On the Table

A few weeks ago Joel's Granddad fell ill and was admitted to hospital, we are lucky enough to have a super close relationship with him and even lived with him for a year or so when we first got together. Luckily it was nothing serious but none the less it brought Joel's Dad down for a visit.

Having grown up in Newcastle but now moved away the city presents lots of memories for him and it was great driving the streets of Newy and hearing how things used to be years ago. One thing that he fondly remembers was visiting Jim's Ice-Cream Bar in Hamilton and ordering milkshakes with extra malt, so we swung by to see if it was still there.

 .... and yes it was!!! and almost exactly the same as he remembered it right down to the signs on the walls!! So if you find yourself with a sweet craving in Newcastle I suggest taking yourself down to Jim's on Tudor St and sampling some of the delicious ice-cream or even a malt milkshake - I guarantee you will not regret it!!
