Dragging my dad into this decade...

I've just spent the better part of an hour helping my dad set up his new iPhone. Which it much less time than it took me to help my mum set hers up. I don't get it, mine worked with no problems.

Got there in the end though, and my dad has finally joined this decade with my mum's old 5s instead of the very slow 3s he had been using for the last fifty years (approximately). I heard a rumour that he's going to change his contract so he has some data too, which would be nice because as it is, he can only receive iMessages when he has wifi, and apple, not being that smart, default sends iMessage to anyone with an iPhone, meaning that every time I text him, I have to change the settings on my phone if I want to be sure that he'll get it. Or else if he's at work, the shops, walking the dog, anywhere but at home, it just disappears into the ether.

In other news, I ran the branch today and there were no major disasters. A few minor ones, but so far so good. Four more days of being the boss to go... (and so much that can still go wrong!)

I'm in countdown mode to new Game of Thrones. T minus six minutes and counting. Although I'm going to watch it a bit late so I can fast forward the adverts.
