in between sets on the leg curl machine. You wouldn't think from my bored expression that I was actually enjoying myself!
15 February 2016: Shields Tickets
We have tickets to the rescheduled South Shields v North Shields derby match, which will now be played later this week.
14 February 2016: Brunch
This is enough of a Valentine's Day brunch for me!
13 February 2016: Sleepover Badge
I didn't expect a reward for helping out last night so this badge was a really cute surprise! It's just a shame the lady with glasses has darker hair than me otherwise it'd be a good likeness.
12 February 2016: Trefoil House
I broke my Friday night 'Gym and Housework' tradition by agreeing to spend the night with Ali at a sleepover for her Rainbows. This brought me to Trefoil House in North Shields, the home of Girlguiding.
11 February 2016: Valentine's Offer
We don't bother with Valentine's Day so this is probably the best offer I'm going to get!
10 February 2016: Feline Friend
I got the fright of my life when something brushed up against my ankle at the bus stop this morning, but it was just this kitten, which then decided to sit in front of me for a few minutes.
9 February 2016: Top Tosser
No I'm not being offensive, it's Shrove Tuesday and Michael is always best at tossing our pancakes!
8 February 2016: Easter
The shops are already full of Easter things.
7 February 2016: Zypern
Well I said I wanted to work on my German, but I'm not sure how far this information book about Cyprus, written in German, will get me.
6 February 2016: Matthew & Danielle's Party
We visited Matthew and Danielle to celebrate their engagement and their new home. I insisted Danielle, Stu, Daniel, Jane and Alex pose for my photo of the day!
5 February 2016: Match Tickets
In 4 weeks we will be in Hamburg and our tickets for Hamburger SV vs Hertha BSC have arrived. Time to start brushing up on my German!
4 February 2016: Perch
For a moment I wished I could join this seagull, just perching on a car all day instead of going to work.
3 February 2016: Lost Cat
We had this flyer about a lost cat put through our door. I haven't seen it around here so far, but I'll keep an eye out.
2 February 2016: Stagecoach Smart
For the first time, my weekly bus ticket was loaded onto a smart card instead of being in paper form. Once I'm used to how it works, it will be loads better to renew online.
1 February 2016: White Teeth
I'm a little bit behind with January's book club choice, but since everyone is in the same boat we've agreed to skip February.
