Pokémon Go :)

I think its bloody fantastic that Pokémon has returned 🙂  It brings back such great memories from when it first came out in the 1990`s.  First and Second born were mad about Pokémon and collected all the cards – it went something like this:

got, got, got, want, want, got, want, need, got, got, got, want, want, got, need …….. 🙂

Now we have Pokémon Go 🙂  I think its brilliant that, finally, kids have a computer generated game that is actually getting them out of the house – instead of sitting in front of a computer screen.  For years we’ve had kids, and adults, being knocked for obesity, lack of fresh air and exercise, lack of social skills, too much television, bla, bla, bla ……. and then this comes along, which surely a better alternative?  Of course you have to play it safe and give the general guidelines to the kids to still be careful and safety conscious but at least they are out, even with their parents in tow, having fun and creating memories 🙂  Plus the family dog gets loads of extra walks 🙂

Lana is collecting cards and wants to go catch em all – but she is too young to go alone and seeing as I can’t catch a football thrown at me – my chances of catching a Charizard is pretty remote – I may manage a Jigglypuff, as he’s the little pink chubby one and I can possibly run faster than him 🙂

Happy hunting folks 🙂 I’m hoping to find one and train it to do my ironing ……..
