Good evening

It's hard to believe but I have been a non-smoker for 2 years


I am very pleased with myself and will keep encouraging friends to quit too.

Another holiday snap to share
a pair of Egrets near Looe

On a different note;-
Our local rail depot (Etches Park) had an open day, so we dragged Mawgan along kicking and screaming (well she a misery face on till she spotted the ice-cream).
There was a re-railing demo (not often rail staff are allowed to derail a vehicle). It was quite interesting, although Mawgan was disappointed they weren't using the rail-crane.
We watched them turn wheels on the lathe.

But this was my favourite from the day
 This model was amazing, the detailing is truly admirable. It is actually a model of the first diesel loco built in Britain, but more importantly, the first diesel built here in Derby.

Well, now that I have bored you with nerdy train stuff I shall go get some much needed sleep.
Back soon with our Eden Project adventure

Quick Update

Goodness, it's been a while since my last post.

So, we have been for a lovely holiday in Cornwall. We stayed in Polperro.

Here Mawgan and Graham are checking out some rockpools
Mawgan managed to spot this tiny chap sitting on some seaweed
But what really made her day was when we came across this place in Looe
Not often you see the correct spelling.
It was a wonderful holiday. It's been so long since we had a proper getaway. Graham and I even got to do a bit of geocaching.
We also visited the Eden project, it was amazing. Although the rainforest biome is not for the faint hearted, while we were there it hit 26 degrees celcius with 90% humidity. We also had to dodge the T-Rex that was running around scaring little kids.

But it wasn't all sun and sand, I managed to whip up a Beanie & Booties set for one of the girls at work

Her sister had a little boy, so I rushed to add the blue edging and little anchor.

Well, it's been a long day and there is still one work day left this week.....

Good Night
