Yes, I know that we've only just had Bonfire Night, but this is the story...
Squeaky (girl, 7) and Squawky (boy, 10) live with the Dragon (my ex-wife) in a dark cavern in the deepest Midlands. Every year, they write a Christmas list; every year, the Dragon and her family buy the best presents on the list before I get to see it; every year, I have to come up with something good that isn't on the list.
Last year, someone (Lurker, as memory serves) recommended one of those marble-track-thingies, which went down a storm; LDB suggested the Dangerous Book for Boys, which was also a hit...
I'm trying to avoid more bloody computer games...
soooooooo, what ideas have you wonderful people got this year?
The boy being 10 anything that looks a danger to windows, persons, pets etc always goes down a strom.............
Or my 1st dentist kit? Start em young.
Nice website, kk!
TT, I wish you were right (Coops likewise)...I'm desperate to find something that will drag Squawky away from Star Wars Console Games and into something that might get him into trouble/dirty/(mildly) injured etc. The lad needs an interest, but I'm bolloxed if I can find anything that he really takes to at the moment
Little less yobbish than air rifle
dangerous and really expensive
I want one of those?
Another site? maybe bypass the gift of buying someone a goat or the cats arse pencil sharpener?!
