I met up today with Lisa from Hollybobbs, I have not seen her in 14 years since we left school. I have to admit although very excited I was also slightly nervous. My eldest daughter was beyond excited as she wanted to see the trains. We went to Kirklees light rail to ride the steam train.
The girls watched as the train pulled into the station.
My youngest could not work out what it was and my eldest was really excited to get on the train. We had a lovely 25min or so scenic ride and back again. When we got back to the station I found it difficult to get the girls away from the trains.
I soon worked out that bribing would allow me to move them from the platform.
After promising swings and slides my daughter was ready to leave the platform.
My daughter loved playing with H and my youngest loved sharing her lunch with J. I am not sure what I was so nervous about. The girls and I had a really lovely day out and it was so nice to go and see the trains and catch up with friends.
This day I love the unexpected
