Oliver's new passion is Thomas the Tank Engine. He watches the TV programme, reads the books and now even has Thomas pyjamas which he loves.

As he so loves Thomas, last Sunday we took him to Brookside Garden Centre where they have a miniature railway. We took two trips on it lasting 5 minutes each. He loved every minute.

The only trouble was that when we came to get off he protested, kicking and whining!

However, he soon got over his disappointment when we bought him a Thomas place-mat...

...and took him to ride on a Thomas ride. At the conclusion of his 3 rides for £1 Hayley asked him "Are you coming to Mummy now?" He just shook his head. Another £1 was duly inserted!
