It was Saturday night and I should have been in the pub drinking beer, playing pool and wasting money on the fruit machines.
But instead I was kept indoors.
Why? Because the kids had introduced me to the latest playground craze – loom bands.
It’s a simple idea, where tiny rubber bands are used to make coloured chains, bracelets or even animals (I make a pretty mean penguin by the way).
Sadly, I got quite into it, even going on YouTube to look up how to do more elaborate designs.
I know, I know, I imagine I lost valuable man points every time I picked up one of those bands.
I had to put the boxing on in the background to try to even things up!
