I had to yield to defeat over his laptop which I spent hours working on only to have it constantly blue screen afterwards.
He's been like a lost puppy with no puter to play with and I can now reveal that when the laptop started playing up, Pat called me to ask advice on specs of new laptops as she was planning to get him a new one for Christmas.
At the time she mentioned she would probably have to give it him before the holiday and today she finally cracked under pressure and literally let him have it.
Look at his little face... When I had him on the phone earlier telling me how Santa had been, I could hear the excitement in his voice. He's been given a new Samsung smartphone too. He'll have nothing to open on the big day at this rate.
So he's a happy little welder again, bless...
