  • A dog walks into a pub, and takes a seat.  He says to the barman, ‘Can I have a pint of lager and a packet of crisps please’. The barman says, Wow, that's amazing! You should join the circus!’. The dog replies, Why? Do they need electricians?’

  • When you get to Newcastle before the crowds to enjoy the empty streets and sunshine ☀️ I’ve had the loveliest day exploring with @laurabeasleyphotography - we took so many photographs in some lovely locations that truly show off the city at its best ❤️ So lovely working with someone who appreciates the beautiful streets and buildings of the Toon as much as me and I can’t wait to share our discoveries 👀

  • A comment on my last post got me thinking of childhood phobias. I think a fear of things like spiders, heights, snakes etc are completely normal as they stem from a subconscious desire to avoid things that potentially might kill you. Fears from your childhood are a different matter. Here are some things I was afraid of as a kid:
.
•Cobras specifically. My mum (thanks mother!) told me they would hypnotise you before they struck so you couldn’t run away. No idea if this is true or not.
•Quicksand. Anyone who grew up watching cowboy films will understand this one although I was always unlikely to encounter it in the depths of Yorkshire (or anywhere, for that matter).
•Noseybonk. A character from an 80’s British TV show. If grew up in the 80’s you’ll will know where I’m coming from on this.
•The smell of TCP. Bit niche, this one but I hated it. •Sundays. Literally everything was shut in the UK on Sundays plus I was made to go to church in the morning. It was the most boring day ever. Speaking of which,
•The theme tune from the Antiques Road Show, because it meant that Sunday (even though it was rubbish) was almost over and it was nearly time for Monday which in turn meant school.

As an aside, when my brother was about 3, he was absolutely terrified of a tiny plastic shark that we found on the beach in Skegness. I used to leave it on the sofa when he was about to sit down, even though I knew I would be in BIG trouble, but his reaction to it was just too hilarious. Sorry, Steve-o ✌️

  • What are you most afraid of? I hate spiders (all those legs and eyes. Just weird), heights (because whenever I’m somewhere high, I get the urge to throw myself off. When I visited Bedruthan Steps I literally had to commando crawl back to the car) and mushrooms/fungi (there’s a scene in Hannibal when someone discovers a serial killer was using almost dead bodies to grow mushrooms on. I nearly threw up). And most of all, I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you. Oh no, silly me, that’s Dirty Dancing (not scared of that, in fact, I quite like it).
.
If there’s one thing I’m thankful of with Instagram, it’s meant that getting ‘the shot’ has *almost* made me overcome my fear of heights although I don’t think any number of photos of mushrooms will make me overcome that particular fear, and spiders can just friggin’ do one. With that in mind here’s a photo taken from a great height, and just the fact that I’m posting it means I’m still here so yay!

  • If you’ve got young kids, you might recognise Staithes as the setting for ‘Old Jack’s Boat’, a CBeebies programme, starring TV legend Bernard Cribbins as Old Jack. I remember watching a Christmas special, written by Russell T Davies (the guy who brought Doctor Who back to life, no less), where Old Jack tells a story about the time his friend Sailor Sue proposed to him and they get married and live happily ever after til she goes and dies on Christmas Eve and leaves him all alone. I had to leave the room because I was bawling my eyes out. My kids thought I was mental.
