Well, it’s 3pm on Christmas Day and it’s been a good one so far. My new ‘toys’ now include:
- The Ashes DVDs
- The Rough Guide to Conspiracy Theories
- Rome Total War: Barbarian Invasion
- Dr Strangelove on DVD
- and Being Freddie
And like any kid on Christmas Day wondering which to ‘play’ with first, I’m trying to do all five.
So far I’ve fought a disastrous battle at Badon Hill, read Freddie’s introductory thank yous, watched the first day of the first test at Lord’s (get the bad bits out of the way), read the CT that Tutankhamun was assassinated and skipped to that great line: “Gentlemen! You can’t fight in here. This is the war room!”
Some kids never grow up eh? But I am showing some restraint: I haven’t got the retro Rubik’s Cube out of its box yet, a prezzie from Miss P. That cost me some sleepless nights first time round.
