Happy 18th Birthday, James

It's my gorgeous son's 18th birthday on 25th June, and I'd like to wish him a truly fabulous future.

Thinking back to when this angelic looking child was small, I never imagined that he could ever turn out so wonderful. He's fun, funny, a talented drummer, and waiting for his A2 results to see if he can go to university in September. He is practically horizontal and nothing much fazes him.

We all love him to bits, except maybe for his sister, who is nearly driven mad by him. Even they manage to get along well together (on the odd occasion).

So, Happy Birthday James. Make the most of every opportunity. X

I know it's a cliche, but how did he get that old, huh? By the way, I covet your shed!

Congratulations to you and Happy Birthday to James!

And happy birthday to you too. I like to think that us moms share in our kids' birthdays. 18 is such a magic age. Congrats to you both! (Now, at 11.00, it's time to go wake my own 18-year-old son up :-) )

I hope he had a lovely day. Is he your youngest?

Are you looking forward to Caerleon? I am a bit scared about the Marina Oliver course, I must admit, but it's going to be fantastic to meet up, isn't it?
