Next step was going on the Santa Special – what’s that I hear you ask? Well it is going from Toddington to Winchcombe on a steam train which my Dylan and godsons loved.
Dylan really enjoyed looking at the train and seeing the train drivers – who were really good at explaining their jobs. We travelled to Santa’s wonderland where we were met by the the elves. We were then taken into see Fr Christmas who spent a considerable amount of time with us. I really wanted to do this to eradicate the questions that I am batting off! I thought it would make it magical once more. And it did – well for that afternoon.
Dylan gave Fr Christmas his letter- only to be told that was the first letter he had recieved- maybe email or texting has taken over here too – or god forbid even tweeting the man himself! But nevertheless Dylan had written! After posing for the photo we headed off to collect our mince pie and coffee or squash. We then reboarded the train for our journey home.
It was a fun afternoon – but Dylan has since told me that it wasn’t the Santa – just a bloke dressed up – maybe that is it then and we have past the point of no return with Dylan- least I still have Erin to believe in the complete package.
