sign of the times

When we were young played trains, buses, pirate ship and even mass (using bread cut up as holy communion...)

My Mum was taking care of Fionas kids last week and played bus with them which didn't last long before playing X factor which is UKs version of American Idol. My nieces and nephew all sang and warbled. Even my 2 yr old nephew who shouted his bob the builder song at top lung capacity...

My Mum even voted them off, no pushover this Granny. Kids loved it so much they asked their Aunt Orla to play it again next day and she video taped them using her camera and put it on the telly..

Where have the skipping ropes gone?
