Gaming has become a big part of life for young people over the last couple of decades. While it used to be fairly rare to find people who spent their evenings looking at characters on a screen, most kids play some sort of video game in the modern world. Mobile devices have dominated this market, though consoles and gaming PCs have also gained popularity.

Do you love or hate Mondays? Mondays are often the most hated day of the week. I used to hate them as I worked 4.5 days a week as an Operating Theatre Nurse. Normally, I worked during office hour and occasionally did shift work. It meant I had to wake up at 7am to get to work at 8am. I have never been a morning person and after having a weekend rest, Monday was not my favourite day at work. More things seemed to go wrong too like making sure there were beds available for the patients, surgery instruments, etc. But since I am a SAHM, I now love Mondays!
A couple of months ago, I was debating with my husband whether we should get the Minecraft app for Mr K. He had been begging for days. We both knew very little about Minecraft and what the objective of the game is. I’ve since learnt that Minecraft is a Lego style adventure game which puts players in a randomly-generated world where they can create their own structures and contraptions out of textured cubes.
