AS IT’S CHRISTMAS – ALMOST……
I have a busy day today – we’re going on the Santa Special! This is a special train that runs every Saturday and Sunday, from now until 21st December, on the East Lancs Railway . They even ran one on Christmas Eve when it fell on a Sunday – how magical is that? If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you may remember I did a post about the War Weekend, another event on the ELR.
Anyway, this year we are a party of 13 on the train today – MWM, me, youngest son and DIL, Kai, Nate, DIL of eldest son (he’s working), Sam, Harry, Gracie, our friends T&K and their grandson. The adults are more excited than the children because, apart from MWM and I, it will be their first time on the Santa Special. Sam has been doing this trip since he was about 18 months old with us, for Kai it will be his third year, the second time for Harry and the first time for the rest of the children. It’s a really lovely couple of hours, the train is decorated, the staff dress up as elves, fairies and snowmen, they have a brass trio playing Carols going up and down the train, and then of course Santa arrives to give the children their presents. Adults get a mince pie and a small bottle of sherry – so that’s quite nice too! I’ll try to get some photos and do a post next week time permitting, but in the meantime you can see some official photos from previous years here.
Anyway if I don’t get back online before Monday, have a great weekend and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do – which will give you loads of scope!
