Last night we spent a fantastic evening at a friend's house playing games.  There were tables playing all sorts of complex, strategic games but I ended up playing Mousetrap with the kids.

For those of you who don't remember the game from their childhood, it involves building a complex mousetrap then being the last mouse uncaught by the trap.  It was hilarious and I was the cause of much of the laughter as I managed to land on the only spot that sends you back to the start 8 times in a row.  In the end a friend had to roll the dice for me to get me out of there.

Later in the evening we sat around, glasses of red wine in hand discussing our dream holiday destinations and plans for the future and I reflected on what a great place my life is at.  When a single night can include rolling on the floor with laughter over a kids game and intellectual discussion over delicious red wine, it is a pretty great night.


  1. We are having a games afternoon today with Mr Bite's brother and mother :) We have done a few over the last couple of months (some in the evening, some in the afternoon) and it really is a very fun way to spend time. Our games aren't incorporating the children variety, sadly, but are introducing me to the vast world of adult-targeted board games which are far more fun than I'd have imagined!

  2. This is awesome. I also loved trouble!! So much fun.
