Glendale Show

Glendale Show Aug 17 (1)

I was actually due to be in North Wales this bank holiday weekend but plans were changed after a friend became ill. We stayed in the North East but took the opportunity to go to the Glendale Agricultural Show near Wooler in North Northumberland. Our arrival was delayed by an accident on the A697 but we spent 3 years at the show. A good time had by all though at £14 a ticket, the entry fee was not cheap.

My Costa Coffee visits to end

Costa Coffee QE Hospital Gateshead Aug 17

In July I visited Costa Coffee more often in that one month that I have in the rest of my life. The reason was a friend was in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. There is a Costa branch there so I took him there to get him out of the ward. Thankfully my friend is now home so the daily dose of overpriced coffee and the occasional cake is now at an end. I will not shed a tear. I'm not a fan of this chain.
