Because we didn't need to buy a brand new bike we could get him lots of other small bits and bobs: a bike bell, a phlat ball, a skipping rope, a football and a box full of loom bands. He also asked for a "cool" back pack, which my mum got him. Isn't it great? She also got him a Super Mario beach towel, which he loves.
For his Birthday breakfast, we had waffles with maple syrup and/or chocolate spread (leftover from the cake icing). For lunch, we went to MacDonalds. For dinner we are having chicken curry. And after dinner we are starting our long trip down to Cornwall.
For me, it is a special day, too. James celebrates his third Birthday with us. This means that he has lived with us for longer than with anyone else. Here's to many more Birthday celebrations!
We are away for the next two weeks. Because I am overflowing with stuff I want to share, I have dabbled with the scheduling function in Blogger. I hope it works. I won't be accessing my computer much I don't think. I have packed three books instead, and two knitting projects (I am ever so optimistic). I'll catch up with my favourite blogs when I get back.
Have a lovely two weeks!
