An afternoon with the train set :)

When Monkey came home from pre-school today he was still full of yesterday’s trip to STEAM so after lunch we decided to get the wooden train set out and make a mega track.

I’ve loved train sets since I was a child.  My Dad used to have a Hornby train set and he had the track set up in our garage; my brother and I were rarely allowed to ‘touch’ it, but we loved watching the trains go round.

I was ‘advised’ by Monkey that today I was in charge of track design – this is often my job.  He tests it out to see how destruction proof it is.  Anyway, we both had fun and the afternoon flew by.  Simple, easy fun – the best kind 🙂

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
