Yeah. Don’t Say THAT To Your Revising Teen (or Anything Else, Frankly…)

Please. If you value your health and/or sanity, just don’t say THAT to your Revising Teen. Ever. Teenagers. Bloody hell they’re tricky, right? I mean, don’t get me wrong, they’re adorable creatures – funny, smart, opinionated, interesting, purveyors of marvellous new music, sources of most excellent YouTube funnies, genuinely brilliant company, … but also as predictable as a cat in a force ten gale...

Create Your Own Happy Review

Happy It’s such a simple little word. And yet it feels like our modern kids are less happy then they’ve ever been. How has that happened? How have we gone from carefree 12yr old out on their bikes to 12yr olds...

Family Game Night Games – Dixit

We’ve been determined for months now to start playing regular Family Game Night Games. So when Asmodee got in touch and asked if we’d like to receive a selection of Family Game Night Games, I’ll admit I bit their hand off. Finally, I was going to HAVE to get organised and sit down for some serious fun with the whole family; and it wouldn’t even be Christmas or on holiday!(you can see last week’s review of Catan here) Dixit was a...
