Something came in the post for Neil this morning so I decided to go to his work and give it to him. Got the bus to Dunston. Got off the bus a couple of stops early to get a few more steps under my belt. My route took me over the bridge which crosses over the A1 and the railway line. I noticed this " graffiti " painted on the bridge. Such a sad image. I have " Googled " but apart from a couple of photos on Flickr of the image I couldn't find anything about poor Jimmy Harris. Thanks to BikerBear for hosting the Flower Friday challenge.
I spent around half an hour with Neil. I chatted to him more today than I did on Wednesday when he was at my house as he was asleep for most of the time. He has 9 days off work to look forward to. Next week he is going on a " Jolly Boys Outing " to Cheltenham Races. He likes to go every year if he can get the time off work.
After seeing Neil I popped into Aldi which is nearby. Didn't want much but still came out with a big shopping bag full.
Weather today was overcast and mild.
Becky and Mike have got the end of their first week at work commuting from Sussex. 2 hours there and 2 hours back on the train. At a cost of £90 a week. Bit of a change for them - especially Becky who used to walk to work and back every day. That's the price to pay for living in the country I guess. Mind you their council tax is cheaper and also Mikes car insurance has been reduced now that he doesn't have a London postcode. Swings and roundabouts.
