Meet the plastics and old skool Pac-Man – Living Arrows week 5 2020

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

Each week I like to (try and) link up to a series called Living arrows which is about celebrating childhood. You can find out more here

Just lately we have really got back into the practise of playing games together and I love it. Most of the time. Don’t get me wrong it can head south pretty quickly if a certain someone starts to lose (no, not me…) but in the main it’s a nice way to spend some time together. MrG got this retro beauty down from it’s dusty hiding place and Moose loves it!

The best board games are the ones that don’t take long to set up and are easy to play. This one definitely ticks all boxes. It’s nice that MrG has quite a few fun things from his childhood. I have the odd bit but being the eldest of 5 meant that most of mine was passed down to my siblings when we were still young.

Bess and I popped to a local shopping centre this week. We had a bit of time to kill so we went for a browse for pretty dresses, as you do. Bess thought that these mannequins reminded her of “the plastics” from mean girls so of course she wanted to get a photo – I love it when she lets her inner goofball out. I might have to go back and buy those boots on the middle mannequin…
