James was 4 today. A happy day spent playing with his new balance bike, and then a long involved game with his farm animals, bricks and cars. He wanted to make his own cake - carrot, orange and eggshell! It was just a bit too crunchy for me, but since there was a fair bit of butter and 4 eggs in it I managed to struggle through a fairly large piece.
Birthday tea in the kitchen, which is a bit chaotic at the moment, and then through to our newly furnished front room, to play by the fireside.
As he snuggled down in bed for the night, he thought that next year he might like a volcano of his very own, since he would be five by then. Well - who wouldn't?
