Mum spoke with her brother and his family tonight. They are all sitting in their separate rooms texting, playing computer games or watching tv on a beautiful summer evening. Mum suggested that they have a couple of technology free evenings, and go and take their dog for a walk on the beach instead.
Mum is trying to listen to her own advice and come home and potter around outside and enjoy the lovely evenings while they last. So she is going to try and turn the computer on at seven pm, and leave it on for another twenty minutes, then shut it down at 9.30pm, and get some jobs done before bedtime. She usually has the laptop on beside her all evening, but she thinks two and a half hours is enough in the evening time.
