Well I have to say its been cold lately hasn’t it? My other half went on facebook last friday and found out that home had a huge snowfall, how upset was I, well very, quite intolerable that day. I didn’t mean to be but I love snow and it was typical that I was on holiday when we get it, might of not helped that I got a text from my work colleague saying how much I would of loved the stress that day, grrrrrrrrrrr.
Anyhow scroll onto Saturday and we had such a lovely snowfall! Not allot but just enough, it made me super happy. Even better that we decided to go on the Great Central Way that day, whats better than snow and trains!! It made the day very magically, I felt that I was on the train to Hogwarts lol! We managed to get 4 journeys out of the day and we managed to freeze most of faces and hands of!!
A bit of back story, my other half’s dad likes steam trains when he was young so when he brought up Michael and his sister, they did allot of train spotting when kids which brought on, depending how you look at it a natural love for steam trains, and yes one day we will be that weird couple which has a train set outside in the garden lol. I don’t mind his love for steam trains there is something so romantic about them, I think it helps that we have always had steam trains at home, mind you not as big (I had such a shock my first time over here looking at the trains!) Might also help that I bought my first 00 gauge train this holiday, it’s very cute!
Super nerd mode on, even bought a layout magazine to see how to make a layout for it! Thinking of making one to keep under the bed! Super nerd mode off.
Anyhow onward with the photos, sorry there is allot!
You can see how much snow was on the track due to you not being able to see the sleepers!
A must his and her photo’s!
One of the best things about the day is that the other half’s dad was trainspotting and taking photo’s of the trains that day, so he manged to get a couple of us on the train, which was kinda easy as we spent most of the train journeys with our heads out of the windows lol, took a bit of coordination though.
And because seriously how could I not put this up, makes me laugh every time I see it, official crazy person on board!!!!
And one of Michael’s dad!
And because it looked magical, when we were driving down I kept looking up, felt like Narnia!
The field’s from the trains.
In other news, I’m going to Cadburys world tomorrow, I’ve been such a child getting excited about it, cannot wait to share my tour with you when I get back, if I can stop myself scoffing all the chocolate lol
Till next time, Hugs
