Playing catch-up

Having got ourselves back to Brinklow I have left Joe to fix the loo and catch up on some boaty maintenance while I have snatched the car and headed off on a round robin of family visits. Wednesday I was in Lincolnshire checking on our Cottage, Thursday I headed off to Norfolk for a flying visit to Brother No. two in Bressingham before travelling to Essex to visit Brother No. one and Mother.
Today I have been on-line sorting car insurance for Mum as these new fangled computety things are just not her bag and she is of the generation where loyalty to a company or supplier was the norm. These days people tend to go where they can get the best deal, especially if it is just pressing a few keystrokes on a PC to achieve your aim.
A new television was also on the to-do list so after a trawl around the web world I went and bought her a new flat screen and a stand. Tomorrow I will have to set the blessed thing up, not something I am particularly looking forward to - I may well be on the hunt for a stray five year old somewhere who will instinctively know exactly what to do...

Well, A's 41 going on 5 and he's a dab hand with gizmos...what a shame we're not at home otherwise I would have sent him off on his white charger to rescue a fair maiden...

Would A also rescue a couple of wrinkly old biddies while he is on the fair maiden trip?
