Monday = Isabella Day (42)

Slightly out of order on a busy week - a posting for last weekend will follow, but the pressure of various appointments, the (attempted) mastering of a new Samsung S23 phone, not to mention other gadgets, vetting TGO Challenge routes, etc, etc, have rather delayed the sorting of photos etc.

The picture above shows Isabella striding into the Science and Industry Museum, where there's lots of hands on stuff for youngsters.

Meanwhile, below, Jacob (11) is pictured with his mate Seb - they are members of the award winning Rossendale Under 13 relay running team. Well done lads, it looks like quite a big awards ceremony.

Back to the museum, and Isabella is working her way through the various exhibits. Luckily she thinks the item in the next picture is just a wheel to turn, not a gadget that requires money to be inserted to create a small medal. Next time perhaps.

She soon worked out that putting her hand over the air blower made the balls drop to the floor.

There were several exhibits involving colours - this one shows how new colours are created from mixing prime colours.

I think the magnets were a bit of a mystery to her.

Before we left, we admired this magnificent Rolls Royce.

The walk back to the station at Deansgate was punctuated by watching some workmen dismantle a temporary structure that looked as if it was made of railway sleepers.

We love the tram journeys.

Lunch was duly consumed. Every last bit.

Then after an hour's nap, Thomas had a starring role on the Timperley railway track.

There was lots of crashing and rescuing going on, then a short pirate video from an old CD that we found - the Thomas tapes failing due to the old age of either the tapes or the player.

Then it was time to go home. We look forward to your next visit, Isabella.
