I've been living in Gateshead for about a year and a half now. Sometimes, I forget how pretty my surroundings are, and how lucky I am to live here. Today I decided to go for a long walk around the neighborhood (I haven't done this in ages!). I took my camera with me to take a few pictures. I was out for a few hours, and it was soo good to feel the wind in my face! I have been locked in the house since Friday, so it was good to go out for a change. To be honest, with the amount of work I had to do at home including cleaning up the house, doing laundry, cooking and meal prepping for the week ahead, organising files and documents, and other fun things, I don't really see how I would have managed to do much more. I mean, days are still only 24 hours long, right?
I was frustrated during the weekend because I had so much to do, but thankfully, this was a bank holiday weekend. Which gave me one more day to organise myself and get stuff done. It is now Monday and I am sitting down with a cup of tea writing about my day.
Gateshead is very pretty. I am not in love with every single neighborhood, but I have to say I absolutely LOVE where I live. Just by the river, close to town, I have everything I need right here. The thing I love the most about living here (apart from the little café down the street that serves AMAZING food and drinks every single day), is the proximity to the river. I live literally about 50 steps away from the Riverside and I love it! Every time I go for a run, I love to have the river right next to me, watch the birds fly and the sun go down in the evenings. I have seen some pretty amazing sunsets here. And I love it!
I also love my neighborhood because of the cute little houses. I love the design and I would love to be able to afford a house right here. The houses are my favourite part about this neighborhood. I love how small and cosy they look from the outside. I love all the gardens and flowers.
