Family has had a marvellous couple of weeks down in Newcastle; and then on Lindisfarne (Holy Island).
The weather was really remarkable; and here are a couple of quick snaps - one on the left from Ouseburn in Newcastle; and the one below from the North-shore of Holy Island ...
... why would anyone want to jet-off abroad when all of this is virtually on our doorstep ;-)
More seriously: rather unsurprisingly, I'm a bit awash with messages (via e-mail and on all forms of social media); so do please bear with me for a couple of days whilst I catch up ... I will aim to have replied to everything by Monday evening.
