Seasonal Felicitations!

Well, the portly chap in the red suit has almost caught up with us (and his pesky reindeer are already nipping at my heels!) so I'm going to sign off for a few days.

But before I go, I'd like to wish you all a very peaceful, healthy, and happy Christmas time.

A Cautionary Tale...

That moment when you realise your card details were saved on your son's Xbox and, since the last week of November, he's spent a whopping £187!!!

Yes. You heard me right. Let's all say it together, shall we?

One hundred and eighty-seven P.O.U.N.D.S!!!



Fortunately, the nice people at Xbox support (0800 FML!!!) were extremely sympathetic and well accustomed to witless parents phoning them up in a panic because they'd just realised their precious offspring could spend actual real-life money inside the Robux game. 

They kindly gave me a refund with the understanding that this was a one time deal. If this ever happens again, tough titty.

Needless to say I have removed my card details from Microsoft's data base, and am now preparing the wee talk I'll be having with my boy when he gets home from school.
