Not one to be phased by children saying they're 'bored' - especially these children of mine who have absolutely no right to be, I left them a new message to ponder, one that I have found to be true throughout my life:

  1. We play scrabble. As the game goes along the rules get laxer, foreign words and names are allowed, and by the end things like 'ie' or 'pb' finish things off nicely.
