    Newcastle Eagles Basketball at Sport Central

    A damp Friday morning in Newcastle and I was on route to an even damper Rothbury. Just as I shut the door of my van I spotted a message. “I have 4 corporate tickets for Newcastle Eagles Basketball, for tonight if you fancy them?” We had been racking our brains for something different to do […]

    James and the Giant Peach – Northern Stage

    I Cannot quite believe we have made it to Christmas Eve.  It’s been a crazily busy month but we have loved every single Christmas light, market, party, nativity performance and despite almost having a meltdown last week really wouldn’t have it any other way.  I’m so very ready for a few days staying with the family-eating […]

  • The Days of the Raj Gosforth


    The Days of the Raj – Gosforth

    The Days of the Raj has bee around in Gosforth (opposite Asda), for many years now. It is a sit in restaurant, but also serves up takeaway. I’ve got to admit that I have had a love hate relationship with the place. Last time I went to order the British meal of choice Chicken Tikka […]

    Child Free Day After a lovely coffee in the Long play cafe we meandered up to town, grabbing some last minute crafty bits for Imogen’s party taking place that night.  After bumping into our neighbour Kim, and my sister in law Janice and her Mam in the space of 5 minutes, Alan came to the […]
