Coming Home

As lovely as it is to be away visiting family over Christmas it is always nice to return home and as we began our journey back to the North East this afternoon we were very much looking forward to spending the last few days of the Christmas break in our cosy flat.

Having travelled quite a bit over the break, today's journey was the shortest and we were in high spirits as we started seeing our first signs to Newcastle.

Whenever we have a hire car and find ourselves on the A1 I can't help but ask if I'll be getting a little look at the Angel of the North.  I love the Angel, it gives me goose bumps every time I see it.  My first ever journey up to  Newcastle to see Simon was by coach and we drove straight past the Angel and I was in complete awe at how huge and magnificent it looked against the landscape.

Knowing how much I love her Simon took me on a little detour on the way home so I could see her in all her glory as the sun was beginning to set.

I'll be doing a bit more of a Christmassy post in a few days but for now I leave you with some photos I took of the Angel this evening.
