I’m giving it to my son who has just started senior school and is full of Americanism following a summer of television and gaming!

I’d feel guilty about that if I hadn’t spent the time moving us all (2 humans, 2 dogs, 5 rabbits, 2 guinea-pigs and an aged cat) from the north to south of England. It had been 18 years since I had moved and plugging The Boy into the electronic babysitter was the best option.

Sadly the cat (beloved Otto, approx 17 years old) died shortly after the the move.
