Technology and me aren't the best of friends and, as a result, we tend to avoid each other wherever possible.
But there are occasions when we have to agree to differ and try to get along - normally for the sake of the children.
And, earlier this evening, we did just that.
After a gap of probably two years, I set up a Skype video call between my Mum, partner Derek, Boris the Dog and us Whites.
It was a memorable event for two key reasons:
- Charlotte has never Skyped anyone before, and
- It worked.
And, who knows, maybe next time Charlotte will stay awake.
