last weekend, this weekend

I was stuck in the office for all the daylight hours last weekend and wasn't lucky enough to get a window seat.  Yuck.  Fortunately, one of my colleagues spotted this double rainbow (sprouting from the Science Centre tower this time) and alerted us all for a very pleasant screen break...which was about as good as the two shifts got really.  Must be the season for double rainbows i.e. perpetually rainy!

This weekend is set to be very different from last and much more fun.  Graham and I are going on a mini-break to Newcastle, staying overnight WITHOUT DULCIE, who is staying at home with her grandparents.  This is very exciting for all concerned.  I'm hoping to see Spuggy (ooh, Byker...Grove!) and am looking forward to having my side of the bed all to myself for a night and eating a massive hotel breakfast in the morning.  It's going to be good!

So far our plans extend to an antique market and fish and chips in Tynemouth, a cinema trip, a visit to the BALTIC and some general exploring of a new-to-us city.  With no buggy/toddling toddler, we'll be able to set our own schedule, go up and down stairs with ease and squeeze through any doorway that takes our fancy.  Bliss.  But you know I'll miss the little ankle-biter really :)


  1. That sounds like a lovely weekend! :) We are having terrible weather at the moment, so we are stuck in the house, but "Room on the Broom" on TV is keeping us all entertained.

    1. Thank the lord for Julia Donaldson and television!

    1. Thanks! I'm starting to get the guilt... but I'm sure I'll get over it :)
