A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be given a place in the Shock Absorber Women Only Triathlon. They even let me give away five more free entries to the lovely people who read my blog.

He has purchased another one. In the intervening time when he didn’t have an X-Box, my brother was still constantly using gadgets and gaming consoles of one sort of another. He’s not alone though, gaming is becoming more and more popular, particularly amongst teenagers.

I would be! If you were momentarily consumed with envy, you’ll be delighted to know that I have five additional free entries to give away!
