Despite my dislike of televisions, we've had a new flat screen move into our home in recent days. The kids have been glued to it ever since.
Not much work forthcoming from the troops.
The beauty of this flat-screen, unlike our recent switch to digital (thankyou to the powers that be who switched off the analogue television service that has served us well over many years), is that it continues to function even if a cloud moves overhead. Something our digital signal receiving satellite fails to cope with.
It also continues to entertain when the power is off, as it has been so many, many times since storms started a couple of weeks ago.
And there are no adverts.
