I trust you had a lovely Easter time, even if the temp’s. were disappointing  However I have been reliably informed by the met office that temps in England should be on the rise sometime next week.   Mmmm….  Heard all that before !

I myself had been invited to spend the  weekend   in Newcastle. Not by the  N.H.S.. appointment board  this time.   L.O.L.  But by a very good friend.  The sun had it’s hat on as we drove to a lovely place called Jesmond dean. IRONICALLY when I visit the FREEMAN’S hospital to give blood e.t.c. We drive over the dean and have often said to myself “one day I shall walk along the river that runs through it”. Then it was on to  Tyne mouth, I had never been there previously but had sailed out of the river Tyne quite a few times,  when on my way to Sweden.  We dined on a very tasty Sunday dinner, with real Yorkshire puddings , beef and as much veg as a person could eat. All washed down with a glass of tonic water ice and lemon. 

Pleased find below some snaps I took along the way.

  1. Lovely photos and I’m so glad you had a good time…you could have saved a piece of cake for drooling Timid one though! And dinner too! SllluurRRP! Sorry for the late arrival but connection’s been playing up with all this bad weather. Can’t get the other one off GPRS meaning it times out whilst trying to connect. Not good! This one’s only got 500mb data so hoping the other one gives up being a barometer sooner rather than later! Do I get a nice big piece of carrot cake for my efforts?!!

    • Yes Timid one, a wonderful weekend was had 😉 Sorry about your connection probs. I know what it is like when things don’t function, as it says on the box.
      RE: late arrival. Don’t do it again 🙂
      Carrot cake ….. Mmmmmm…. Considering the fact that you have only 500mb, I shall display an act of charity.
      You are most welcome to a piece of my carrot, cake. 🙂 But only the one mind you 🙂

      • Re: late arrival…terribly, wolfishly sorry about that 😀 I roll over submissively on my back and offer my throat to the Alpha!! 😉 Does that sound suitably repentant? lol … 🙂
        Re: Carrot cake…As I only had 500mb and used 376mb of it in one session on W/P lol could I please have a few extra slices of your carrot cake 😀 Pretty please with naughty wolfies on top! I did fight out the GPRS only connection on the 5GB data thingy and fight it back onto 3G+ just so I could visit your carrot cake…I mean you! And I am drooling all over your blog page gazing glazey eyed at your awesome carrot cake 😀

        • Sorry Timid One…. alack there is a lack of carrot cake around these here parts. Probably because I ate it ALL. However, I DO have at my disposal a chocky cake, and as it is you and only becausecake it’s you. I have decided to gift you with this “genuine” black forest gateaux from China. In recognition of the quality, substance and subject matter of your most interesting and renowned blog. So, for all your love and respect you so delightfully and willingly gift with a golden smile to your readership. I can say now,
          For this Ms Wolfy, you may indeed take the “entire” cake. 🙂

    • Hi Arlene Yes we had a lovely time and the sun was shining but very chilly. The food warmed us up. raw carrots, I don’t think so. I drink V8. veg juice , innocent smoothy and clementine juice. I don’t think i have ever met anyone that does not like carrot cake. A black forest gateaux an’t too bad iether. yummy 🙂
      Take care yourself Arlene and give a big hug to Ruby x
