Coach D to the power of 3

Step Mum arrived home late last night with additions for the model railway.

We now have 3 standard class coaches (different numbers but all labelled 'D'!) and one first, for our fGW HST - probably the most emotive of the purchases we have made to populate the 'Land of make believe', since it was the train that brought you to us - and took you away again.

I got out the model of the sea wall which you and I made a start on last summer, to put it on...

The wall needs some stonework, and the beach some fresh sand, but I am reluctant to do it without you. My own model, when I have the chance to build it, will also feature a little boy on the beach, watching the trains go by.

You remain in the forefront of my thoughts, little mate. Lots is going on which I can't speak of just now, but which will become apparent soon enough.

Meantime, spare a thought for Step Mum, who again was up early this morning to catch a train from Paddington, from where you took your leave of us, seemingly for good, last year. She sent me a text to say she was in coach D, too...

We miss you. We always will.

Love from Daddy

Bear necessities

Given all the bombarding we get by adverts that feature (mostly single and rather dizzy, or known coke-head) Mums, I saw this on the telly the other night and immediately thought I should share it. Well done, Sainsburys, If I wasn't so pressed for time today I could edit a sequence of pictures and videos of our own, to match.

Only thing is, they'd be a year out of date.

Anyway, in the week that REM split up (and I was only talking about them the other day, wasn't I!), this one goes out to the Dads. Have a great weekend with your children, if you can.

Love from Daddy
