There can be nothing like your son's fifth birthday to cheer you up after a long and difficult week. And, as luck would have it, it happens to be Jamie's today.
Formal proceedings actually got underway on Friday evening with his party at Aireborough rugby club.
And yes, for a while, we were a little worried...
...before the guests duly arrived.
They even brought loads of presents, which made one spoilt little so-and-so even more spoilt.
But surely that's what birthdays are all about.
Catch you later - I'm going in.
