September is possibly my favourite month of the year, which softens the blow of our summer holidays being over.  The good weather of late August carried on into early September – Nick missed it by being in Hong Kong for two weeks.

  1. September is my second favourite month of the year. May is my first love, even though the weather isn't as reliable as September.

  2. I'm sure my brother-in-law would have been in his element at the model engineering society... the addition of fish and chips would certainly have clinched it!

  3. Now.... that answers the smile your Dad always seems to have... he's a steam enthusiast... the hobby that keeps men eternally young!
    Model engineering should be on prescription.

  4. We had a neighbor in San Diego who had an amazing outdoor model steam engine. I had no idea you could ride them at that size. Amazing.
