Rory loves his toy vehicles and trains. He was especially impressed with this life size "digger" in the park this week. We saw it on Monday just parked up and on Wednesday it drove past us.
Also in Wednesday we saw these big machines. They have started work on Ilford station which is on the new Crossrail/Elizabeth line. The whole ticketing area/front entrance is being rebuilt so they have been demolishing it. Unfortunately there was no activity going on when we went past on the way to the supermarket - the workers seemed to be having breakfast in a nearby cafe!
This is what it looked like pre demolition. (Photo courtesy of Hugh Llewelyn via Flicker)
And an artists impression of how the new building will look.
I also took these photos in the Holocaust memorial garden on Wednesday- the area was cordoned off and had marquees up on Monday for the commemoration event. I didn't take a shot of the whole garden because it's a bit bare at the moment although a few snowdrops had poked their heads out.
And for those of us who can't get enough of this cute face:
No pictures but there are still 3 goslings and they are definitely growing!
