The more I think about Mum and the state she gets in about things, I've realised that it is the "modern" contraptions that upset her most. I have just returned from a mercy mission to her house as her TV wasn't working properly. It needed retuning. This wasn't a problem 20 or 30 years ago when there was only 3 or 4 channels. Currently out of the countless channels Mum probably only watches 3 or 4. Her phone confuses her as it beeps when there is a message on 1571. I've suggest we cancel 1571 but she doesn't want to. The microwave "doesn't work" but we've put that down to operator error! Back when I were a lass (not that I'm that old) we didn't have these items and I assume we didn't have so many problems. Sorry just a moan.
