Yesterday we visited Oxenhope Railway Station. It's part of the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway. We didn't ride the steam train because we got there too late, but we did wander around the museum. The trains are amazing, so beautiful compared to ugly modern trains.

In May there is a special 40th anniversary celebration of The Railway Children at the station. It sounds great. Cream teas and a recreation of the original trains etc, and cream teas, and cream teas...mmmmmmm, [dribble] - ;)

Afterwards, we went to a local pub/restaurant with a children's play area. I had chicken tikka masala, yummy and hubs had the largest burger sandwich I ever saw. The weather was beautiful and it was lovely to not have to cook or clean up! :) Whilst we were there we met up with our neighbour's son. He's going back to Afghanistan today, he's been on four tours of Afghanistan (and skiing in Norway with the marines - a slight change of temperature!) and has chosen to return to Afghanistan! It must be so hard on his mother, I'd be terrified - but at least we can pray for him, for his safety.

That reminds me hubs' brother and his wife are expecting their second child! So cute, it'll make me broody no doubt, :). We go down to visit them at the end of May. They were in Northern Ireland until recently (hubs' bro is in the RAF) but they've moved to a base down south. I expect they'll need to move house again though, they've only got a two bedroomed house. Moving house with a baby is hard - I remember it only too well when we moved house when Chatterbox was a few months old! Hubs couldn't get time off work, nightmare!!

Anyway, today is (children willing!) a lazy day. Church this morning, dinner is cooking and lots of resting. I'm really enjoying reading Stormie OMartian's book set - The Power of a Praying Wife, The Power of a Praying Parent and The Power of a Praying Woman. I've had the book for ages but never wanted to read it until now, it's great.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
