Gosh how time flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe it’s been since Halloween since I last blogged here… soooo much has been going on, but our recent adventure was a trip to Newcastle last weekend!
I have to say, I love London, very much – but generally you wouldn’t call it the friendliest place on planet earth. Newcastle however, now that’s a WHOLE other story!! People walk around smiling, always with time to chat, happy to help, give directions or just chat about nothing – it was so refreshing and a real treat!
So on top of feeling very welcomed by the city, we went to Panto at the Theatre Royal there which was fabulous!! I love theatre and have never been averse to a bit of “it’s behind you” but this one really was outstanding! Brilliant writing, excellent performances, tremendous 3D section, fabulous tricks, hilarious gags and amazing music (although I would say that bit as my Husband is involved on that note – pardon the pun!)
But seriously, if you’re in that neck of the woods, I whole
heartedly recommend Robin Hood – yep, in tights! Brilliant – absolutely a laugh a minute, proper laugh out loud, belly laughs and also proper out loud screams for the 3D bit too – brilliant!
The other great thing about Newcastle? Was the Metrocentre of course – wow What a great place! We literally did shop til we dropped!…and how lucky were we? The snow melted just in time for us to get around comfortably. The train ride there however was beautiful! I’ve never seen the UK so covered in snow for such a distance, truly gorgeous!
