Minecraft animations - SLAMACOW

My god, I don't even play the game any longer (hardly ever did, but I did at least have a go) but I could watch these videos all day! :-D

SLAMACOW's YouTube playlist.

Real fun.
Kid friendly.
Real nicely done.
But most of all, fun.

I was introduced the best possible way - oldest son passionately retelling one of the stories with intricate detail then we googled it together and found the first one:

Enjoyed it and looked at another:


(this one my son spent some time explaining the context for, it was interesting)

I could link the post full, but please just go to SLAMACOW's Minecraft videos on the tube and - Enjoy!

19 rookie mistakes new parents (and old) make

This entire list had me smiling, number 16 hit home alright. X-)

16. Staying up late for no good reason after your baby has gone down for the night.

The next day you’ll realize just how bad an idea this is.

Safety information

Why on earth aren't there more people like this around? Perhaps not every flight, but at least once in a while it would be AWESOME to be subjected to information handed to you like this - fast, fun, informative. :-D GOD does that woman speak quickly! :-o My non-native English speaking ears are not quite up to scratch...

Not lost

I haven't gotten lost at all this week. That must account for something?

But I wonder when the adrenaline levels will start to normalise themselves?
I jump high when I see my own shadow appear unexpectedly, an occasional street sign have made me jump too. I SWEAR a particular street sign right outside my office looks just like an 'enderman' (Minecraft)... :-D (like a little too tall, too skinny, totally black figure which can teleport and scare the sh*t out of you...)
I meet people, releaved every time I realise they're just walking dogs or that they are women. I have nearly stopped dead in my tracks as I rounded a corner and happened on somebody innocently standing there smoking.

But I keep walking, certain that soon all of this will feel totally illogical and a little embarrassing. :-)

Extraordinary tooting

Thank you internet, for reminding me of this fantastic talent. Mr Roger Whittaker.
His music entertained me, us, through my childhood. Warm, good memories all around! :-)
