Listening to my two youngest talking about tech, games, consoles etc..is like listening to a French teacher giving a talk on 'A' level Maths!! (In French!)
( I don't can't speak French, and my math skills are obsolete!::)
One day I'll laugh about this!😑

I’m an owner of a radio. It lives in my kitchen and it’s hardly ever off.It  normally has 6 music on it. Not sure what that says about my age.
