I was just looking at a memory stick the Mrs was playing with and up came numerous glorious photos of the Christening of my son Joshua this summer. I know many of you sent us best wishes for that day so I share just three of them
First the group photo. In case you are wondering about the location, it is a Victorian cemetery near us which is a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful spot both for its permanent residents and those, like us, visiting for the day. And yes that is my Dad at the very back on his one excursion from Warwickshire this year.
Below that is Joshua himself with his one of his godparentgs, my good friend the bear raider Lucian Miers. Should I shuffle off this mortal coil before Joshua makes one of his great decisions in life it is Lucian's job to take him to see
West Ham and make sure that he has no funny ideas about supporting Bristol City.
Finally the Mrs and I giving a speech. Naturally she had the last word. And the first. And most of the rest. Rightly so.
