What To Get Your Mother for Christmas

What to get your mother for Christmas ?

This a question which I always find it hard to answer , especially when it come to my mother as she doesn't want chocolate again , I know who in their right mind turns down chocolate but obey her I must. Also she doesn't want smelly stuff, clothes perfume or a nice pair of cosy slippers and if I dared even think about buying her one of those foot warmers that you plug in , she would disown me. Though quite honestly if anyone was to get me a foot warmer I would be really, really grateful!

My mother keeps calling me in peak hour , which is not good when you are a pensioner , so i keep reminding her not to do this ! I tell her that if she does want to call me then she do really have a phone package that allows her to do this. I am finding it is a bit of a groundhog day when it comes to this as I tell her to call her phone company to sort it out , she promises she will and yet it is not happening.

I feel that if she was on line with a phone package that combined with broadband then it would suit her down to the ground , so the first hurdle is to suit out a tablet for her . A tablet would so much better as quite frankly a computer would freak her out so the easier to deal with the better, it is 2014 and a gentle nudge is needed to bring her into the modern age.

And the prices of electronic tablets now is so reasonable (you can find many deals online at Tesco) don't feel like you are breaking the bank when you purchase one , so a whole family owning electronic  tablets is not unreasonable. So as soon as I get my mother on line I feel a bombardment of emails ensuing !  in combination with the phone calls no doubt. Also owning a electronic tablet will allow my mother to use a digital camera as at the moment she is using an old school camera. The world at her fingertips is a modern miracle at the the fraction of the price in comparison with a laptop or PC. I expect she will also be teaching me some technical tricks as well and who even know she make even get into blogging !

  1. I loved it when my Mum went online. She skyped me when I was in America and it was great.

  2. My mums on Facebook - she does get confused with it sometimes tho x

  3. My mum uses Internet reasonably well as long as everything works! As soon as there is a problem she calls onto a friend 'who knew these things'. Having met him, well as my daughter would say her Guinea pig know more! But my mum swears by his computing skills *sigh*
