I just got home from about and hour and a half walk around Boldon, and it was amazing. Why is something worth making a big deal out of? Because the whole time I didn't see another person! Whilst that might sound like an awfully antisocial thing to say, after a year of living in London it's definitely a much needed and relaxing change of pace.
However this walk was also freezing so I'm off to watch more Mad Men, preferably under a duvet.
