A New Dawn

A Season for PJS and Slippers
Christmas 2020 was a festive season like no other I remember. We were given a brief respite from lockdown and I was lucky to see my family. Those few short family days confirmed my determination to stay safe so that I can enjoy these precious times again.
Chinese Chequers with the girlies.
Scrabble is another favourite. To our shame, the only non native English speaker at the board was the winner.
If you like boardgames and you are looking for some new ones to play in lockdown, I’d recommend Rummicub. It’s suitable for all age groups. We love Dixit too. This is definitely one for lovers of cryptic clues.
