Monday 1st day of the holidays

Good Morning everyone (or afternoon, or evening, or night)

Today is the first day of Little Red's half term
He wasn't well over the weekend.
Just a stomach bug nothing serious.
It did mean he didn't to go to a birthday party or go and stay at his Granny & Granddads.
To cheer him up and use some of his Christmas money we decided to buy him:
We bought it for the wii as we already have one 
and it would give him something to play over the holidays as well.
Problem one - if he gets stuck he then wants mummy and daddy to play it whilst he watches.
Second big problem - daddy is addicted to the game!
Third big problem - you can't play parts of the game unless you have other characters - which cost quite a bit each.
I will say this for the games developers they are very clever!  
It is a fantastic way to make money.

We didn't get up to much this weekend.
a) I'm not fit to do much
b) Ryan was ill so needed to look after him.

I did have the table set-up to do our first crafting today with
an idea of my own.
I was so excited but Little Red says he doesn't want to do that yet he wants to play.
Oh well as soon as he's in the mood we'll give it a go and post some pictures.

I did have a fantastic weekend of giveaways
