Today is my 24th birthday.
I’m home. I love being home. I thought I’d share some of the artwork from the region with you guys, it’s all over the train station, and it really shows our industrial roots :)
I’m the proud owner of some summer running gear, a new Walkman (I’m sweating my iPod to death on runs so I wanted a back up, but now I may continue to kill my iPod and use the walkman for normal stuff…).
My birthday cake was a triple chocolate brownie layer cake, so basically I’m in food heaven.
Gluten free living starts on Monday. I’m dreading it.
I am a fan of both DC and Marvel, but I’ll be honest with you, I’m probably going to download Batman v Superman. Trailers, for me, determine whether I’m going to put money towards a film, and the only thing that persuades me to watch it so far is Henry Cavills biceps, which, believe It or not, is not quite enough.
Anyway, I’ve had a lovely day, and I managed to sneak in a bit of work too, I hope yours was equally as nice :)

Thanks to everyone who joined the Teesside People’s Assembly (TPA) party at this weekend’s #EndAusterityNow demonstration. We took a coach full of people from Hartlepool/Middlesbrough and other TPA activists joined the Durham/Darlington coach or travelled down by train.
The demo was a huge success. The Guardian reports a turnout of 70,000 to 150,000. The Mirror claims 250,000. Whatever the number, it was big.
We have posted photos from the demo, many featuring TPA activists, on our Facebook page. You should be able to access these even if you’re not registered with the Facebook website:
