Anyway, had a great weekend - the glamorous C invited me round to stop over for tea so I'm glad I got things sorted - was quite organised for once and am mostly packed now- else I wouldn't have gone.
Anyway, my crash course in the Yu-Gi-Oh trading card game a few weeks back was put to severe test as the glamorous C's son challenged me to some 'duelling'.
Was it so wrong to beat an 8 year old so soundly? I don't think it would have helped him if I'd let him win just cos he was a kid, but as I knew he would, he started to learn really quickly (he'd made up a lot of his own 'rules' so had to get used to playing by proper rules) and by the end of the evening (and after a few little tears), he'd started to win - really can't see me beating him next time as he's a good thinker! Even got the glamorous C interested and playing with her own deck of cards (although I did laugh at her and quip that I didn't think you could play 'Strip Yu-Gi-Oh'...hehe!)
Spent the rest of the evening downing beers and gin, catching some reality TV (ie X-Factor, I'm A Celebrity...) and ended with us boogieing to some disco tunes, with the disco ball providing some 'club' atmosphere! The kids were quietly playing on the wii at this point - we weren't drunk, just enjoying ourselves!
Head did feel a bit tender the next day but we had a relaxing morning.
Finished my packing - the glamorous C has lent me a small case, which has meant that my main case isn't as full as before, even though two-thirds of the stuff in it doesn't belong to me, it's stuff for my family...
Anyway, not long to go now!
