Aunty Jan and Vinnie gave us wonderful gifts, some of an Olympic type nature for Christmas reflecting their voluntary sporting activities of recent months.
Darrell was thrilled with his rock star t-shirt with a guitar on the front and an Olympic initial D badge to wear.
Nigel got a mahooooosive bag of Olympic mascot jellies and a Olympic badge with his initial on.
….. and a Trampolining and Gymnastic Memory Game which afforded us much amusement and family fun, when we decided to give this year’s Christmas Day episode of typical Eastenders misery, doom and gloom and none festive cheer a miss!
You had to try and match pairs of cards featuring very energetic gymnastic activities .. and the person who matched most pairs was the winner.
It made my brain hurt trying to remember where I had last seen the matching card to the one I had just turned over.
…. Nigel needed a lot of help, finger pointing and prompting to match a pair …. but was very pleased with himself when he did!
But it soon became obvious that games of a remembering type nature were very much Darrell’s forte …. and from henseforth shall be known as The Magnificent Mr Memory!
