Following the loss of my “little” brother Andrew, my mum and dad have gradually been dealing with the task of finding homes for his possessions. Being a major computer gamer, he had quite a few games consoles – including an actual Nintendo Wii. Sadly Andrew only got a few days play out of it before going back into hospital and dieing. early last week I was offered the Wii (plus several games and extra controllers etc.). It’s a weird thing really – Andrew’s Mii (avatar/profile thingamy) is still on there, so, as long as I keep it, we’ll be reminded each time we play it. However the sheer joy of playing it, I hope captures some of the spirit he had – cheers Andrew – a great legacy to pass on!

So, we spent this evening, rattling through Wii Play, Wii Sports and a bi of Super Monkey Ball : Banana Blitz – to varying degrees shouting, cursing, laughing and generally having a great time. Maybe tomorrow I’ll take on the more challenging business of tackling The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
