Cowart's Common Room

Just wanted to pop in and say hello! I've been so busy , I've not been a good Purple cooer of late and want to apologise for not getting involved with homework..........eeeeekk.
I know ......I'll put myself in the corner for detention!

Was up Newcastle way a few weeks back, went to the woonderful Angel of the North. Bit blurred but that's us in photo!

I was in Norwich last weekend we went to The Chocolate Show that my friend put on in St Andrew's hall. It was an interesting day, lots of excellent demonstrations by first class chocolatiers and lots of opportunities to sample chocolate. Not as many stall sthere selling chocolates as I would have expected but still mamanged to buy loads!
By Saturday evening i was quite queasy from all the chocolate and then had a huge Roast dinner with my parents. Think I've put on half a stone!

Well, my mum's scales said I'd put on half stone, I can't really believe them. Checked with my sister and her scales took ther hlaf stone off!
Who is telling the truth?? My sister's I hope!

Lots of love to you all . Especial welcome to our new class mates.

Westerwitch's Avatar Yup 2 grams it is and lovely to hear from you. Well if one set of scales put the weight and the other took it off then you haven't gained anything . . .

Yum a Chocolate Show - now that is amazing - I think we should have a skool trip out to the next Chocolate Show . . . so when is the next show . . .

Cait's Avatar I was only thinking about you this week and was on the point of putting out a message to see if anyone had heard from you.

(I will be joining you in detention).

Crystal Jigsaw's Avatar About 55 miles away from me. It's a huge.. erm.. thing isn't it. I really don't like it one bit.

Milla's Avatar oh I do, I adore it, and the striding straw type man down the M5. Love 'em.

Posted by: Milla on 5th Dec 2008 at 04:11PM

Oh love it. The whole site specific thing, Anthony Gormley's own body, saw the inaugral stages of the one that was at the waterside entrance of the dome, ('Son of man' was it?) when I went with eldest to AG's studio. do hope you also got to see the Blinking Eye bridge and the Sage Slug.
And Muddie, you should've let me know you were coming north, I could've met you in Newcastle Sad

Inthemud's Avatar Yes, @tm, I should have told you I was coming. But it was a fleeting visit so my Stan could visit all his old haunts around Newcastle & Ponteland, then went up to Hadrians Wall and back down to Harrogate.

Yes I do look teeny weeny in that photo, that's good!!!

AAAhhhh! After a long journey from Chicago, and a long drive up the M1/A1, we know we're almost at my mum's when we see the Angel.

Posted by: Expatmum on 5th Dec 2008 at 10:13PM

I was brought up only 5 miles from Ponteland.

Frances's Avatar Wonderful to hear from you, Muddie, and always wonderful to hear anything about chocolate!

Hoping to have some more reports from you soon. xo

Camilla's Avatar Hello Muddie, I am way behind with homework too, I must catch up with it. How lovely to have visited Harrogate, went there years ago and loved it.

Pleased you got to sample all those delicious chocs, and so sorry I did not get to meet you in Norwich Muddie. Thank you for your message, I will PM you Muddie.

Angel's Avatar Hi Muddie

Good to hear from you.

I used to love Harrogate-haven't been for years. There was a lovely 'Bettys' tea room if I remember correctly.
Last time I went to Northumberland I passed the 'Angel'-didn't have time to stop but I found it amazing-couldn't take my eyes off it which is not good when you are driving!

Re the homesowrk-I should not worry-everyone here understands.
I am so behind with homework I will never catch up so have given in! So busy with kids, plays and eldest has Mock GCSE's for next 2 weeks!

Take care
Bye for now

Withy Brook's Avatar So that's where you have been - pinching our Angel Twisted Evil
We could have had a real proper Coo gathering if you'd let us know! I live 12 miles from Ponteland - next time?
