I think I am the only person in the EG family who does not play Minecraft. *Quick headcount… not counting Zaltu, since she is only three years old and still mastering Diego’s Dinosaur Adventure on the Wii* Yep. I’m the only one. So when I walk into the bedroom and […]
I have been bribed into Indoor Play Centre Hell. Nefarious was invited to a classmate’s birthday party at an indoor play centre: multi-level playground with soft-fall mats, trampolines, rock climbing walls… A kid’s dream! And a parent’s nightmare!!
