Day Out In Leicester : What I Wore : Train Curtains?

Then there were 4 again…

My Son has been home for round 10 weeks after he finished this year at Uni and today our 2nd eldest has flown the nest again…

This time he will be hundreds of miles away and we will not see him again until Christmas unless we some how get chance to see him around his Birthday in November. 

Onto pastures new as he has a work placement for a year with a top and amazing company. 

He even has to update his passport as he maybe flying all around the world once he has settled in. How cool. We are so proud of him. 

I can not wait to hear more about his work and progress. If he does well he may even go back down there to work for them after his last year of Uni. 

What I love most was, he wanted this job and he went full of confident at his interview and got it. Now if this was me, I would crack and get shy. I really suck at interviews. Not sure why but I do. Something I need to work on, methinks!!

Over the Summer holidays we kept ourselves very busy. Lots of days out here and the occasional holiday’s there. All good fun.

We really enjoy getting out on the train. So much less stress than driving.

  One day we hopped on the train for a day out in Leicester. It made a lovely change as we had never been here before.

Me, my youngest Son and Daughter made a fun plan to meet my eldest son and go out for the day. I had not seen him for a few weeks at the time, so it was lovely catching up with him.

So many things to talk about. He has moved house and did a bike ride from London to Paris raising money for Breast Cancer Now. We also went to visit his new house in Loughborough on the way home. It is really nice.

On this day two Sons when around catching Pokemon and me and my Daughter enjoyed a spot of shopping. My Daughter enjoyed it more than me as she came home with two new dress and a pair of shoes.

We watched some street music that seemed like hours waiting for the boy’s playing Pokemon. The music sounded great. They were playing the theme music to Kevin and Perry, such a catchy tune and we loved watching some random man dancing to the music. He was really enjoying dancing and the crowds were all enjoying it too.

For some reason my youngest two kept laughing at my skirt. Not sure why they thought it looked funny as I love it!! Like an old lady skirt or something?

Then my youngest Son said;

‘Why did the train we came on have no curtains?’
‘Because Mum is wearing them!!’

Great, they thought my skirt looked like train curtains!! They were laughing all day with that joke. Kids eh!?

Not going to stop me wearing it again thought, as I really liked it.

Looks like train curtains to you? Ha!!
