It’s been a flying visit to Geordieland this time which has been really lovely but also quite tiring. Today I finally managed to catch up with my beloved niece Mia; to not to would be unthinkable and so it was lovely to see her and other family members today in our favourite Saltwell Park. The sun was shining, there was boats on the lake, children on the swings and a gorgeous atmosphere all around. It was a lovely way to spend my last afternoon. Tomorrow I’ll leave the north east about 9am for my 7.25 hour drive back to Wales taking away, as always, the warmest of memories.
