Happy Birthday Emily

Emily and the giraffe 2006Happy 3rd birthday to Emily, who spent the day mostly on my shoulders telling me which animal enclosure to head for next at Twycross Zoo. I was quite happy with this arrangement; the drawback of going to the zoo on a hot day is that most of the animals are asleep in some shady corner, where 3–year old children can't quite see them, but most of all it meant that my head was kept nice and shaded in the 23deg heat.

She loves her new bright orange slide (I am more circumspect – it clashes with my green fence). Her bouncy castle is ace though, and she's been whizzing round like Jenson Button on her scooter. We can often judge the success of a day by how quickly Emily goes to sleep in the car on the way home – it took her about 10mins today, which means she had a great time. Us too. :–)

Emily meets Thomas the Tank Engine

Writing about web page http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/ChrisSimmons/

We had a great day out yesterday when we went to meet Thomas the Tank Engine and some of his friends at Shackerstone Station (near the Bosworth Battlefield site). We were greeted with a whistle by Percy…

and saw Toby as well…

After a short while, the star of the show himself appeared, puffing into the station…

and the Fat Controller caught a big fish in his water tank…

then we got onto the train Thomas was pulling so he could take us to Shenton and back, where he stopped for a few minutes before puffing back again. At the other end, we ran into some more of Thomas' friends.

Finally, after lunch and a cup of tea, it was time to head for home. We waved goodbye to the trains and spent the journey home fast asleep. Daddy left it until he got home to do the same. Too much fresh air he said.

Goodbye Thomas
