I drove to Devon this afternoon, to spend the weekend with Mother.|
The theory was that Julia would be joining me but a combination of circumstances including illness/broken sleep and an unexpected change in some of her academic deadlines means that she's back working in Sheffield instead. We'll be rebooking for another weekend in a couple of weeks.
So far we've plumbed in Mother's new toy (a combined digital freeview decoder and DVD recorder) and had an argument about batteries (you shouldn't recharge 1300mAh and 2000mAh batteries mixed in the same charger, and you shouldn't angst about throwing away disposable batteries untested when they're dated "best before 2003").
Best quotation from Mother so far: "Spend a day with me and it'll keep your blog going for a week".
