James turned 22 on the 16th July! Alas, his present was not, like last year, a narrowboat! Like last year, his birthday is just before the Bumps which means that it often seems to get a bit lost. This year, he is having two celebrations, to make sure as many people as possible can come, one on the day itself, and one on the day after. In time-honoured tradition (started by Emma when she made him a cox box cake, I have spent the day fashionong him a birthday cake (roughly) in the shape of a Russell Newbury Engine! Its been fun, if somewhat messy!
