Inspiring journalists

#welovedhomeed this week-Inspired by a surprising factor-the Xbox kinect we bought as a family games console this Christmas-the children have begun their own newspaper "The Weekly Watch". Just goes to show that its always the things you least expect to inspire your children that actually do. We have all thoroughly enjoyed the fun we have had on the XBOX this Christmas, showing that not all video games destroy your mind. Our favourites have been Kinect Sports, Viva Pinata and Dance Central 2, I have even waited for the children to get in bed before having a practice on Dance Central 2 (I always wanted to be a dancer when I was little, I loved musicals from an early age and love all kind of dancing, ballet, street, ballroom so I'm indulging). What else has been popular from our Christmas this year? Piper was THRILLED with her purple sewing machine, Cordelia loved her Playmobil campervan and vet's clinic, Bailey loves his gamer chair and Gadget Show gun(he went to the Gadget Show Live at the NEC in Birmingham with his best friend and had an amazing time, he's a huge fan of the show), Ruben has loved his nerf gun (Can't say we are all feeling the love of being randomly shot in various places unexpectedly though) and his Big Trak. There maybe some of you out there that had one of these the first time round? I didn't but they are a lot of fun. My only gripe is that its a bit loud, especially when Ruben programme's it to shoot 99 times, hmmmm. A lot of skill is being used to programme it though so I'm very impressed with it. Ruben had been super hyper since his birthday last month but surprised us all by sitting patiently and building his new K'Nexosaurus too.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas too!
