This version of The Little Drummer Boy keeps popping up on social media as this years goto Christmas song…… but the unofficial king of Christmas songs Bing Crosby, joined with David Bowie years ago to produce this gem.

Which is your favourite?


Each year I am on the hunt for a new Christmas album.

This one is beautiful.

The itunes download includes a 45 minute burning log video to sit beside as you listen.



Saw this and just thought I should share.

Watch and be amazed.

“Ok?” says Mum wondering what on earth that is.

“Oh, I get it” I say after the last one…. Coldplay’s “Strawberry Swing”.

….and I couldn’t resist a gratuitous cute shot.

Dungeon Raiders Card Game Cover.

Dungeon Raiders Card Game Cover.

Yes, to finish the year off I am having a giveaway!

The designer, who some of you will know, Phil Walker-Hardling, has been helping our 12 year old develop and game test some of her ideas for games this year. She’s had a great time. This has meant we are closer to the coal face of any new games he designs.

Some of you may remember me mentioning Sushi Go by Adventureland Games a couple of weeks ago and encouraging you to support it’s first print run….. well good news. They smashed their ┬átarget goal and the game is set for printing early next year. I will keep you posted and give one of those away when it arrives.

But in the meantime…….

This is a great little holiday game for the family….or for yourself.

Dungeon Raiders.

We have been playing it quite a bit and it’s great fun.

It has a potential co-operative element…..although with older children with a bit more playing experience ….well, ┬álets just say there is less co-operation.

Watch how the game is played here.

If you would like to be in with a chance to be randomly selected to win this game….. please leave a comment telling me your favourite card or board game….or your least favourite.

The comments will close at midnight the 23rd of December (AEST) and I will announce the winner on Christmas Eve…. to be posted anywhere in the world soon after that.

So, go ahead give me your ideas.
