Hello, in my blog post The Blog About Resolutions I said one of my resolutions was to read more. Well I’m trying but finding the time is hard at times, but when I can I do read.
I recently bought the new Harry Potter book the day it was released and just started reading it last week. I’m enjoying it so far and I’m looking forward to seeing how it all ends.
I’ve also been reading some of Stephen King’s books. I bought Salems Lot which I’ve always wanted to read because I love Stephen King books and film/tv adaptations from his books like It and The Shining. I also love things about vampires so I’m enjoying Salems Lot, I just need to finish it. I also bought The Shining, Doctor Sleep and the first book in the Dark Tower series which is soon to be made into a movie. So I need to finish that book soon.
The last couple of weeks I’ve been on holiday so I’ve found more time to read and I should be finished these books soon. So I’m sticking to my resolution and I will read more. Have you got any recommendations for me to read? If so just let me know and I might check it out.
Hello, on Wednesday me and my two children went to the Blue Reef Aquarium in Tynemouth .
We have been before, but it’s been a while so decided to go and they love it. It’s open from 10 am to 6 pm, £10.50 for adults and £8.25 for children under 3’s get in for free.
It’s got a variety of fish, small reef sharks, stingrays and seals. Also lizards, turtles and monkeys. They do shows too, like the deal show and monkey feeding. My favourite are the sharks I’ve always loved sharks so alwayslike to see them. My son loved the Sharks too and the turtles. My daughter started shouting Nemo and Dorey when she saw the clownfish.
If you live in or around the area I would recommend paying it a visit. It’s a good little place to visit the kids will love it.
Hello, a few months back a Five Guys Burgers restaurant opened in the Metro Centre in Gateshead and then one in Newcastle. I went for the first after the one in Newcastle opened and have been back a few times since.
I heard good things so decided to go. The first time I went I ordered a bacon double cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato sauce. I also ordered small fries and a coke. The burgers are delicious and it’s got to be one of the nicest burgers I’ve ever had. The toppings are also free so you can chose as much as you want.
The fries are delicious too, I only ordered small fries and you actually get loads. The portions of small fries are actually bigger then other burger chains, so if you’re ordering for yourself just get a small size. If you’re sharing then you can order a bigger size you’ll get enough to share and fill up on.
The drinks are also refillable so you can help yourself to as much pop as you choice. I ordered a coke but there’s a good selection to choice from. I’ve heard the shakes are nice but haven’t tried them yet, maybe next time.
So my verdict is the food is delicious and the choice you have is good. It’s more expensive than other burger chains, but the portions and choice you get make up for that. I enjoyed the food and time there so I’ll be going again.
Have you got any recommendations for good places to eat? Feel free to comment and let me know.
