I am still feeling a bit poorly but I feel slightly ashamed of feeling sorry for myself. There is a fair helping of yeurk around, but I can type, browse, play computer games, listen to music (I found this incredibly soothing) and the new Sky remote came.
I spent more than perhaps I could have getting the remote from Sky. You can get them on ebay and I'm sure a lot of other places. I am very cautious with electrics and electronics, however, as I don't really know what I am talking about and I am aware that I could very easily be ripped off by poorly constructed fakes. Our old remote was fading away with use and old age, so if we wanted to change channel we had to get one and I bit on the bullet and paid a fortune. However when it came, not only was it the right one but it also had the batteries included! They were separate to the unit, neatly packed and while they weren't exactly duracell they were included. I never expect batteries to be included. It just goes to show that sometimes things still work.
Father continues the same.
