So pleased to have been selected to win a copy of Sandy Bennett-Haber’s new book:“You Won’t Remember This” 20 tales from around the world about journeying with a baby.
Read my winning blog post below:
My Dad worked on the railways when I was a child. Back in the day when the trains had individual compartments with sliding doors, red velvet seating and rope-work luggage racks.
My Dad would tell us to hide in the racks as he could hear the ticket inspector coming (suggesting he had only tickets for himself and my mum).
We lay there in the stringy hammocks stifling our giggles while my Dad held a conversation with the Inspector about how terrible it was that folk dodged their fares.
It was years later before I realised the Inspector was a workmate and my Dad got free rail travel for all of us as a perk of his job.
My children are grown up now but I have a tiny grandson that I know will be travelling loads in the future. I’d love to read the book and pass it on to my daughter in her first year as a mum.
