Did you know….when the Dartmouth and Torbay Railway opened on 14 March 1861 it passed over a level crossing on Tanners Lane, which led to the sea at Goodrington. Building the line across the marsh at Goodrington proved difficult but was achieved by laying redundant pipes from the failed atmospheric railway between Exeter and Newton in the ground for drainage.
The steam train runs right alongside the beach at Goodrington Sands and the driver and fireman never tire of waving to everyone on the beach as they make their way towards Churston! 🚂
Trying my hardest not to bring any Christmas into the feed just yet, but after seeing @lastchristmasthemovie yesterday at the cinema I’m feeling festive and I can’t wait to get all the cute Disney Christmas outfits together 😍🎅🏻
Off out to do some more festive fun later on today, ahh I’m excited for Christmas this year which makes such a change to just wanting to by pass it last year 🙈
Probably the fact that we are off to Berlin for the Christmas markets 🎄 which is a fave thing to do and the fact I get to do cute festive things with my boyfriend 💏
What festive activities are you guys getting up to over the Christmas period?
Mrs Whizzy will be running the London Marathon next April 🏃♀️ She will be running for a charity close to her heart, Children with Cancer and her target is to raise £2000. To help boost fundraising she has organised a wreath making event on 5th December at 8pm.
Spaces are limited to 15 people and the majority of funds will go to Children with Cancer. The cost is £55 which includes your decorated wreath to take away as well as drinks and nibbles! 🥂
Lucy from @therealchristmasco is very kindly doing a special price and will host the event at her house in Raynes Park and will guide you through the process so that you leave with a fabulous wreath for your door!
Please email Mrs Whizzy at firstname.lastname@example.org asap if you would like to join. Looking forward to a fun, festive eve 🎄

Meet Jack Frost...my first wreath of the festive season...also meet my new beautiful "front door" 😁
Don't look too closely though...the impatient bit of me couldn't wait for the door to dry out properly, so now I have a lovely crackle-glaze effect in the paint work, and probably a good few brush strokes, paintbrush hairs and runs...and despite the colour being a total surprise (I thought the tin had a dark navy blue in it), I love it 😍😁 I think shows Jack Frost off a treat...and just wait to see the wreath I made today hanging on it - it's a stunner! 💃
For those of you wanting a bespoke piece of Rose & Rhubarb wreath-ery, Jack Frost is the large (16" base) size. The one I will post a pic of tomorrow is the standard 12" size. The "front door" is a regular external door size. Hope that helps! I'm taking limited orders for the next week x
