Day 54: York’s National Railway Museum

on February 23, 2012

Today has pretty much been one big smile, at least during daylight hours, this evening has been a swirling whirlwind of reading & critique against the clock.

This morning I created pack ups from days gone by, beef paste & jam sandwiches with fruit & other sugary goodies and took myself and the Brothers Thing to the Railway Museum.

First mission of the day: get to York. My word they chose bad times to do roadworks around here. A 25 minute drive (and as off-peak as I could get it) took 45 minutes to comnplete. Along with questions like ‘why are there signs for reindeer?’ And statements such as ‘Mummy, I like the Hump Hump song now, Daddy doesn’t like coz he’s a boy’ (I’m sure Rizzle Kicks are heartbroken).

Mission 2: Board a bendy bus to get to the museum. Gosh that was a tad touch and go too. We barely scraped getting on a normal coach! But thankfully we got on the bendy one the boys’ hearts were set on.

Mission 3: Getting off at the right stop. Alas, I failed. And we wound up at the wrong stop. Although this meant we did get to see the ‘Wheel of York’. We are all in agreement we don’t want to go on it.

Mission 4: Get to NRM. We got there in pretty good time. Thing 1 was our official tour guide. ‘This is The Rocket, it’s my favourite’ ‘this is a big wheel, it goes round’ and ‘they do huckling here’ got to love a school trip.

Mission 5: Eat our pack ups. We did this is 2 sittings. One watching a film about the Flying Scotsman engine and the rest outside later on.

Mission 6: Buy memorabilia in the shop. On the way to the shop we picked up a stray in the form of The Husband, and then promptly, and literally, walked into Michael Grade – that was my day sorted. Boys armed with some pocket money came home with trains, binoculars, whistles and a torch.

Now it’s all done and dusted for another Half Term. The Husband has them tomorrow as I’ll be office bound and after today’s exceedingly mild temperatures I’ve slapped on my 1st coat of fake tan! Let watch those streaks develop!

Today’s activities: pretty much all made me smile. Especially having a door held for me by Sir Michael Grade!!! Wowzers. 🙂
