Last week I was mortified because John remembered that I'd been late to his birthday party last year... So yesterday I managed to only be a little late, arriving at the same time as a set of grandparents, so I think that's acceptable. It was a fun day. I bought him some walkie talkies - which we tested. Then after everyone had gone we had a go at Operation, which was a lot smaller than I remember, but just as hard. John; "this is really hard isn't it". Me; "yes it is".
