    After all, why would anyone but old people with wandering minds and too much time on their hands care?

    Maybe it's you who is 'getting nuttier'?

    Presented with a pizza menu yesterday. Not one recognizable pizza on the list. "They're designer pizzas" a mate said.
    Fuck bearded twats and their craft beer and designer pizzas. All i wanted was a simple Margherita or Napoletana.

    VN you should have started with one that had cheese and Tom plus all the other shite and then explained to the waitress/waiter that you want it without x,y,z etc until you've got down to your marggy.

    Ever since I returned to NZ end of March we have been cleaning the house ourselves as C-19 put paid to our regular cleaners - no problem, though. Can one! (For SG and MY peeps)

    Today, however, the youngest one commitetd the cardinal sin of hijacking Spotify by playing her - clearly awful - 'music' . . . while I was right in the middle of blasting Scorpions into my eardrums!!! (Oh, and vacuuming)



    Doom and gloom followed

    I've noticed my kids sleeping longer now too. Growing takes it out of them I suppose. And 4:50AM for me... The little bastards.

    Anyway not my daily moan this is:



    I got taxed on an investment I'm losing money on.

    Ok so it was only $0.54 and swings and roundabouts and all that but it's still annoying.

    Rugrat #1 finally broke his beloved tablet last night.

    He dropped it in Thailand earlier this year, cracked the screen but it still worked well.

    Last night, he finally did the final deed.

    That's 4 devices in 6 years he busted!

    ^ Tell him you'll get him a second hand one, maybe 7 years old with 3G capability and if he breaks that its just the TV and newspapers or he earns enough to buy one himself. he'd be well in to job deficit territory with me by now.

    * Cough * ... all the kids tablets are 2nd hand.

    I buy the ones which are refurbished by the manufacturer.


    Recently I bought a Lenovo IdeaPad D330-10IGM 10.1-inch Laptop/Tablet


    • ntel Celeron N4000 CPU @ 1.10GHz, 2 Core(s)
    • 4GB RAM
    • 31GB eMMC Hard Drive


    for (equivalent) BHT 2,500, delivered to my door recently, comes with a 1 year warranty.

    Current model and selling for BHT 9,600

    It's for their home schooling during Covid-19 and, even though the Bays are back at School now, no way is he getting that one.

    He can wait till I can grab something at the Auctions.


    He dropped a "Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 850F 8-inch Tablet" ... grrrr



    BTW, before other chirp in, I know a Lenovo IdeaPad with a slow-ish 2 core processor and 4 GB of RAM is not going to set the computing world on fire, remember it's for a 6YO

    ^^ PH YouTube - Yes ... Roblox - not discovered (yet)

    ^ CCC The broken tablet had a good cover.

    He dropped it (accidentally) onto the tiles about 6 months ago.

    Last night, they were playing 'travels' (had a big brown cardboard box which our new freezer arrived in yesterday) which they converted into an aeroplane and were packing their bags to fly.

    Shoved their hard plastic dinosaurs in their bags, along with the tablet and proceeded to sit on their bag ... bye bye tablet.

    Screen went from cracked to shattered as the Triceratops pushed into it

    If it's any consolation my kids wrecked charging ports etc on tablets over a dozen times in three years, fortunately they were all damaged and replaced before the end of warranty.
    Now their on iPhones and touch screen laptops, that's when the real fun starts

    I just don't want to teach them the lesson that if you break one, Dad will go and buy a better, faster new gadget.


    He does have access to a Tablet. It's called the 'Educational' tablet where he can play Educational games, do Jig Saw Puzzles,
    Einstein teaches you how to tell time, Maths quiz's, read books etc. Almost no limit how long he can play that one.

    Lessons need to be learnt

    To each their own, of course, I find saddling kids with electronics at too young an age places both too much responsbility on them with such costly things and detracts from non-electronic activities.
    Our youngest is 14 and has had a phone and laptop now for two years - because her school requires both. She is limited to one hour of electronics a day, aside from her homework, and she is fine with it.

    I'm glad we didn't have all this stuff when I was a child . . . so many negative consequences
