Our Train Ride

Firstly I would like to apologise that I haven’t written an article in a while. I would like to tell you about a little adventure we went on. Sophia went on her first train ride.

We have been needing a bigger car for a while. It’s too much strain on my back trying to get little Sophia in and out of her car seat in our tiny Ford Ka. So we decided to sell it and get a bigger ‘Family’ car.

My wife advertised the car online while also looking for one to replace it. She found the perfect car for us in Kidderminster. It is a big 5 door estate car.

The only problem we faced was that to be able to afford the new car we had to sell our current one. It didn’t take long at all for someone nearby to snap it up and we were happy with the price we got for it.

Now we had no car and needed to find a way to get to Kidderminster from Malvern!

Luckily there is a train station not too far from where we live. It’s about a 20 minute walk. We had no choice but to walk to the train station and get a train to meet the seller. It was my wife, daughter and I all walking to the train station. I even had the car seat strapped to my back because we need it when we get the car.

The walk took us about 30-40 minutes because we had to keep stopping. It was a lot of up hill walking.

Finally we made it to the Train Station. Our train arrived just a few minutes after we did. We got on and Sophia was very excited to be on a train. We even had a change over so Sophia could experience it all over again.

Choo Choo!

We finally arrived at Kidderminster where we had a small walk to the seller.

We bought the car and changed over insurance ect ready to drive home. Sophia. bless her, had fallen asleep and we managed to get her in the car all strapped up without waking her up.

It was really strange driving this car. It felt more like a bus. That’s only because I’m used to driving a little go-kart of a car.

Sophia was really well-behaved during the whole trip. It was a nice day, the weather was great and we got to experience the train ride together and see little Sophia’s face light up.
