Elliot’s front upper right tooth finally fell out…

It has been on its way out for a couple of months and it finally dropped out of its own accord early this afternoon. There was a mild panic when he realised that it was out but that he did not know where it actually was. Thankfully eagle eyed Olly was on hand to locate it on the floor in the conservatory πŸ™‚

Tooth fairy beckons tonight…. Wonder if she’ll make it given it is New Years Eve…


Aladdin at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford

Grandma and Grandad treated us all to a show at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford yesterday evening. The show began at 5pm and was starring Billy Pearce and Chico along with 20 or so others. There were 4 acrobats included at various points in the show and they were really rather good.

The boys THOROUGHLY enjoyed the show – even more so when they caught the toilet humour that was interlaced into the show from start to finish πŸ™‚ Flatulence is always going to be funny to a Rust boy…..

We were sat 6 rows from the front so we managed to get wet during the window cleaner gag as well as being involved in all of the other action πŸ™‚

The cast really put on a tremendous show that kept us all entertained for the best part of two hours.

Maybe we will be making this a standard part of Christmas for the Rusts between Christmas and New Year – maybe we will try to get a lounge next year πŸ™‚

The Hobbit

Uncle Tim and Heather invited us all to join them for lunch yesterday at the Hobbit in Norland.

It must be nearly 15years since we have been to the hobbit – the last time being mummy, daddy and great grandma and great grandpa πŸ™‚

The owners have just (in 2013) completely renovated the place and it really is nice inside – that said it was pretty nice the last time we were there πŸ™‚

Sadly there was no Steak pie on the menu but the food was pretty good – the deep fried Brie was a little strange – was a bit like beer batter (without the beer if that makes any sense) or fish and chip shop batter.

It was great to have all of us together for a meal and then Tim and Heather very kindly paid for us all – thanks guys πŸ™‚

Finished off with a coffee over at Tim and Heather’s place at the foot of Wainhouse Tower πŸ™‚

A great morning / early afternoon.

Xbox 360 woes…

On Sunday night the Xbox stopped working – it appeared that the power brick was not able to supply the Xbox with enough juice. Β Simon set about diagnosing early on Monday to find that sadly the power supply was fried and needs replacing – GREAT timeing πŸ™

It seems that the power supply unit is not something that can be purchased from the usual outlets and so the only option is online πŸ™

Simon ordered one yesterday lunchtime and INCREDIBLY it arrived this morning to save the day πŸ™‚

The boys will probably not want to play on the Xbox tomorrow but you can bet that if they do get any new Xbox items from F.C. and want to play with it, we would have been in BIG trouble…. πŸ™

All’s well that ends well thankfully πŸ™‚
