CHILLINGHAM ROAD METRO STATION
I was really tempted to stay in today. The weather was grey, damp and misty and I had the feeling it was going to be a " bad back day" - I could feel the tell tale signs. However I decided to make the effort to go out..
I got the bus to Newcastle and then the Metro to just outside Byker. Then a short walk to Newcastle Shopping Park. I went into the Marks and Spencer outlet shop. Tried a few things on and got some trousers and a fleece top. Also looked in T K Maxx - got nothing ( I managed to resist buying a handbag ) and did some food shopping in Asda. Then Metro back to Newcastle and bus home. Got home about 6.15pm.
As I feared my back did get painful so I took some Co-Codamol while I was out and that really helped.
I took my blip shot at the station when I was waiting for the Metro back to Newcastle. I had a 14 min wait and I was bored.
Spotted lots of men with flowers/red heart shaped balloons while I was out and about. Cupid strikes again. I bought myself some daffodils but they are not ready to blip as they haven't opened yet.
