What do Nubby Tope, Prettywigs Pattikin, Tippetty Nippet, Dr Bunfuz and (my favourite) Hoppy Spadge all have in common? Why.. they are all characters from Woodland Snap, of course!
Here is my collection of vintage card games - and I love them! Unfortunately, it is only me who loves them because everyone else is reduced to hysterical laughter when they look at the pictures or read their names. So any chance of a pleasant game of cards is completely out of the question.. and yes, I do mean you too, Justine...remember Mr Shrew??!
They are lovely - the pictures (especially the Little Grey Rabbit) - the crazy names of Woodland Snap - and slightly less lovely are the quite alarming pictures of the Woodland Happy Families! Particularly the afore-mentioned Mr Shrew.
Anyway, there has been no time for games this past week - I have been so busy I should be renamed Hoppy Spadge! First I have had to work all week (I usually only work Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday) so haven't been able to organise the house after all the work that has been done. You can hardly see the floor - and that's not exaggerating! We had to drive up to Wales (Newport) on Saturday to get Lucy's passport (she is going on an exchange in Germany next week!). That took the whole day...and then on Sunday, the first and only day I had at home, I woke with a migraine! I still managed to get some things done but the girls' beds arrive on Thursday and we need to be able to get in the room..
I have a 'to-paint' list as long as my arm..so I'm counting the hours until I can be alone in the house, switch on Radio 2, and start to 'home-make'!
