I haven't been to Newcastle since the late 1970's. I took my youngest daughter there for the fitting of a bridesmaid dress that had been sent up from a shop in Berkshire. (We were living in Teeside at the time)

Had a great time there untill DD was suddenly hit with excruciating stomach pains and we ended up in A & E at Newcastle General. After much anxiety and endless tests we were informed by a VERY twinkly eyed Irish Paediatric Consultant.....that it was wind! blush
