Our Skylanders Party!

IT'S SWAP FORCE DAY!

I have been planning today for some time. In fact, I wrote most of this post a few days ago so that it would not interfere with the actual day (although since Skylanders is a two player game and at least 3 of us want to play at any one time I will no doubt wind up on here waiting for my "turn"). We are SO in to Skylanders.

Today is the day that Swap Force finally got released in the UK. It's been the hot topic of conversation in this house for weeks, months even, but this week we've been counting the sleeps until Swap Force. And today we  have.....
  • Starter Kit which has been on pre-order for delivery for MONTHS
  • Dark Edition which was an after thought coz me and the Hubby really wanted the limited edition characters.
  • 4 Swappables
  • 1 Non-swabbable
  • 2 FREE LC Hex (one with each version, stashed one away)
  • 1 FREE Giant! (put away for Christmas)
  • Adventure Pack (put away for Christmas)
  • Battle Pack (put away for Christmas)


I promised the kids a little Skylanders party today, just for the 5 of us. I've been and bought a Skylanders cake from the supermarket (while scouting round for good prices on Swap Force figures) and ordered a pizza delivery for dinner. I've even bought some fizzy pop just to really push the boat out and let the kids go totally mental!

So we have a weekend of gaming ahead of us. I doubt we'll answer the phone or door to anyone (other than the pizza man) and will likely stay in our PJs for most of it too. The kids will stay up late and get over tired and bicker with each other, and us. But for the most part we'll have fun. After all, it's not often that we get a great new family treat like this. A nice early night on Sunday will see us all right for the week ahead.

Here's hoping they release a new wave of characters in time for Christmas, it would solve a lot of present buying issues!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
