The day was full of interesting stories and it was surprising to see a much respected work-side to my Dad.
After we'd had cake I took on my two nephews(2$5). They'd made swords out of plastic blocks and I created two shield from an old cardboard box and took them round the house on the pretence of slaying a dragon and then rescuing the princess. We followed the dragon footprints (in the pattern of the carpet) hid in the kitchen when it flew overhead and then raided it's cave (under the dining table) for treasure. Once we'd done this once my mum got involved and wanted to plant real treasure in the form of some "dragon beans" (smarties sweets)
So as she planted the treasure I had to convince the boys to basically re-play what we'd just done, not very flawless.
When they did discover the sweets (this took ages since we'd been playing make believe so well they saw treasure EVERYWHERE) and as we'd slayed the dragon we decided to take over the cave turning the dining table into our den.
We then were attacked by giants and had to tickle their feet to get them to go away. (Maybe attracting them had something to do with us being hidden underneath the food on the table) After that the knights had to slay the evil witch who sadly managed to slay the knights so the princess (how did I end up being the princess?) crept into the kitchen for a cup of tea.
It was a fun time though, would have been better if halfway through our play I hadn't been in serious pain which sent me to bed for the next 48 hours. This scan date had better hurry itself up. I want to be able to play under a table/crouch down without being in agony.
