Monday Smiles

This weekend has been amazing, one of my best friends from London came to visit and I've been looking forward to it for a long time.  Anyone else who is an expert in buying train tickets knows what a complicated mission it is to get the cheap seats so this has been something we've had planned ever since I moved ... it's been  a very long 12 week wait!

When showing a friend the very best of the North East in only a short weekend where do you even begin?   I opted for a quick drink in Jalou on Friday (I've been wanting to try the cookie monster cocktail ever since I moved), a trip to beautiful Durham on Saturday and a little night out on  Saturday at The Living Room and Big Mussel.   Unfortunately the weekend went far too fast, there was a bit of a tearful goodbye at Central Station yesterday but one thing I will say is that the North East has a new fan  :)
This week I am mostly looking forward to Restaurant Week.  We have two restaurants booked and I'm sure I'll be telling you all about it in a future post. 

Happy Monday!
