The garden of the Freeman Hospital, where I went for an NHS back rub to help my bad shoulder.

26 April 2010: Green Tea
I'm not a tea drinker but I agreed to try some green tea. I'm not sure what's the matter with the colouring of the photo, but it looked digusting (and didn't taste much better).

25 April 2010: Monet
This picture hangs in my bedroom.. I'd been out for a lovely barbecue but forgot to take my phone so couldn't snap a picture while I was out.

Newcastle lost (undeservedly) in the Youth Cup Semi Final 2nd leg and went out of the competition in front of almost 5,000 fans.. mostly in the East Stand, hence the empty seats elsewhere.

Paul's ring-shaped blueberry muffin with cream cheese icing. If nothing else, we all learned that there are two kinds of sour cream.

7 April 2010: Shot Glass
This little lad started out life at Hull (A) last season. Then ended up in my bag along with 4 of his brothers. Oops.

Newcastle achieve promotion to the Premier League, shortly before beating Sheffield United 2-1.

The huge pile of washing which I could absolutely not be bothered to do. So I didn't.

Yes it happened.. I saw Newcastle win away! This picture shows the lads celebrating Shola's goal to make it 3-1.

2 April 2010: Good Friday
An eventful Good Friday included us getting thrown out of The Hancock (the pub, not the museum). It all kicked off as a result of some of our glasses getting collected despite not being finished with. This was Graham's attempt in the next pub to ensure the safety of his bottle while going out for a cigarette.

1 April 2010: Dance City
My faith in my country is sky high as I realise my local polling station is.. Dance City.
