Have you ever played a board game and got so far, but been unable to finish it? We’ve just started playing Monopoly as a family and we love it – but it’s a long old game.

Screen Shot 2013-02-05 at 14.04.09So instead of abandoning the game half-way through I decided to create a sheet that would allow us to record all the information needed so that we could finish off at a later date.

I thought that other people that played Monopoly might want to use it too, so I’ve made it downloadable from this site.

However, it took me a couple of hours to get it right, time that you won’t have to spend, so I’m  asking for just 50p to cover some of that time. You can print it out as many times as you like though.

Payment is made using Payforit – it’s open to UK mobile phone holders only I’m afraid, but the process is simple and you pay using your phone bill (or available credit).

Technological Help

I was lucky enough to be at LeWeb recently to see Runnr.me pitch to the Start-up competition. Runnr.me is an app that, with the help of sensors in your running shoes, helps you to improve your running style and reduce injury.

It’s only in the development stage (you can leave your email address to be notified when the next stages happen), but I thought it was really interesting and it looked great. I was won over. In fact the main comment I made was to see if they could do something similar for swimming.

Well, today I came across this.

Garmin Swim

It’s called the Garmin Swim and that’s exactly what it does – it helps track your training, as well as helping with your technique.

All I’m gonna say is that if anyone wants to buy me a birthday present…
