My Black-Eyed Boy

Just thought I would share with you a couple of pictures of Benn with his shiner. I had a phone call on Friday from the school nurse to say that Benn and a friend of his has colided and Benn had got a lovely bump on his eye. She said that she thought they have all been playing this "Bring Down Bulldog" which had in fact been banned due to too many pupils getting hurt - funny that!!!

After questioning him it turns out that they were in fact playing this and couldn't see why it had been banned, "don't worry mum this is what teenage boys always do" is the answer I received.

The first one was taken just after getting home on Friday and the second was yesterday at his football tournament.

Do you sometimes think you are banging your head against a brick wall!!! I think actually he is quite proud of his shiner.


  1. oh my goodness, that is QUITE a shiner!!! it must be a boy thing, my little girl wouldn't even think of that game :) LOL!! Very happy that he is okay and there is no serious damage :) Good luck to you!!!
