Nigel had Marcel round to play yesterday, but they were both in a very rambunctious mood and in order to return some semblance of calm and order to Chateau Castle Greyskull I decided that Nigel and Marcel needed a structured activity to occupy them, rather than having them running round the house and chucking lego!
So I gave them three tubes of Andy’s “millions” to count, on the pretext of my gathering information for an up and coming confectionary review.
To be honest I don’t think counting really is their forte ….. they used their fingers and toes (and noses), they asked for a calculator, and attempted several tally charts, but they never seemed to get beyond 10 without having to start again!
However, it kept them occupied for about an hour and a half, until Marcel wondered out aloud that if he swallowed several mouthfuls of the millions, one after another and then jumped up and down, if Nigel could hear them rattle inside him!
I give up!
What are they like??
