It all started with a new chair

I bought myself a new gas lift chair for my sewing - and it came . . .

in a BOX
The 3 children got busy and began planning
They worked together, co-operated and had a wonderful afternoon
As I was busy gardening, I was quietly watching on, and feeling a warm sense of pride and happiness at how they were playing so nicely together.
They might be "big" kids now, but hey . . .
everybody loves a new BOX!
. . . and there wasn't even any tears before bedtime!
Today they are out again, taking videos with ipods - great value, that chair!

Hilarious! Just goes to show that you're never too old to have some fun.

Brilliant! I remember when mine were small and they used to have more fun with the box than the present! Xx

Bet the two pussycats were a bit put out not being allowed to play with the box themselves :)

Isn't it funny that the box is so often the best part of the gift for kids of all ages! They look like they're having a wonderful time!

Often the simplest things bring the most pleasure-you must be a proud mum and my how that big boy of yours has grown!
