Hello all, a little something for you!

Marelli Tue 04-Dec-12 10:01:07

I've had a go at that phoenix.....I'm worn out grin!

Anne58 Tue 04-Dec-12 10:03:56

I haven't tried it yet, but we all used to do it in the office each Christmas. It's quite clever because you can always go back to a window that you liked, but it won't let you open one until the day!

Ana Tue 04-Dec-12 10:13:32

Me too! grin

annodomini Tue 04-Dec-12 10:15:38

That's yet another potential timewaster, thanks, phoenix. hmm

Ana Tue 04-Dec-12 10:18:03

I feel absurdly proud that I won the Grinch-bashing game! blush

A favourite of mine from a few years ago was Elf Bowling, I wonder if that is incuded in this years?

Anne58 Tue 04-Dec-12 22:00:27

Isn't anyone else going to have a go? (it's not compulsory, by the way!)

Anne58 Wed 05-Dec-12 08:52:02

Today we have a song, so no games unless you go back to one of the previous windows!

Ana Thu 06-Dec-12 12:35:04

Today's game is just too hard for me! confused

Anne58 Fri 07-Dec-12 10:14:22

Another game!

Marelli Fri 07-Dec-12 10:39:45

Had another 5 goes at this one - Santa has awful flatulence....grin!

Ana Fri 07-Dec-12 10:49:08

I like this one! grin

Anne58 Fri 07-Dec-12 11:21:47

It's good fun, isn't it!

Marelli Fri 07-Dec-12 11:47:01

I've just had another go.....I've not even got dressed yet blush I've shared it on Facebook, though!

Ana Fri 07-Dec-12 11:51:52

The mince pies vanish too quickly for my Santa to get any! grin

Anne58 Fri 07-Dec-12 11:57:49

Yes, Ana I can't seem to be able to get him to them in time!

Marelli ! Hope it gets lots of "Likes" on Facebook, as that bumps up the amount of money donated to Crisis.

A cartoon today!

Ana Sat 08-Dec-12 18:16:35

Yes - didn't bother with that, although I might later. Had another go at getting Father Christmas drunk instead - love it when he gets to the edge of the roof and is swaying dangerously! grin

Anne58 Sun 09-Dec-12 11:37:11

Another game!

Anne58 Mon 10-Dec-12 09:31:42

Another game, but I can't seem to get it to run, might have another go at Santa on the roof instead!

Ana Mon 10-Dec-12 11:32:52

Apparently you have to install Adobe Shockwave Player to run it. It's probably harmless, but I don't want to mess up the firm's computer so I'll give that one a miss, I think! Back to Santa...grin

Marelli Mon 10-Dec-12 18:13:29

Santa's my favourite, too, Ana! grin

Todays game is one that I never could do, but I'm sure some of you will manage it!
