31 January 2016: Cat Toy
I think I should've been a cat, because I had so much fun playing with this!
30 January 2016: Posh Seats
There was a fierce wind today so we watched the second half of Heaton Stannington v Tow Law from upstairs in the clubhouse. It finished 1-1 and thanks to our time in the posh seats we retained the feeling in our extremities.
29 January 2016: TV Stand
We scored for a free stand for our new television which was handy as we hadn't got round to buying one yet. It's so much nicer having it raised off the ground again! I tested it out with an episode of Air Crash Investigation, since it's only 5 weeks until my next flight.
28 January 2016: Byron
The burger chain Byron opened a restaurant in Newcastle a while ago so I went with Sara, Olwyn and Nicola to see what it was like. The decision was very much influenced by the 2-for-1 vouchers we had but this chilli burger was very tasty and the side dishes were nice too.
27 January 2016: Innocent
I missed the bus so wandered around Waterstones to kill time before the next one, and found myself staring reflectively at this quote for a moment.
26 January 2016: Teatime
A straightforward tea tonight - baked potato, tuna and salad.
25 January 2016: The Count of Monte Cristo
I couldn't take a photo of the book since I'm reading it using the Kindle app on my phone, but I couldn't miss this out. I'm only about three quarters of the way through but it's easily one of the best books I've ever read. With over 25 hours reading time, it was well worth 99p. You can pick your favourite cover and pretend that's the one I'm reading....
24 January 2016: Earlobe
I couldn't remember if I had earlobes which are attached or detached. This photo reminded me that they are detached.
23 January 2016: Saturday Smiles
Ali, Stu, Michael and I met for Saturday drinks. It looks like the girls were more pleased about this than the boys!
22 January 2016: Mint Mousse
Sorry, more food. I bought this mousse to have after lunch but it was disappointing. Too much cream, not enough mint flavour.
21 January 2016: The Herb Garden
We went to The Herb Garden for a Restaurant Week pizza. I had a vegan option (but with added cheese!) which consisted of beetroot, broccoli, mushroom and walnuts. It was absolutely lovely.
20 January 2016: Angelic
I saw this at work and mentioned how creepy I found it, so naturally a colleague relocated it to my desk.
19 January 2016: Glum Jumper
Maybe it's just because I hate Tuesdays, but when I glanced at my jumper this morning it seemed to resemble a glum face.
18 January 2016: Dark Desk
This is my desk in darkness, because we had a power cut for several hours at work today.
17 January 2016: Nemesis
Michael's brother gave him this t-shirt as a lighthearted gift because he loves the film Snatch, which is where the quote comes from. I haven't seen the film, but I assume the hammer served a purpose for this pose...
16 January 2016: Promise
I used to love going to Promise at Foundation in my late teens/early 20s. This was the relaunch at Digital with a 7 hour trance classics set from Richard Tulip. It was great to see lots of familiar faces, though I don't think my body can handle dancing for hours any more!
15 January 2016: Mixing
I warmed up for my first night clubbing in years with a lesson in mixing in Nasser and Sophie's new kitchen.
14 January 2016: Snow Defeat
Yesterday at work Carol said it would snow today and I said she was talking rubbish. This was the moment as I hurried to the bus stop that I admitted I may have possibly been wrong.
13 January 2016: Glutes
The gym has loads of new equipment, including this machine for working out your glutes. The idea is to push the pedal backwards with one foot while standing on your other leg. It seemed to do the trick and certainly raised my heart rate!
12 January 2016: David Bowie
The legendary David Bowie died yesterday after an 18 month battle with cancer, so this morning's papers all had lots of coverage of the story.
11 January 2016: Beehive Soft Drink
I ended up in a pub for the third day in a row, but this time it was strictly soft drinks only.
10 January 2016: Joe Dirt
This bloke in the Camperdown looked like the film character Joe Dirt thanks to the weird hat!
9 January 2016: Girls and Steve
To celebrate Stu's birthday a group of us went to the Wheatsheaf. Here are Tracee, Ali and Carolyn with Steve sneaking in at the side.
8 January 2016: Raffle Tickets
I bought a strip of tickets for a raffle at work and I'm hoping my lucky number 32 will secure the win!
7 January 2016: Hooks
Our shower curtain rail fell down the other day, so these plastic hooks are sitting on a bed of cotton wool until we can be bothered to put it back up. It's not the most pressing task, since we don't currently have a working shower.
6 January 2016: Pop Card
I read this leaflet about public transport while I ate breakfast.
5 January 2016: New Pattern
I love this pattern in the colouring book I got for Christmas so I can't wait to get it finished. I need to stop snapping my pencils though, perhaps I need a softer touch!
4 January 2016: Sock Snazz
These are one of the new pairs of socks I got for Christmas. I love how snazzy they are, even with no flash on the photo!
3 January 2016: The Replacements
I hadn't heard of this band until recently and Dave was kind enough to pick me up the box set so I can check them out. I've only heard the first album so far but it seemed pretty good and it's nice to have some new material to get through.
2 January 2016: Nasser's 30th
My cousin Nasser turned 30 so we had a lovely family meal at Prezzo to celebrate. Here is the bithday boy! Through clever use of bad photography and mirrors I have also managed to include parts of Sophie, Sue, Mam and Ali.
1 January 2016: New Years Day
I went for New Years Day drinks at Cramlington Club with Paul, Nigel, Angela, Paul, Chris, Michael and Mark.
