Chloé’s 4th Birthday!

Chloé is now 4 years old. We celebrated her birthday with an early wake up call, presents and an evening bowling on the 17th May.

She was quite spoilt this year. We got her a new DSI XL as her old DS had crapped out as she keeps dropping the damn thing. We got her some medical stuff as she seems really interested in that kind of thing. A stethoscope and a sphygmomanometer and some medical supplies such as bandages, plasters etc from Poundland.

She also asked for a Bean Bag and some new headphones for her DS and a few other things. After Ryan had finished school, we all went to Eastleigh to go bowling for the evening, afterwards she would choose what she wanted to do for dinner. Obviously, she chose McDonald’s!

Practical Driving Test

I booked my practical driving test now that I have successfully passed my theory. I have added a counter in the sidebar on the right of my blog.

When I pass my driving test, it will change my life so much. We will be able to go to so many places that we had thought were just too expensive or where the public transport is quite bad.

Having my licence means I will be able to see my family more often. Rather than every 3 months I will be able to see them perhaps every month or even less! It’s all so exciting, I can’t wait!

Portal 2 – Perpetual Testing Initiative – My First Look

Unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple of weeks then you should already know and have played with the new feature that Valve added to Portal 2, the Perpetual Testing Initiative! Ever since they announced this awesome news, I have been wanting to get my hands on it. So, on May 8th they finally released it to the public. It is awesome!

I recorded my first time on it and uploaded it to YouTube for all to see!

The map isn’t brilliant, but its not bad for 25 minutes of work. If I was to do that in Hammer, then it would have taken perhaps a couple of hours to do! So there it is. It’s now out in the wild and people have been mapping like crazy fools over the past 2 days. As I write this, there have been 28,641 maps made.

If you haven’t jumped on the Portal band wagon, then I suggest you do it right now. For the next 12 hours Portal 2 will be £5.09, then will go back up to its usual price of £14.99. If you’[re real smart, then you will also spend an extra £3.40 and get both Portal 1 and 2 together!

If you’re one of those people who need to buy the game on a physical disk, then head on over to Amazon and buy it for £16.00 and free delivery if you live in the UK.

Maths worksheets

As it was still early last night after I printed off those maths worksheets, I decided that I would get Ryan to complete a few for me. I explained what he had to do and he done the rest himself. I am really impressed with his work! He had no trouble at all!

Of course, I had to record a video of him doing one! He’s completing the Greater Than, Less Than, or Equal To 1 – 5 worksheet in the video.

While he was doing the worksheets, I also snapped a few photos!

This is the set up that I used to film him doing the worksheet!
