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?

TIA

Every self respecting 10 year old lad should get a United shirt with 'Giggs' 11 on the back

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

Crashie, can you not send him on one of those activity breaks (PGL used to do them).  Might get him into that sort of thing and be a bit more active rather than getting square eyes.

Archery?

Little less yobbish than air rifle

fencing?

dangerous and really expensive

A powerful catapult.  On the off chance he then takes up fishing, I mean.....

Lurker's right - you should have seen the injuries I got from putting up 6 panels of weatherboard recently. Oh, and the price......!!
