my Wii and Wii Fit has arrived grin and he won't come home before 1pm to set it up

that's not FAIR!

<continues to consider knitting and fluffy kittens in an 'I don't do wires' sort of way>

Why cant you set it up? A few wires and you will be away

1 hour, 42 minutes and 17 seconds he's making you wait! The man's a monster!! grin

All you have to do is plug 3 cables or a scart in, plug the sensor bar into the back of the wii and your off. Oh and put batteries in the wii motes and balance board.
Do it youself, they only want the first go else

All you do is plug it into the Wii! Hardly difficult although I would say he is being highly unreasonable not to have ran home! Why don't you put him on a leash then he can't go out and must be at your beck and call

Twiglett, I'm horrified.
Of all people I'd have expected you to be able to plug in a few wires!

(In fact I'd have expected you to be the one that does all the man stuff at home...)

I'm so jealous. I really want a wii fit

Twig fFGS, it's the 21st century! You don't seriously need a MAN to plug a few wires in - get on with it woman... our mothers didn't burn their bras back in the 60's just for you to be defeated but mere technology?

I'm very envy by the way, where did you get it from?

Squirdle Fri 25-Jul-08 12:33:57

Do you not have a 14 yr old son to do it for you? That's who I ask blush

Grab a teen off the street. tell him you'll pay him with Mars Bars if he plugs in the Wii!

Where there's a will, there's a way!

VanillaPumpkin Fri 25-Jul-08 12:35:32

Where did you find a Wii Fit!!!!! envy

Squirdle Fri 25-Jul-08 12:36:59

Ours fits just under the TV, Vanilla (well it would if we had one...a wii that is, not a TV...wouldn't be much point in having a wii if we had no TV I guess!)

VanillaPumpkin Fri 25-Jul-08 12:40:42


No but seriously, will anyone have any ever in stock again before Christmas???
(I don't have the Wii yet either, but I am planning ahead grin)

LazyLinePainterJane Fri 25-Jul-08 12:40:47

It's easy! I did mine, wouldn't let DH touch it!

Tortington Fri 25-Jul-08 12:44:15

FGS woman get a grip.

how hard can it be?

just do it

Oblomov Fri 25-Jul-08 12:44:48

FGS Twig, get on with it yourself.

Twiglett Fri 25-Jul-08 12:46:46

look I can change a plug and do rudimentary plumbing and I'm the main driver and the car is mine and I do all the maintenance. I sort out all the jobs in the house.

But I'm married to an IT nerd and there is a lot of stuff already plugged in and around the tv .. so much that we had to pay a bloke to come and set it up so that the video, sky, dvd boxes all worked via the scarts



VictorianSqualor Fri 25-Jul-08 12:47:26

I love the way everyone is saying FGS Twig do it yourself, I do wonder if any old poster would've got the same replygrin

Twiglett Fri 25-Jul-08 12:47:47

Game has packages of Consoles and Wii Fits for normal prices .. we didn't have a Wii so it's probably easier

I've been a-hankering after one for a while I must say

and the stock-checker just popped up with stock ..

Are you like me, i.e. not allowed to touch anything electronical as I will break it?

Squirdle Fri 25-Jul-08 12:54:39

Hmm, I do have to agree with Twig there. Dh is also Mr Technical Genius and we also have many wires and plugs behind our TV. Hence the reason I get DS1 to sort it for me.
