My daughter loves Thomas the Tank Engine

We have plenty of Thomas reading material in our home so it's no surprise really. And we have encouraged her a little bit because in the plethora of trains that have joined the crew since the original Thomas, there is a book and a train named after her, so of course we bought them.

She gets very excited every morning at 10.15am when Thomas comes on television. This often coincides with the time when I am feeding Rowan so we watch Thomas' adventures together.

One thing that I love about Thomas' television show is how it has brought back words that have fallen into disuse. Dowager is a great example (Dowager Hatt, the Fat Controller's mother, is a regular character).

Who would have thought that word could ever make a comeback?
