My mother's family come from West Bromwich and a few relatives still live there. There's even some Irish blood a couple of generations back... :wave:

I'd had planned to go on saturday but it was pushed back to sunday. By the time we arrived, soon after midday the event was running down (it's a three day event) and aided by nearly an hour delay when nothing moved following an incident in which a lineside photographer was apparently injured and had to be airlifted to hospital. Compounded by the usual operational delays at these events it all conspired to put a dampener on the whole thing. We were up at 06.00, out of the house by eight and didn't get home till almost 11pm...

I usually park at the Bridgenorth end of the line as I find it easier to access from the M54 than Kiddy. Two weeks ago we were at the Llangollen Railway gala weekend, and whilst it's a good bit further, the experience was a whole lot nicer... The journey was the same as far as Telford, which I can usually do from home in two hours but the latest squeeze lives another half hour east of me, adding an hour to the travelling time... All in all a tiring and tedious day... :|

resigned from my job. (well it was Monday). last day with current employer is 11th April. almost 2 weeks off between old job and new job. I was tired of doing 60/70 hour weeks driving all over the place. new job is nearer home and I do 20 hours a week LESS.

I'm nervous as well as excited. :cheers:

I'd love to do that! :clapping:
sadly the family need to eat from time to time, but it doesn't stop me looking for "other opportunities"
