July // Week 27
Week 27 out of 52 and only two weeks after moving away we returned to Newcastle.
As Jake now works Monday to Friday, the weekends are our time to spend together. We'd planned on getting the bus out to a nearby small fishing town for fish and chips and ice cream as Mam had offered to look after Baker. However typical British (unpredictable) summertime graced us with a downpour and scarpered our plans.
Not wanting to waste the weekend (and Jakes first pay check from the new job) he booked us a hotel in Whitley Bay and we set of for the bus to Newcastle within 2 hours of waking up. The bus journey was the most horrendous ever. We ended up on the x18 instead of the x15 meaning it took a de-tour through every single tiny coastal town and village, taking 2.5 hours just to get to Alnwick (29mile...would usually take 40minutes) and making me insanely travel sick.
Safe to say we switched buses at Alnwick to shorten the rest of our journey.
That spiel over with I'll save the rest of our visit for the post that will be going up on Underland to Wonderland. The photo above is from our visit to the Toon Times exhibition at the Discovery Museum on the Sunday.
