2015 Teesdale Calendar

A bit gobsmacked by this. Nicky came back with the 2015 Teesdale Calendar, and I have 3 photo's printed in it. (Raby Castle, Eggleston Gardens & Barnard Castle-night scene). I entered the competition a while ago and then as usual, forgot all about it.

Staindrop Carnival 2014

The Turf Richmond

Our secret guilty pleasure. The Turf in Richmond is one of the best, cheapest, abundant restaurants we've come across. If you can see the table of food we have, well, we bought all this, drinks and deserts later for cheaper than the price of 1 full course at the Rose & Crown in Romaldkirk.
My fave dishes are the chillli, lasagne and the burgers. Superb food at really good prices.

The ABBA Sensation at Thorp Perrow

I went last night with the family to see the ABBA Sensation at Thorp Perrow. ABBA are not on my top 10 of groups, I just went for Nicky and Elionwy. These guys were superb though. Great fun, a real rapport with the audience. It was the first concert I'd been too that was half concert and half picnic.
It didn't take long for the group to have everyone singing along, then clapping, then waving hands, then mass dancing. It even got to the state when some of the girls were using trees to pole dance with. Seriously!

The Dream Academy: Life in A Northern Town

The weather this morning just reminds me of this old video. It had to be added at some point.
