I should first report that the train travel all went remarkably smoothly, with everything running on time and no engineering works to be seen anywhere. Amazing.
Here's a flavour of what we got up to, so you can appreciate (if not sympathise!) with my state of exhaustion:
- Imperial War Museum, in Salford, on Saturday morning was really excellent - the kids particularly enjoyed The Animals' War exhibition and got a lot from it
- Climbing Wall in Warrington later in the afternoon - kids absolutely loved it!
- Firework display on Saturday night at our hosts' house - again, the kids loved it all
- Cycling around Risley Moss Local Nature Reserve on Sunday morning
Of course, this is not to mention the inescapable socialising that occurs when you haven't seen friends for a while - especially after said-children are all safely asleep :-)
Back to work tomorrow for a rest :-))
