School’s out Friday

We’ve just got a Telstra TBox (to go with our 100G Bundle – I’m in internet download heaven!) and my son has been having a great time surfing YouTube and discovering cool videos.

Enjoy your weekend, whatever comes your way. : )

It’s something they will be able to relate to I’m sure.
