For example, I picked Izzy up from school as usual, and had the following conversation ...... as usual.
"What did you get up to today?" I asked after fastening her seatbelt.
"Can't remember," came the stock reply.
"It's probably not worth you going to school if you can't remember what you've done there," I pointed out.
"Cool, does that mean I don't have to go anymore?" she asked clapping her hands.
"Hell no. I need a good accountant and I've nominated you. So you'd better start remembering what goes on in the bloody place," I replied.
"Don't say 'bloody', it's swearing," Izzy pointed out indignantly. As I said, so far it was a bog standard normal day.
By this time we had arrived home.
And the reason why it wasn't a bog standard normal day, was immediately spotted by Izzy.......
"Mama, we've got a new gadget!" she hollered, after spotting a shiny black thing on the kitchen table.
Pic.No.1 Feast your eyes on my new Roberts DAB Solar Powered Radio
"I know we have - how cool is that?" I asked her, nodding with approval at her appreciation.
"What the heck is it?" she asked, ruining the moment somewhat.
"A bloody radio, isn't it obvious?" I asked, feeling a bit put out. Izzy just shrugged and took herself back to a pebble she had found on the way home from school, and which had kept her thoroughly entertained ever since.
Kids these days don't know they're born. So instead dahlink, I am going to have to tell you about my new gadget. It's a Roberts SOLAR powered radio, and not only that, if there isn't enough
If I liked camping, it would be perfect. But as it happens, I don't like living off the land and eating things that would make a billy goat puke, so I shall be using it in my bathroom. It means that I can listen to Radio 4 whilst having a shower in the morning - thus spicing up a pretty dull part of the day.
So far, I haven't had the radio long enough to assess how good it is with the whole solar charging thing. But it has perfomed well with regards to picking up loads of digital channels and being easy to operate.
For the first time in ages, I can't wait to have a shower tomorrow morning. I shall let you know how I get on.
Do you have any good gadgets that you can recommend for me? And how is your week going?
