First of all thank you to all of those who have been sticking by me this past couple of months, it has not been easy finding time to post a daily picture but your thoughts and good wishes for my wife have helped me to sustain some sort of output. She is now in the midst of a second series of radio therapy at Newcastle's Freeman Hospital and, although her cancer is still terminal, she is feeling much happier in herself and can, for now, swallow and eat. I am sorry that for the moment I cannot make time to visit and comment on your pages, but I'm sure I will return sometime in the future.
I did manage to take a few pictures over the past week, none of which I would call truly remarkable, but at least they document some of the things happening in my life here in South Shields.
This mural is on the end of Wouldhave House in South Shields Market Place and the whole building is now being demolished to make way for something new, I'm glad about that - it's a big ugly 1960s block of concrete and steel.
The picture on the wall tries to link to to the old South Shields coat of arms which features The Tyne lifeboat and rowers, the silly part is that the artist drew inspiration from the face of former Newcastle United and England footballer Alan Shearer for the boatman second from left
I felt I ought to document this mural before it disappears for ever.
