Chaophraya: Newcastle's Newest Rooftop Restaurant

Chaophraya: Newcastle's Newest Rooftop Restaurant,

If you live in Newcastle you'll be aware that loads of new restaurants have recently opened in Eldon Square, there was quite a few that are restaurants that we already have which is a little disappointing. However there have been quite a few new places opening up for the first time in the city and last month I was lucky enough to be invited along with a plus one to the official opening of Chaophraya, Newcastle's new rooftop thai restaurant. 

Now I must apologise in advance for the quality of these photographs, I didn't want to lug my huge camera around with me all day so decided to bring along a little Nikon bridge camera that I have. But due to the ambient lighting of the venue it struggled quite a bit with lighting so a lot of the photos turned out quite blurry and generally a little bit shit. So I've included a few of the official photographs from the night so you can all see how beautiful the food and decor really is.

How to de-clutter when you have hoarding tendencies.

How to de-clutter when you have hoarding tendencies.

When a new year rolls around everybody tends to sign up for gym memberships, aims to drink more water and tries to de-clutter their homes. I'm the first to admit I am a little bit of a hoarder, I tend to hold on to pointless crap that I don't really need. It wasn't until it came to packing to move out last last year I decided it was time to have a big clear out and I got rid of all my clutter ready to start afresh. Even after we moved in and it became clear we didn't have the most amazing storage so I had another clear out and was really really ruthless with what I kept. 

This was mostly down to the fact I had just read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying and felt inspired to follow her method and see if it finally helped me to part with things. There were sections of the book I thought were a little far fetched, like the idea of thanking your belongings and folding your socks because they work really hard protecting your feet. I guess this is a cultural difference between western and eastern culture and how we view things differently. But the main principal of the book was something I could really get on bored with, only keeping belongings that make you happy or 'spark joy'.
