Today we took a trip out to a local village where I grew up, and my parents still live, Brill in Buckinghamshire to have a look at the windmill which according to 'C' looks "just like the one from Thomas!!!".
We had a lovely walk around talking about the sails and why they aren't going round any more. However 'C' did try to continually tell me we could just take out the old bits and put new ones in so it would work again! We talked about the big stones inside which are used to grind up grain to turn it into flour so we can make bread and cakes.
Then we had a race around the windmill and started playing on the hills until we started getting chilly and headed home for some warm milk and a rest!
