1. Nick is at home for the day because he wants to supervise the arrival of cable this afternoon. I take him a cup of tea in bed and make him help me choose cutlery.
2. To take a batch of muffins from the oven when the timer goes off, and to discover that they are perfectly cooked.
3. The cable guy is a gadget head. He is almost as excited as Nick about the box and its features; but when he sees the iPad, he's like a school boy. "Lucky!" He says his wife won't let him have one, but I think her resolve would have softened if she'd seen his little face light up.
4. At 11.30pm, he (by which i mean Nick) comes to bed. We have Internet once more.
