I've had a jig about!

I've gotten all technical and "domino" linked my Blog to Facebook and Twitter...and so it goes around and around... I've given my blog a fresh new look too and added a Folksy shop. Do please tell me what you think, and tell me where you found me too - it lets me know it's all working.

What a happy find!

Whilst having a MAJOR tidy out of the spare room, which incidently doubles as a workroom, I found this beauty.....

I clearly remember my brother buying me this for a teenage birthday.  Boy was I happy!

For those of you who are not as advanced in years as myself, it is a Nintendo NES. The grandaddy of all gaming systems.

I wonder what little J will think of Mario in his wonderfully pixalated original form.....
I'm now off to plug it in..and if it works it's going to be a long night.
