Yeah, I remember the anxiety with James as he got older and I felt I couldn't rightly do the "where are you going, who with and what time will you be home" routine, and just left him to live his life. We talked about it and agreed that if he was home when a meal was cooked then a portion would be cooked for him. If he wasn't home, he could fix his own food when he got in. Aside from that, we talked about what he'd been doing and where he'd gone but in a chatty way because we were sharing about what we'd each been up to.

It took me ages to be able to sleep at night knowing he wasn't home, and I had no idea where he was or when he'd get in .... if he came back at all. It was soooo scary! He tells me now that he really appreciated it, and was grateful. It was freedom, even though he still lived with us, and it was a kind of half way house to the fully independent living he has now.

G'morning

yira, I'm glad Jack got home ok... scary when you don't know for sure. I still have that with G sometimes thanks to his weird work shifts and phone being permanently on silent in his pocket

Chiska, good news about your car

So I get here too late as usual. My fault for being such a lie-abed (or rather a late-to-bed-cos-reading sort of person).

Dad is much better. Bro was ill in the night, so youngest bro taking over from further away (there's another one to go before they get to me. I'm the most far away of everyone, being nearly in Scotland )

yira - that is such a teenage scenario. I hope it doesn't happen too often. Their thinking brain doesn't fully nature till 23!!!!! Thought you controlled your reaction just brilliantly

Hey Ellie - sorry to hear bro is poorly!

Chiska - yippee!! Car!!! Hurray

Today my Kindle Fire comes. Himself says that I ought to get it registered to my account today (we bought it on his 'cos he has a Prime account which gives free next day delivery and we ticked the "gift" box so that it wasn't registered to his account). The thinking is that if I wait until Christmas Day Amazon is going to be soooo busy that he isn't sure their servers will hold out! (I must admit that I will be sending e-vouchers up to Scotland & Shetland on the day and I suppose lots of others will too).

He also said I need anti-virus from what he was reading in the night. I'll go with ANYTHING EXCEPT AVG - because I cordially hate, loathe and despise AVG with all my heart and mind.

Have you ever tried getting it out? After you - ho, ho - use what they laughingly call their uninstall facility - try going through your computer with a fine toothcomb. It leaves masses of hopeful, sneaky files lying around the Registry ready to leap back into action when your back is turned. Or worse, still active but silent. I had to go through the Registry with the Search facility and take out every single file one by one.....

I hate any "protection" program that reports on my every on-line activity back to its masters who do who-knows-what with the info without having the balls to admit it!

I'll let himself sort out the anti-v bit - Kaspersky sounds good to me but if he has something else in mind that's OK with me

I had no idea that I'd need it but it makes sense since the Fire is far more than just a reader.

And I know a lot of pc programs are invasive but AVG was sooooo "it's for your own good" and secret about it that it totally pissed me off and I ripped out every AVG file in my machine, alternately swearing at the program and chortling with glee at its removal. I know Google does stuff but they up and say so, and they let me screw things up if I want to without leaping in to gently prevent me like nanny stopping a kiddie jumping in a puddle. Dammit, I want to jump in puddles. How else do I know how deep they are?
