Quiet, boys at play

We've had Mouse's Best Friend staying for the weekend, so that his parents could have some grown-up time at a work's do. Now there's a terribly seventies phrase… Mouse's behaviour improves about ten-fold when Best Friend is here, he's anxious, I suspect, not to show himself in a bad light, which means that we have had a lovely peaceful weekend! The boys have played on various electronic devices (they start with X and W), arranged lots of miniature metal painted objects on the floor and done something very complicated with rule-books , dice and tape measures, condescended to play word games with the grown-ups and left the house when requested to do so, even although we were taking them out into the teeth of a gale.

Oh, and Mouse's Best friend lent me a book I have wanted to read since I gave it to him for Christmas… so I was happy too.

The Graveyard Book
Neil Gaiman
