googly eyes

We've probably had one of the most restful Easters on record.. considering that it's reputed to be the busiest weekend of the year for traffic, we decided to restrict our travels to the local vicinity. Memorial park (as I'm sure I've mentioned before - it's our park of choice for just such a reason) was almost deserted, so we enjoyed kicking a football around and cavorting around the playpark.

We also popped over to see our talented friend Tamara this afternoon. She has a collection of miniature Smurfs that, unlike Transformers and My Little Ponies, haven't been regenerated, so I think they retain a charm for children today much like the original Dinky toys from when I was little. Suffice it to say, the children loved them (and in fact, Lenni specifically asked for them, recalling having played with them on our last visit, but being unable to remember the name!)

Since blogging about 'Tanks' in a previous entry (I have to say, 2dplay.com's version is one of the most fun I've seen) I resurrected Worms Armageddon to show Chris what Beth and I used to play.. not the most romantic of courting activities, but it seemed to work! To get it to run on Windows XP, we had to apply an update but it was fairly painless and worth the hassle. While Beth and Lenni are out tomorrow, we're going to try a multiplayer game... boys and their toys, eh?

Speaking of which, completely out of the blue, Christopher asked me to take a photo of him this morning. After sending it to his computer, he made this: three.flash-gear.com/eye/eye.php... - most amusing!

Back to work on Wednesday... there's a lot to talk about. If my boss is back from leave, anyway!
