Great North Run


I had almost forgotten that the Great North Run was happening today, but luckily the sound of the Red Arrows flying overhead helped me remember. While I definitely wasn't running this year, I still got to enjoy the buzz of a city that plays host to the biggest half marathon in the world.

After the crowds dispersed a little I made my way to the quayside, where I was met with ice cream vans, sweet stalls and plenty of other market stalls along the river - it was great to see so many people enjoying the day.

Using a walk on the quayside as an excuse for a sweet treat, I wandered towards the Great British Cupcakery for one of their famous milkshakes. I got the Canny Caramel and it was so sweet! The brownie was incredible, really moist and not too rich, but still chocolatey and delicious.

Sufficiently stuffed, I made my way to Grey's Monument to walk it off a bit. To my surprise, I wandered into another market! It was full of stalls from different countries, including Jamaica, Greece, Spain, Germany and of course France. I did my best to stay away from the food, and luckily some beautiful flowers from a Dutch stall distracted me, and I had to snap a few photos.

I hope you all had a lovely Sunday! x

  4. Getting ex boyfriend back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. Am Maria 21yr from England, my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464.
