Oh come all ye faithful......

A sure sign that Xmas is on the horizon, Fenwicks, a local department store has unveiled their animated festive window display, this year complete with carols belting out from 8 in the morning until yawn time....I love Xmas but just not yet!

Just time for one link tonight (the boy in the attic is apparently downloading the internet tonight, he's magnanimously agreed to turn off his downloads for a few minutes to let me post!)'s an online game with nice graphics and cool music that I haven't managed to play yet (for reasons see above!)


"Little Wheel is the story of a world of self-sufficient robots. Everything runs like clockwork until one day when a mishap at the power core shuts down the entire civilization. After ten thousand years of rusting, a chance lightning strike restores power to one small hero, who sets out to start everything back up again.

Little Wheel is played entirely with the mouse, and the design could not be friendlier. There's no hunting for pixels or hot-spots, as things you can interact with are highlighted by a gray circle. Instead of collecting seemingly random items and rubbing them against everything to see if it advances the story, most puzzles in the game are solved simply by choosing to click these interactive areas in their correct order."

Play Little Wheel

No! Not Christmas! Not yet! Cool shot, though :-)

It would drive me crazy if I had to work in a shop with more than a month of Christmas carols blaring out!

I'm off to try the game... Beats scrubbing the kitchen!

One of the many things I like about living in France is that christmas doesn't start until, well, christmas time! It really does only last a few days here, well maybe a week or so - which is enough!

Bah. Humbug!

Too early for christmas. It just spoils the whole thing, even for an atheist like me.

I have to say that I have always enjoyed the Fenwicks Christmas windows. Though I think that they are just a bit too clever these days, the naivety of the displays when we were kids was wonderful.
