Splat!! An Afternoon of Games and Mess…

OK, this isn’t what you expected from a post about ‘Gaming’, but here’s the story:

A dreaded bug had swept through our house, rendering H and Daddy asunder. H spent two days in bed (this is so unlike him, nothing usually keeps him still), and Daddy blacked out in the garden and hit his head off the wall! Oh dear, it was a disastrous week. Now Mummy’s back is so poorly as she’s had to be nurse to the sick, as well as all the usual stuff.

Then Uncle G came to take Toby for the day to give us a break, and his car nearly set on fire on our drive! There was so much smoke we didn’t know what to do! Fun and games indeed.

So, to calm things down a bit and aid our respective recoveries, we decided to have an afternoon of playing games, only the game of choice happened to be ‘Splat!’, a pie in the face game. Well, it raised a laugh, that’s for sure, so I decided to film it to share the fun with you. (Look at the dark circles under Hugo’s eyes – he might sound better but he’s still not fully recovered here, bless him).

This is a cheaper version of the original game, but just as much fun. Maybe I should have done the movie in black and white to add to the old fashioned movie type slapstick feel – what do you think?

It never gets old, does it, the hilarity of a pie in the face? I giggle every time I watch it! Am I just cruel?

Whipped cream splat in the face - it never gets old!

We then moved on to a more sedate game of good old fashioned Monopoly, but it didn’t last that long. H is very competitive and plays very seriously, but Toby is easily bored and a bit of a sore loser, so before long it got a bit too silly and we had to put it away.

Time for Mummy to give in and let them switch the X-box on….
