Firstly I just want to thank everyone for your comments on my last post. We think it is the right decision that we have made and I'm looking forward to a new chapter in our lives. I'll keep you all updated as to any progressions that we make. I'm sorry if I haven't replied to everyone but it's been a bit busy.
Well, what have I been up to since my last post apart from painting, cleaning and taking stuff to the local charity shop.
On Saturday I took Baby G back to Newcastle as I had seen an Arts and Craft fair advertised. You can read my review at Northernbelles Crafts.
On Sunday we had a family day out to York Train Museum, when you consider that this Museum is free I think it is an excellent place to go and well worth the trip. You don't really appreciate the actual size of some of the engines until you are standing next to them.
The wheels are bigger than me
This train was from China. Some of the more famous trains here are The Mallard and Stephensons Rocket. There is a "warehouse" where you can go look at a lot of stored items, everything from old station signs to chamber pots that were used on trains, this was really interesting but more so for the grown ups. Royal trains with baths , beds and comfy little duvets with labels that said they were from Russia on them! It was raining whilst we were there but there is also a small kiddie park outside with picnic tables. We took a picnic and ate it at the indoor picnic area watching episodes of Thomas the Tank Engine.
I won't bore you with lots of train pics but would definately recommend a trip there. Due to the weather and the fact that with it being Sunday a lot of shops were closed we didn't really explore York itself-- think we might save that for the Summer.
Yesterday I managed to get this done - next bit quilting ( scary as I,ve never done this before either)
This morning Milo made a train... his holiday homework was to practice cutting. I did the letters for him - I don't know why he stuck them on backwards!
And here is the pic of him hugging a tree from my Park post
