Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • Games ?

    I was just curious if anyone on here plays games? Any console , pc , mobile whatever....

    Do they help you feel better at times?

    Here are two of my favourite dudes that I've grown up with since 2002 ! Ratchet and Clank!

    There used to be a few of us who played games together on xbox live but that was years ago.
    Doves, Playboys, Biscuits, Barrels, Callies, Clear Caps, China Whites, Rhubarbs, Loony Toons, New Yorkers... you know, bang on, larging it, the full monty, safe as houses, pair of trousers, what a laugh, let's do another half!

      Just got a PS4. Spend most of my time working on my business, but needed something to unwind.

      I say unwind, then play COD and football and just get angry. So I guess it makes me feel better, but then like crap.

      I used to spend all night playing games, but that was not good at all. Apparently, sleep is important! I am worried I might get back into the habit of saying "just one more go at this" and before I know it, it's 3am and I need to be up at 7am.

      So maybe it is a double-edged sword...

        I spend faaar too much time on games...but i couldn't live without 'em! xD

        Literally, in a way, because pokemon has led me through many an ocd-induced no sleep nightime!

        These days though i spend most of my time on mmos, ehehe.
        Why didn't you just shout i'm lonely and i'm looking for a place to go ~ Where everything's an embrace and everybody wants to know

          Been into video games for as long as I remember. First game I ever played was Sonic on Sega Megadrive. Generally I'm a bit of an RPG buff, but also dabble in other open world games, city builders and stealth games. I use them to unwind - it really helps to get immersed in something and be transported to another world for a couple hours in the evenings!

            The only video game I used to play was Grand Theft Auto, but nowadays I play flashgames with my sisters - gosh, are they quick!
            The greatest female power is empathy to create relationships on a personal level. It's better for a woman to come across as more nurturing, more warm, and that is going to lend more success to her than for a man doing the same thing.

              I've always loved video games ever since I was a child, now I play pretty much every kind out there. This year has been fantastic for games there's been so many great ones released it's hard to keep up with them all!

              I grew up with Sonic too! Have you had a chance to play the new Sonic Mania that came out this year?

                Aah, unfortunately I never played any Sonic games past the Gameboy Advanced SP! Unless you count Shadow The Hedgehog, which was on original Xbox.

                Which GTA did you play? I remember playing the very first one on PS1 when I was a kid. Then my granddad saw the age certificate and took it off me.

                  Hi @Mike

                  I loved GTA: Vice City and San Andreas! Later I got GTA 5

                  I was so addicted, I'd play ithem through the night!

                  There's a store in town back home that sells the lot. One day I'd love to get the whole box set
