An interesting weekend ahead.

This weekend will be a busy one at the railway, with the three day running of Flying Scotsman.

Now I am aware that some people who read this blog when it was just my musings might not know what Flying Scotsman is. So here is a picture of it at the railway last year.






All seats are booked and it will be non-stop through the station.

Just to add to the excitement there is heavy rain forecast for Sunday and one of the two car parks is full of travellers.

So all in all an average weekend.

Personally I reckon I am getting too old for all the excitement, but we shall see, as long as the visit earns money for the railway then that can only be good.

Burning calories the easy way.

Now those of you who know me will know that I love technology, especially if it makes things either easier or effort free.

Well I noticed mid morning that my fit-bit watch said that I had burnt 1256 calories since midnight. To say I was impressed would be an understatement, I thought just imagine how many I would have burnt if I was actually wearing the Fitbit!

This modern technology is impressive!

No jokes by the way about me having a fit-bit!!

Two into one.

I know, I know I have not posted for some time, well that hopefully will change.

Many of you know that up to now I have written two blogs, this one and also one covering my volunteering on a heritage railway.

I have closed my railway blog, I think it had run it’s course and I want to concentrate on this one and expanding it, if for no other reason than to keep me amused!

So watch this space as they say for more postings.
