I feel like I haven't written in ages, how've you all been?? I've got a good little post coming up about my latest bargain finds...but today's is just a short one. A few Sunday's ago (the 16th) I decided to pop up to Newcastle Quayside with my Dad to visit the market. When I was little, my Mam, Dad and I used to visit the market nearly every Sunday and I remember it having hundreds of stalls, so I was really excited to see how it was today as I'd never been in years.
After arriving at the Quayside, I have to say I was a little disappointed. The market, although it had some lovely stalls, was nothing like I remembered, and there were only about 15 stalls to speak of. I bought my Mister a massive slab of peanut M 'n' M's chocolate for the bargain price of £3, so for all he didn't come along, he thought the day was a roaring success!! When I was little, I always came home with a helium balloon, and I was sad to see that there was no-one selling any this time...although that may have been just as well...if nostalgia had gotten the better of me I may have been travelling home with an over-sized Minnie Mouse balloon, or something equally bizarre. I'm not sure it would be a good look at 28!!! I do love the Quayside though, I think it's so pretty, so I used the opportunity to take some nice photos. It was such a bright day...but it was freeeeeeezing!!
These pictures are of the Millennium Bridge being lifted to let boats pass through...I've never seen this happen before so I was quite intrigued by it!
At the end of the trip, my Dad and I popped into the Baltic. I absolutely love the Baltic, but art isn't really my Dad's thing (you can see him there photo-bombing my Baltic picture!) so we only managed a browse around the gift shop. I took a photo of the 'Pitcher and Piano' too; I've never been in but I always think it looks like a pretty bar. Another time for cocktails perhaps?
There aren't any outfit of the day posts, as I spent the day looking like I'd been dragged through a hedge backwards it was sooo windy! However, I did take this little snap on the Metro...it seemed like a good day for Sea Monster...I wonder if there are any lurking in the Tyne...
