OK, it's maybe not the warmest spot in the world, but really we can't complain about the weather (only two rainy days, and that was in Scotland).
The kids have enjoyed shopping and exploring the fabulous musuems with Grandma...
We've enjoyed some good nights out...
Winnie took us for a great night out to see her favourite band, The Happy Cats. Eeeeh! It was greeeet!
Winnie is something of a legendary Happy Cats groupie. She tracks these guys all over, and now we have seen them for ourselves, we can see why.
The music is very catchy, causing unplanned-for bouts of toe tapping, joviality, swaying and even dancing. By the end of the night the whole crowd is singing along and the atmosphere is no longer one of strangers at a pub, but of friends enjoying a great night out together.
Happy Cats groupies are on a first name basis with the band members. Winnie even got a song dedicated to Mr G and me... "My Sweet Northern Boy". It wasn't at all embarrassing, no honest!
Nothing like a night out in Newcastle for a good time. We finished it off with Spanish Tapas and a taxi ride. Aunty Irene was watching the bairns and apparently all went fine, except for the fact that cousin Cath used to think she'd have three kids, but after helping her mam babysit our lot, she's changed her mind. Bless.
We finished it off with getting her nails done... for £5. Bargain.
It was a lovely mummy-daughter time.
Newcastle has been great. We can't believe we are leaving tomorrow *sniff*
Man we are going to miss everyone so much!
