Aidan likes presents just as much as the next kid. You can probably tell from the gigantic grin on his face that he loves big presents more. In our house we have very limited battery operated toys. Working from home I just can’t bear the inane noises and flashing lights from toys but when Nuffnang asked to send Aidan a Thomas & Friends Trackmaster “Risky Rails Bridge Drop” set to review I couldn’t bring myself to say no.
It didn’t take him long to rip it all open and get stuck into it, handing me the instructions with a hopeful look in his eyes. I could do this I remember thinking to myself, it’s just a little train track.
Thankfully the instructions were pretty easy to understand, nothing like those brain benders you get from Ikea. I sorted out my pieces, put them in piles and tried to work through the process slowly.
Just as I was almost finished Steve waltzed in from a hard day at work, clicked in the last few easy pieces and took all the credit, his son beaming up at him with love, me in the corner swearing at the blue/grey plastic.
