We called into the Runhead in Ryton, Gateshead, yesterday for lunch. We were a bit disappointed. While the service was friendly, the food could have been better. I had a lamb burger but I couldn't taste the lamb. My friend Richard had scampi which he found to be a bit undercooked.

I visited Beamish Museum again last week. It's very helpful that I only live about 10-15 minutes drive from what is my favourite museum on the planet! There were no new attractions from my last visit but we had a great time nonetheless. The photos in this post are of the Edwardian town.
I was at the Kells Lane Fair on Saturday in Low Fell, Gateshead. It's an annual event and my main purpose for being there was to sell preserves and eggs from my self-sufficiency project. I took with me one of our young goats who turned out to be the big hit of the fair. Lots of people queued up to look after him, including stewards from the fair!

There was no time for breakfast at the Premier Inn so we caught the early coach to Stansted Airport. Once through all the checks, we went in search of somewhere to eat. We found Coast to Coast which was surprisingly competitively priced. Sadly, the waiter managed to drop one of our dishes on the floor. Happily he replaced it!

Finding somewhere to dine for the evening could have meant a long walk out of the hotel, or using the restaurant in the Stansted Premier Inn. We went for the latter. A good choice. A reasonably priced meal and good quality. No complaints.
