It's been a year since I last took a week's holiday, so I thought it was about time I did the same again. I'm not going quite as far as Scotland this time, but nearly. I'm off to the toppermostcounty in England which, scandalously, I've never visited before. I'll be staying in a fishing village along the utterly gorgeous coast, with a bedroom view straight out across the North Sea. Let's hope it doesn't chuck it down with rain too often.
I have severe doubts that this rural location will be blessed with leaky wi-fi connections, so blog updates are unlikely until I return (but you never know). In the meantime I shall attempt to provide you with a steady stream of Twitters by uploading text messages direct from my mobile phone. Don't expect thrilling hourly updates, but I'll try to bring you a flavour of the glorious North East whenever the opportunity arises. Because I'd hate you to think that you were missing out.
If you get bored while I'm away, here are some other things to look at: The Millennium Dome reopens on June 24th as a mobile-sponsored entertainment hub - The O7. A new public space has just been opened outside, called PeninsulaSquare, and I've been along to take some photos. To see 20 of them, either click on the photo link in my sidebar or click here. It'll never be this empty again. You could always go and Walk the Olympic Park. There's plenty of olddiamond geezerstuff to look through instead. This blog now has 58 monthly archive pages listed in the sidebar, so you could pick one of those at random every day and re-read it. That'd keep you busy until August (but I promise I'll be back a lot quicker than that).
