We Are Xbox Family Ambassadors!!

A few weeks ago (much to the delight of my boys) we became an Xbox Ambassador family.
In our house this is MAJOR.
No1 son was an early adopter, switching to Xbox when it hit the UK in March 2002 and from the day it arrived no other games console saw the light of day.

Our original Xbox console from 2002 is still going strong.

December 2005, just in time for Christmas (and No1's birthday) the new Xbox 360 arrived in the UK. It was sold out with waiting lists everywhere and I had to get my hands on one.

I searched and searched and ended up paying way over list price on ebay but at least I had the 360!
That original machine was played and played and played - finally giving up last December just in time for the Christmas Xbox fairy to return!

The beautiful Xbox 360

No1 son's now away at university and Sonny is the new Xbox master. They both have Xbox LIVE and hook up virtually every week for a play date. I love that.

Next week we'll be getting hot and sweaty as we begin our Easter fitness challenge with Your Shape and Kinect. 
We'll be battling it out as a family so stay tuned to see vlog our journey.
