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!

It sounds like you'll have a wonderful time!

Hello, This train trip really sounds like a lot of fun. I managed to get about 8 of the songs, 2 of them were carols I was not familar with, along with the example. I thought I was not going to get any of them, (from the example). I was beginning to think you sang different songs than I did, but it seems not. I didn;t get back in time to e-mail answers but I eagerly await the next Quiz. Have a fun weekend.

storyteller said...

Enjoy yourself! Sounds like great fun. I‘ll try to stay out of trouble this weekend, but it seems to follow me these days. (LOL) Thanks for the feedback and the "reward" badge. I hope I didn't steal your thunder with my Christmas Carol Quiz at Small Reflections. I didn't realize this was part one with a part two to follow.
FYI -- Mary made a cool Award for my quiz and there are 15 days left to play if anyone out there cares for another go with different carols :)
Hugs and blessings,

Akelamalu said...

We did Cindy.:)

Shame you didn't get your quiz answers in bankerchick, better luck next time.

Storyteller my quiz did say part 1, and it's the first of 3. I didn't mind you pinching the idea, but I'd appreciate it if you didn't promote yours here on my blog in case you have chosen the same carols as me. Thanks. :)

Linda said...

Well, heck, my answers are still sitting in draft form in my email box. Oops! Guess I had better pay better attention on Part 2!

That train sounds like wonderful fun. Have a jolly good time!!

storyteller said...

Whoops! I apologize ... and if you want to trash my comment, feel free :)
Hugs and blessings,

Dan said...

I love trains. I hope you had a terrific time.

The train ride sounds perfect for this Holiday season. Where did you do your reiki training/atunement? I had an employer who used to practice reiki. We've since lost touch with each other. I found it to be facinating. If I'm the Lisa on the list of Christmas carol winners, my blog address is:

la bellina mammina said...

Sounds like a funtastic time - bring me along next time:-)

Akelamalu said...

What a shame you didn't send them Linda, I'll probably do part 2 of the quiz on Thursday so try that one.

Storyteller - no problem. :)

Thanks Travis x

I wondered where you'd got to Marmie - hope everything's OK?

It was Misty, glad you enjoyed the quiz.:)

Glad you enjoyed the quiz Ciara. Your day out with the girls sounds like fun. :)

We did Dan thanks. MWM loves trains more than he loves me!

Yes I think that's you on the list Lisapizza sorry I couldn't find a link for you but I'll put it up now. My Reiki teacher is the DIL of my friend, she taught both MWM and myself Reiki 1, then I did Reiki 2 on my own with her. Are you thinking of learning Reiki?

Bella - you're back! I missed you and you can come with us next year for certain. xx

Mary said...

You will have a great time. I know my boys would just love to do this. We don't have anything like that around here. Lots of light festivals but nothing really unique.

I had fun with the Christmas Carol quiz. Thanks for hosting it and thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit.


Mother of Invention said...

Think I got all the carols but I'm sure Part 2 and 3 will be more challenging!

Akelamalu said...

We did have a great time Mary this is the 6th year we've been. Hopefully I will get time to upload some photos and do a post soon. Glad you enjoyed the quiz.

Akelamalu said...

Well done MOI, I'll be posting part 2 soon, hope you'll have a go. :)

Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.
