Thanks for all the birthday wishes. He got some lovely presents but there were two clear winners, the watering can from Grandad;
He has spent nearly as many hours playing with it as it took me to get it out of the box and put the damn thing together, it is huge, these pictures show the scaled down version that I put together after scratching my brain for an age. He loves it, Thomas and Percy (his very favourite) go all by themselves and much to his delight (for some strange reason) Percy goes faster than Thomas so if you set Thomas off and the let Percy go a minute later, after three or four turns round the track he can derail Thomas by butting his bottom. Oh how we laughed!!
