Newcastle upon Tyne & Gateshead

Well I went to the hairdressers yesterday and had all the dead ends chopped off, it looks a lot better now there’s no frizz at the ends. Also the colour seems to be lighter now, Maxine, my hairdresser, said that it will come lighter after each wash and its fine for me to put a brighter toner on if I want to and my hair won’t go green or fall out. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy.
So next week I could well be a different colour, photo’s will be available haha.

Today we took the dogs for a walk along Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside.
It’s a really nice walk along the River Tyne. On a Sunday there’s a small craft market which I love looking round. There’s homemade jewellery, hand painted pictures, handmade bags & purses and plenty of other goodies too.
I’ve taken a few photographs of our walk. We were originally going there to watch The Rubber Duck Race but unfortunately it had been cancelled. Shame really as I was looking forward to this bizarre event.

We also stopped off at the sacred football ground of Newcastle United

I loved this really old cathedral in the background

One of the many bridges that go over the River Tyne.. This is the railway bridge

The railway bridge again with in the background New Castle, where Newcastle got its name from. It was built in the 1100's
The red bridge is the swing bridge and is on the original site of the old Roman bridge.
