The Flying Scotsman
Tony and I have had a smashing day. This morning we visited Shildon Railway museum to see the Flying Scotsman.. I was stunned at the majesty and size of some of the trains there. I was extremely moved when I stood next to the train that carried the coffin of Winston Churchill. If you are even slightly interested in trains then I would highly recommend visiting the museum...Entry is free and you can take your own picnic or have a light lunch in the café there.
This evening we have enjoyed our usual ceilidh. It started and finished early today as it was aimed at families. A few children were there and they seemed to have great fun. I am now having a very chilled glass of wine to cool me down. The heat is really getting to me and I won't sleep if I don't cool down a bit.
