My day in town.

To pass the time, I thought I would blog on the go today, and update the blog as the day went by.

After spending the last week or two sweltering whilst driving my car, I have decided to bit the bullet and fork out the money required to get the air conditioning in the car fixed. I’ve been putting it off for the last year or so due to the cost. It needs a whole new air conditioning unit to be fitted. This means spending about three and a half hours hobbling around town with my walking stick as my back is giving me loads of grief. Not fun. I’d rather be at home relaxing on the settee.
All this excitement  discomfort calls for a coffee at Starbucks where I can spend the time sitting rather than walking and partake in one of my favourite pastimes, people watching.
Well it’s now been two hours. I went to J. G windows in Newcastle’s Central Arcade and bought the Auf Wiedersehen Pet 30th Anniversary reunion dvd. Can’t wait to watch it.
I have just paid a visit to the Apple store to get a replacement charge cable for Gee’s ipad. I really wish she would learn not to bend them or just yank them out. I’m gonna make sure she pays for this one.
While wandering around town I saw two Space Invader tile motifs on walls. Here is one.

I read up a bit on them when I got home and apparently the person who puts these up is known as ‘Invader’ surprisingly enough. He is an ‘artist’. Some view him as a vandal and he does not get permission to put these motifs up on buildings.
Read about him here, or google space invader street art.
Personally, I like these. Because I used to play space invaders when I was younger, these motifs bring a smile to my face.

I have now received my car back and its lovely and cold inside now. Like a fridge. So nice when outside its 22 degrees. Ahhhhh blissssss
