Yesterday afternoon I took Rick for a walk while Paul did the washing up. I think I got the better end of the deal. When I got back we settled down to watch some television, Peter Pan Gone Wrong and then the Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Sarah slept through the film; she is still fighting the jet lag. I’m not sure what my excuse was, probably too much turkey.
Today we had another feast at lunch time, cold meats and salad, mince pies and a selection of cheeses. Why do we eat so much food at Christmas time? To ensure no-one fell asleep this afternoon we decided to play a game of Scrawl. This seems to be a combination of Pictionary and Chinese Whispers, best played after a drink or two.
You select a card that gives you an obscure phrase or word and then you have to draw it. The drawing is passed to the next person to describe it. The next person draws that person’s description etc. until you end up with the final description. Confused? Yes, so was I. Here is an example of Paul’s “Stealing Someone’s Thunder”.
