We don't usually go out on Bank Holidays - if I tell you that our visitors hit the tail of the traffic queue 9 miles from here, you'll know why. Fortunately our visitors, and us, know how to get where we want to go and avoid the M3, so we did make a special trip on Saturday.
To have a picnic and see the choo-choos - and have a ride on one too. A small one, as you can see.
Unfortunately Babybel wasn't very well - a virus generously given to her by the VHC - but as you can see, the VHC had recovered sufficiently to inspect the engine carefully. He was even allowed to sit in the cab of the Eurostar 'University of Southampton', miniature version.
Since then, we have stayed resolutely at home. Wensleydale gave the ivy on the front of the house a hair cut, and I sat in the back garden and finished this,
which started life like this, then met iColorama and some printable fabric.
I like it.
What I don't like is the virus which the VHC has kindly shared with us, too. He is a very generous little boy!
