Christmas has crept up on again and this year we decided to take the train to visit family rather than hire a car. As the presents were already bought and wrapped at Clare's we just had a couple of cases and the dog to transport. Arriva trains decided to have a strike this Friday so we ended up travelling earlier to miss the chaos with very full trains today (Thursday). Yesterday's trip was quiet with loads of room of the train so we had a space for Ben the dog to stretch out on the floor. Ben's an excellent traveller but eagerly got off the train into the taxi to go to our daughter Clare's house. She was still in work so he had to wait to give his excited greeting! He's smelling the presents looking for his present......he likes tearing off the paper!

Hi Sue & Vic,

Merry Christmas

Nice to see you and your girls too. We thought we'd see Anne & Chas as they were heading our way but they turned around at Ellesmere. Take care, Elsie, Eric & Ben the dog
