The Darkness (and a delicious meal + celebrating 2 years with my boyfriend)

13 Nov

Yesterday was fantastic. My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 2 year anniversary (<3) and we popped over to Newcastle to watch The Darkness live – and they were STUPENDOUS. A truly excellent live show. There was lots of fist-pumping and head-bobbing from my part. And a few shaky camera photos like the one above.

Before the show we popped into what’s fast becoming our favourite Newcastle food-stop: Nudo (a noodle bar). Their sweet and sour chicken is the best I’ve ever tasted (and only 6.50GBP  – or free when your boyfriend’s treating you):

It was a really lovely Saturday outing, and we finished it off with a horrid 1.5hr bus ride back to Durham Bus Station (which was still a good 20 minute walk from our house). Woe is us.

Me on the bus, hoping for it to be over ASAP.

It was all still a great night though! Can’t wait to see some more great bands soon.

    Bless- you’d better get used to long bus journeys – 1.5 hours is nothing! Try the 10-hour bus down to London… :p

    Happy anniversary!!!

      Le le, 10 hours on a bus is not-gonna-happen. Better pay huge amounts more for a plane ride / rental car / train ride than be rattled around in a bus AND having to deal with a boyfriend with a super delicate stomach…

      AWWH thanks! :) I was feeling quite queasy at that point, and very fed up of the North East English hills :P Hope you’re doing well! X

    All bits of it sound awesome! (Except for the bus ride, AND the walk!)

    Happy Anniversary!

      Yes – long bus rides and walks are the bad bits of UK life :P
      :) :)

    Hehe – good thing you don’t live in London then! 1hr min (which often turned into much longer) was my normal daily commute each way at one point!
    Congrats on the 2yr anniversary :)

      Aaaa London! Long commutes every day sound scary. Although at this point I’d rather ride a bus for an hour every day than having to walk over 30 mins each way (but that’s because I’m super lazy and Durham is doing me a lot of good with its hills and the fact that it’s totally forcing me to walk walk walk!).
      Thanks! :)
