Forgive my lack of posting, but Santa very kindly brought this family a Wii for Christmas and we’ve hardly left the comfort of our lounge – especially as he was kind enough to have it all set up and running for us from the moment we entered the room!
I have always been a bit reluctant to bring computer games into the house – especially with the children being so young.
But this thing is a ruddy marvel.
On Christmas evening the whole family joined in a game of bowling.
Our 16-year-old nephew who usually sits and grunts in the corner, was playing with his mum: The mum he barely speaks to.
Grandma was there in her slippers knocking down strike after strike and even grandad, who is usually asleep by the time the clock crawls around to 6, was there giving it his all.
Of course, our 6-year-old thrashed the lot of us, but once we’d locked him in his room and banned him from ever joining in again, we were on a roll!
Will post again when we manage to crawl away from the tennis . . .
