Going ga-ga over modern gadgets
Well I, for one, am tickled by this sudden cold snap. Not only because it should see off a few spiders, but I’ve got a brand new Nest thermostat and I am so infatuated, it’s like having a new baby. If you don’t know, this is a digital thermostat (designed by two former Apple employees), which you control via an app. I turn the heating up from my sofa with my phone. I wake with a cold nose and flick the heating on without having to fling my duvet back first. I warm my flat up when I’m 20 minutes from home. I’m obsessed. I went to a one-yearold’s birthday party at the weekend where there were 52 other one-yearolds and several parents looking smug about their offspring. But I went home very happily (a brief respite from tears). No nappy changes with a Nest.
