Today I am making the journey north to the place of my birth, Arbroath. I am doing a cheeky pre Xmas visit to my parents, Andrew and Celli. I love this trip by train, evocative of so many childhood memories – the coast line , cities of York, Doncaster and Berwick.
I am enjoying first class treatment and looking forward to my few days with my parents.
I hope to provide a bit of Christmas cheer, buy their presents, drop in on some family and relieve a bit of driving duty off my Dad. No doubt I will go to bingo, a highlight of many a trip!
I am very fortunate that whilst both octogenarians, my parents health is fairly robust and I can still enjoy spending some precious time with them.
Dad in his nelson Mandela phase! 😜
