This Easter I will be at home for 14 out of 15 days. I go away a lot, so it's going to be great.

I have some plans of things to do with my daughter. She wants to play pitch and putt, football and go cycling. We'll do that.

A few nights ago she asked me what I used to play at with my friends when I was a kid. I said football. But then I remembered.

My friend and I used to build forts out of blocks of wood, set at either end of the room. We used to fill them with plastic soldiers. Then we'd throw balls at each others forts - to destroy them. The skill was to build a solid fort.

My daughter liked the sound of it. So I have bought some soldiers: £3.29 for 30. I can't wait.
